Colin and Anne Chitty are the Senior Pastors at CauseWay Church. They have lived in Mangawhai and been involved in both the community and the local church since they married.

They continued to serve in and encourage the church to pursue all that God had for them, taking up the role as senior leaders in the church until being inducted as Senior Pastors in 2005.
They are passionate about the local church, believing it is the hope of the world. They are also passionate about seeing people empowered and encouraged to be everything God has intended them to be.
