Salt Leadership Team

Dan Godden

Lead Pastor

Dan is married to Renae and has 3 young daughters. After being convicted of the great need for more Bible-based churches in Australia, Dan and his family moved to Wollongong to start Salt Church in 2012. He loves a good movie, a good guitar solo and a good coffee.


Geoff Ackman


Geoff loves helping people know God better. After graduating from Moore Theological College in 2014, Geoff and his wife Fiona moved to Wollongong to join the Salt Church team. He’s a drum-playing martial-arts-student and father of 3 kids, who doesn’t like long romantic walks on the beach because there’s no ankle support.


Andy Hobbs

Membership & Ministry

Andy is excited by seeing people who don’t know Jesus come to Salt and helping them connect in. He loves listening to and playing music, watching movies and taking his kids to the park. Andy and his wife Keris have 3 crazy boys.


Tim Canosa

Magnification & Mission

Tim grew up in Wollongong and now lives here with his wife Alita and 3 kids. Tim is passionate about a lot of things – but mostly European Football and helping see lots of people glorify Jesus more.


Ellen Condie

Kids Pastor

Ellen is one of the first members of Salt Church, having joined Salt within a few months of it launching. Ellen loves Jesus and seeing people come to know him. Having studied Dietetics at UOW and completed a ministry apprenticeship at Salt, Ellen joined our Staff team to help our kids grow to love Jesus more.


Adam de Rooy

Ministry Apprentice

Adam is a Wollongong local. Adam loves a good home-grown beehive (and has only been stung about 50 times!) but also loves helping people meet Jesus and grow to love him more. Adam is currently completing a ministry apprenticeship at Salt. He’s married to Nicole and they have 2 kids.



Ministry Apprentice

Josie is currently doing a Ministry Apprenticeship at Salt Church and easily drives the largest car on the staff team. Josie is a talented artist and loves sitting down with people with a hot drink and talking about Jesus.


Laura McClintock

Administration Manager

Laura loves writing a todo list almost as much as she loves ticking things off a newly written todo list. She joined the team to help with all the office admin stuff that no-one else is very good at. Laura loves Jesus and her attention to detail in pretty much everything is greatly appreciated. Laura is married to Jack and they have 2 kids.
