South East Campus
Pastor Joe Vatucicila has been a part of the Planetshakers family since 2007. Shortly after marrying, he and his wife Rachel responded to the call of God, relocating from Wellington, New Zealand to Melbourne, Australia, to attend Planetshakers College for one year. That year turned into a faith-filled adventure that led them to settle in Melbourne and raise a family — two beautiful sons, Judah and Canaan, who both share the passion and zeal of their parents.
Since joining Planetshakers Church, Joe and Rachel have served in various roles, predominantly in Youth and Creative Ministry areas, and are both gifted musicians. They now serve as campus pastors of the Planetshakers South East Campus—a rapidly growing, multicultural campus. Their leadership is dynamic and they are passionate about empowering people to live their best lives through intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, and by operating daily in the power of the Holy Spirit.
