Born in Germany, Jurgen grew up in Sydney, Australia with his parents and brother. At the age of 17 he was invited to a surf event put on by Christian Surfers where he met God, got saved, and had his life changed forever. With a growing passion for God, Jurgen enrolled at Hillsong Bible College where he attended for 2 years. After finishing college, he left beautiful Sydney to move to South Auckland, New Zealand to help start a Hillsong church plant.
During the seven years they were in New Zealand, Jurgen and Leanne had a profound and long lasting impact on the city of Auckland especially amongst its youth. He had grown and developed the youth ministry at South City CLC to make it one of the largest in the nation at that time. In the summer of 1998 Jurgen and Leanne felt a strong call from God to move back to Australia and planted themselves in C3 Church Oxford Falls were they were appointed as youth pastors. In the seven years they were part of the team at C3 Oxford Falls Jurgen and Leanne grew the youth ministry to over 750 strong and pioneered the hugely successful Phenomena youth conference that hosted over 3000 delegates.
In the summer of 2005, Jurgen and Leanne planted C3 San Diego. with it's first Sunday attendance of 50 people. In 2011 the first permanent C3 San Diego location was built in the Carlsbad area of San Diego.
