Who we Are

Peter Jackel

Minister

Our Senior Pastor Peter and his wife Samantha have been leading Carnegie Church since 2017. Peter and Samantha’s story is like no other – two broken people with a broken marriage – yet after a powerful deliverance, God restored not only their marriage but their lives. Thirty two years on they have five adult children, who all are involved in their local church.

Peter was radically saved at the age of 15 and since then has not stopped talking about Jesus. Peter leads with an all-consuming passion for the word of God, equipping people ‘to go and be disciples’ whether down the road or across the globe. Some of his favourite topics are ‘truth’, The Authority of the Believer’, ‘Deliverance from Demons’ and ‘End Times’.

Samantha Jackel

Playgroup Coordinator

Samantha authored her own book ‘My Purple Pants’ in 2009 detailing her amazing recovery from child sexual and emotional abuse. She has spoken internationally, ministering in churches and gatherings in Sweden, USA and here in Australia. Her heartbeat is for every person to walk in forgiveness and finding their identity in Christ and not in their circumstances or situations. In 2014 Samantha was Barnados Victorian Mother of the Year!
