Ben Fitzgerald is a passionate lover of Jesus and the senior leader of Awakening Europe, a movement that champions the Gospel across Europe through stadium events, city-wide outreaches, and training schools. Originally from Melbourne, Australia, Ben met Jesus in an encounter that deeply changed him in 2002 whilst he was dealing drugs. Since then Ben has lived passionately about one thing – showing the world Jesus in his everyday life and taking the good news of the Kingdom to the nations.
In 2009, Ben moved to Redding, California to attend Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry (BSSM). After graduating, he then served on staff as a Pastor at Bethel Church for several years. He currently lives in Germany leading the Awakening Team and spends much of his time traveling extensively – both in Europe and across the world.
Galatians 5:1 says “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.” In line with that mission, Ben loves to equip people to live in God’s fullness of freedom and identity. He has a deep conviction that the future of nations will be transformed by radical believers living free and proclaiming Jesus boldly.
Brandon was born in the Cajun lands of Louisiana and raised by parents who were committed to serving God and the local church. Upon earning a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Brandon joined Youth With A Mission, eventually serving on the mission fields of Calcutta, India, and Capetown, South Africa. Not long after, Brandon obtained his Master of Divinity from Oral Roberts University, and met—and married—his best friend Octavia. Since their nuptials, the two have labored side by side in discipling and mentoring both the young and old within the church and in their home.
Brandon has spent well over a decade in full-time ministry, having served at three different churches with a variety of roles ranging from youth pastor to interim director. Sensing a call from God in late 2018, they moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado to plant Zeal Church in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020. In two years, the church has ballooned to over 1,300 people in weekly attendance and is a local expression of a multicultural and multiethnic church within the body of Christ.
Besides pastoring Zeal, Brandon is a sought after communicator who travels throughout the United States and overseas to train, equip, and inspire fellow Christians and pastors. Employing a broad variety of skill sets ranging from music, public speaking, and theatrical gifts, Brandon zealously articulates God’s Word in a transformational way that cuts to the core of his audience and pierces their heart.
However, Brandon’s highest priority is to his wife, Octavia, and their four (yes, four!) children, Riyan, Norah, King, and Niyah. In his free time, Brandon enjoys beating his body and making it his slave at local Crossfit gyms.
Ten years ago, Harry underwent a radical baptism in the Holy Spirit. In that moment, what felt like fire washed over him, imparting purpose, empowerment, purity, vision, and hunger. Following that experience, Harry resigned from his radio job and transitioned into full-time ministry.
Harry believes that the present is the opportune moment for the manifestation of God’s kingdom on earth, right here and now. He is deeply passionate about fostering creativity, empowerment, and witnessing individuals fully embrace their God-given purposes. His ultimate desire is to witness the salvation of the lost and to see people, both young and old, filled with the power of the Holy Spirit.
With a diverse background in ministry spanning Kids, Youth, Young Adults, and Adults across Australasia, Harry is enthusiastic about the ongoing work of God within his church. Based in Auckland, New Zealand, Harry is affiliated with Passion AKL, his home church. He expresses gratitude for his wonderful wife, Annaliese, and enjoys indulging in copious amounts of coffee.
