The Vision for Risen Church


Risen Church

It all started when...

Glenn Hohnberg had been leading an evangelistic ministry in the CBD of Brisbane for many years. He started thinking and praying 'what next?' In the middle of the night - yes really - it occurred to him that a new church should start with a focus to reach Griffith University and the city for Jesus' sake.

That's the story of Risen Church in a nutshell - for the campus, for the city, for Jesus on the Southside of Brisbane.

In just a short time

We started in February 2017 meeting in Glenn and Kathryn's home. We now meet on the campus at Griffith University.  In just a short time Risen Church is already made up of aussies and internationals, students and workers, singles and families. We are connecting with the campuses of Griffith University and the surrounding city, seeking to serve and care for all we come into contact with. 


Risen Church is a Geneva Push approved church plant. We are an Independent evangelical church planning to be part of the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches.
