Our Pastors


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. In 1997, while attending a Hillsong conference in Auckland, God gave them a vision of all that the local church could and should be. 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.


Jvarn and Autumn Ingham run FUEL Youth – the youth programme at CauseWay. They met a few years ago at the mission organisation YWAM (Youth With A Mission) and married in July 2017.  Along with their roles as Youth Pastors, Jvarn works part-time for a local builder and is currently completing his building apprenticeship, and Autumn looks after social media for the church and serves in other areas  including worship and administration. Autumn is also completing her B.S. in Theology and Cultural Engagement online with Moody Bible Institute.

They are both passionate about cheering young people on and creating a place where they can belong, discover who they are, discover their purpose and fall in love with God.
