Our Leadership

Grace & Stu Duxfield

Corps Planting Officers

The Salvation Army Rolleston is led by Grace and Stuart Duxfield (our Corps Planting Officers aka. Pastors or Ministers), who are supported by our leadership team. 

Grace and Stu are from Wellington. After a number of years ‘Doing Ministry’ together alongside other work, they felt called to full-time ministry in the form of Salvation Army officership. They have been married 10 years, and have a 6-year-old son Jesse to keep them on their toes!


As part of their training, they both completed their Diploma in Biblical Studies, their Diploma in Biblical Studies (Leadership), and their Certificate of Salvation Army Officer Training; and they are currently both finishing up their Bachelor of Theology. They were commissioned ‘Lieutenants’ and ordained in 2018.
