Barry & Joan Lubbe are Senior Pastors of Living Faith Church. Originally from Johannesburg, South Africa, they moved their family of three children to Amissville, VA in 1987 in response God’s call to plant Living Faith Church. Both Barry and Joan had been active in church since they were teenagers. They each ran successful businesses, and Barry operated the South African branch of Kenneth Copeland Ministries prior to moving to America. 

With a vision to see Northern Virginia saved, Barry brought the uncompromised Word of God to a region steeped in religion. Through the years, Living Faith has burgeoned into a gathering place for people of all ages and cultures, with ministries that offer hope and life to the community. 

Along with Tuesday evening ministry, Barry also teaches in the Ministry Training Center. In his free time, he enjoys golfing, movies, and painting (he’s a very talented artist!).

Joan led the Women’s Life ministry for many years and continues to hold an active role. She’s a dynamic minister who always offers hope and encouragement, building understanding on how to communicate with and experience God at a deeper, more intimate level. Joan enjoys spending time with her grandchildren and is an avid reader.

Gavin Lubbe is our lead Pastor and Administrator. Gavin was part of the initial planting of Living Faith before pursuing a successful career in professional advertising in South Africa. After several years, he returned to Living Faith for full-time ministry. His desire is for people to genuinely encounter God, experience Him in daily life, and come alive to their purpose, potential and gifting. All this enables people to supernaturally influence their world.

Gavin is the oldest child of Pastors Barry and Joan. He and his wife Sarah have an active life with their three young children, Colton, Carter, and Vivian. They also enjoy tending their gardens, and they’re huge fans of Downton Abbey (well, before it went off the air).

He held the position of Administrator and managed the Sound & Audio team for many years. Since 1995, he has overseen the finances as Ministry Treasurer.  With a deep heart for the supernatural and an amazing prophetic anointing, he has always held an intricate role in Prayer and Intercession for the ministry as well as teaching in the Training Center. 

Bill enjoys lounging on the lake with his wife, Lynda, and his kids, grandkids and great-grandkids. He’s also a record collector enthusiast with a deep appreciation for jazz.
