At the age of 17, he was invited to a surf event put on by Christian Surfers where he met God, got saved, and had his life changed forever. With a growing passion for God, Jurgen enrolled at Hillsong Bible College where he attended for 2 years. After finishing college, he left beautiful Sydney to move to South Auckland, New Zealand to help start a Hillsong church plant.

In the fall of 2004, Pastor Phil approached Jurgen and Leanne about starting a church in San Diego, California. Having never even been to San Diego, they both were hesitant about moving but it didn't take long before God confirmed the move. In the summer of 2005, Jurgen and Leanne and their three boys packed up all their belongings and moved to San Diego. On August 20th, 2005, C3 San Diego had its first service and an attendance of 50 people. In 2008, after many years of wanting a girl to add to the family, Jurgen and Leanne welcomed beautiful baby Zoe into the Matthesius clan. In 2011 the first permanent C3 San Diego location was built in the Carlsbad area of San Diego. C3 San Diego, now called Awaken Church, has 5 campuses across San Diego & Salt Lake City, Utah, and growing. With the journey in San Diego just starting, Jurgen and Leanne are confident in knowing that these days are only the beginnings of the amazing things that God wants to do in San Diego!
