Richard and Sue Botta

Senior Pastors

PS. RICHARD & SUE BOTTA ARE THE SENIOR PASTORS AT C3 CHURCH CARLINGFORD
Richard Botta has loved God all his life and first felt the call to full-time ministry when he was 16. He graduated with a Mining Engineering degree with honours from UNSW after finishing high school and worked for a while as a Youth worker with at risk youth on the Central Coast of NSW after University.

He then went to Bible College and on completion worked for 5 years as a Consultant Engineer. He started in full time ministry in January 1990 as an Associate Pastor at Christian City Church Lane Cove.

In September 1994, Richard, and his wife Susan, planted Christian City Church Carlingford. The church originated from a vision Ps. Richard Botta received to start a congregation in the Epping/Carlingford area in the Northwest of Sydney, to reach out to this region and beyond. C3 Church Carlingford started with a group of 70 committed people growing to over approximately 450 people today.

In addition to this, Ps. Richard oversees three Australian C3 churches and is the Regional Overseer of the South Asia Region for C3 Church Global.

PS. SUE BOTTA
Sue has a passion for winning souls to Christ; seeing them discover faith, hope and love tangibly in their lives, as well as seeing people freed to worship God. With a background in Agriculture and Event Management, Sue delivers the Truth in a practical, humorous, compassionate and unique way. She and her team established ‘Everywoman India’ and now hold annual conferences throughout South Asia to see women and pastors released into their calling and gifting.
