Pastor Lyn was born in Brisbane and grew up on the Gold Coast. She married Barry in 1972. In 1974 God broke into their lives one evening in a small Assemblies of God church in New Zealand. As a result, they were both dynamically born again and in 1980 they helped establish a Christian Life Centre church on the NSW Central Coast. Then in 1988, they pioneered Living Waters Church in Terrigal.

Pastor Barry was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2015, as a result of having worked with asbestos many years before. In early 2016, Barry took the decision to stand down as Senior Pastor and anointed his wife, Lyn to take over the position. Pastor Barry was released into eternal life in late 2016. Pastor Lyn now carries the mantle of Senior Pastor and continues to lead the church with power and authority.
