Mon is lead pastor here at Living Grace Dianella. Mon’s favourite thing is fostering the amazing capacities of people. She spends half her time as a lecturer at Morling College and providing supervision and training for ministers and supervisors through The Anchorage Collective. For fun she is now completing her Doctor of Ministry. For her real fun she loves a good book, holidaying with Michael and playing with her 5 grandsons.
Jeanette loves connecting with people through sharing of stories, meaningful relationships, and lots of fun. She is passionate about helping people connect with Jesus and live life to its full potential. Jeanette is a very proud mother and grandmother, and enjoys camping with family and friends, and experiencing more of our beautiful world through travel. She is part of the ministry team, and a board member of Living Grace Dianella.
Scott Puzey and his wife Kerry have been a part of Living Grace Dianella since 2017 and members thereafter. They are the proud parents of Matthew and Sarah.

Rohan is an Associate Pastor at Living Grace Dianella. He is married to Melissa and has two young children. On Sundays he is often involved with the kids ministry, but also preaches, and sometimes joins the music team on his double bass. Rohan is a reformed gamer who relapses occasionally, and sometimes finds time for ambitious undertakings like learning ancient languages, trying to make electronic music, playing various instruments, or juggling.
Preacher and Worship Leader
Michael is Dean of Campus and has taught Christian Thought and History at Morling College in Perth since 2010. He is married to Monica and is a proud father and grandfather of incredibly wonderful kids. He enjoys being part of the preaching and worship teams at Living Grace. He likes food (a little too much!), cycling, reading, current affairs, and would like to travel some more—maybe Germany, Scotland, Israel, a COVID-free cruise…
Ken has been a Christian for 50 plus years and attended several churches during that time. He is currently serving on the church board and also assists in the church maintenance and Sunday morning setup.
His interests include fishing and crabbing, golf and making or repairing items for his children and grandchildren. He also has a caravan and hopes to travel extensively over the next five years.
One day a week he looks after his grandchild and soon it will be a second day for the next grandchild.
Grant is a loud, balding older man who loves to chat. When he and his wife Sheryl returned from 18 months in UK/Europe in 1978 they decided to come to Dianella to worship because of Christian friends already here.
Grant started life in Bunbury and has been associated with Churches of Christ since attending their Sunday School from the age of four. Grant made an adult decision to follow Jesus at the age of twelve. Grant has served God as an elder, Board member, lay preacher and singer.
Music has always been important to Grant. When he came to Perth to attend University, he formed a Christian rock group that for five years played at churches and ‘coffee house ministry venues’. Grant is part of our worship team.
Ray Tinetti is married to Marie. They have five children and six grandchildren between them. He has been involved with this church since 1968 when his family moved into Dianella. (Dianella Plaza was a sign on a patch of bush then.) He has been on the board, off and on, since the 70s. He was a high school science teacher for 40 years and has recently retired. Hobbies include photography, especially birds and flowers; gardening and fishing (both badly).

He currently serves on the board as treasurer, and is also an elder of the church.
