Hi! At the age of 19 I had a powerful and life-changing encounter with the love of God through the charismatic movement in the Anglican church. Since that time I have been totally sold out for God! He gave me a burning vision to see the church in our nation united and on-fire.
For the last thirty-five years, I have been involved in ministry pastoring and teaching. A few years ago I resigned as a pastor at Stairway Church Whitehorse in response to a call from God to start this ministry. I have also taught for many years at Stairway College on the subject “Discover your Unique Destiny”. My heart burns to see individuals experience God for themselves and living their destiny with passion and purpose. This year God led us out of Stairway and we currently attend Oaktree Anglican Church in Elsternwick.
I love teaching and imparting the keys of the Kingdom to all who are hungry and seeing people discover their prophetic identity.

“Monumental! Thank you Carolyn, you have a unique combination of many spiritual gifts! With your help I have discovered how unique and precious I am to Father God. I am forever grateful” (Karen, St. Matthews)
“Carolyn your breakthroughs break strongholds off people’s lives in every area, it is very powerful. You are an amazing presenter, you give others new hope and call them up into their destiny” (Sue, Stairway Whitehorse)
“Carolyn your teaching is absolutely inspiring and life-giving. You put God on display and not yourself, you are a powerful servant-leader and such a blessing to others” (David, Riverside Christian Fellowship)
“Carolyn you awakened hope in me when I had given up. My heart felt dead, but your message brought it back to life. You filled me with the truth and a new confidence that God had an amazing future for my life. I wasn’t even going to come to this workshop because I had given up on life, but I am so glad I did. I have learnt through you that my life’s challenges can be the foundation of my greatest passions and ultimately, they are woven into my destiny”. (Karen, Barrabool Hills Baptist)
“The word of the Lord came to me, saying Jeremiah, what do you see? And I said, I see a branch of an almond tree, blossoming in the late winter. Then the Lord said to me, you have seen well, for I am alert and active, watching over My word to perform it.”
The Almond Tree in Jeremiah’s vision was being transformed from one season to another – winter to spring. God used it to prophetically represent what He was promising to do for His people – awaken them to a new season of life and fruitfulness.
This picture of the Almond Tree awakening and bearing fruit is what God desires for our lives. (Psalm 1)
The vision God gave me was to see the body of Christ throughout Australia arising in her full authority to proclaim the kingdom with boldness and release His supernatural power and love throughout our nation!
The mission of Almond Tree Ministries is to partner with God to awaken the Body of Christ to the fullness of their destiny, so that they can be His light in the world.
As God’s people awaken to their true identity and God-given dreams, they start to blossom and bear much fruit.
Proverbs 13:12 says “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life”.
This verse speaks of the life-giving nature of fulfilled desires. As people step into their God-given dreams, they become “trees of life” and kingdom-builders.
Live bold and bloom!
To live the John 10:10 life that Jesus spoke about, we need to understand who we are as sons and daughters of God and embrace our dreams and destiny. Kingdom dreamers are world influencers!
If every believer discovered the dreams God had placed in their heart, they would begin to live in the power, joy and abundance Jesus spoke of. They would also see how God had wired them to uniquely impact His world.
God wants His people fully awake, fully alive and bearing much fruit. Jesus said in John 15 “it is to my Father’s glory that you bear much fruit”. This is the vision of Almond Tree Ministries.
