Peter has been in pastoral ministry for over 25 years. In that time he has planted two churches with his wife Lyn. He has also facilitated the planting of seven other churches. Increasingly Peter has found himself being called to pastor other pastors. Drawing upon his experiences with the Lord during his own walk, Peter has been able to enable others to experience revelation and freedom by learning how to lead from who they are in Christ.
Peter is a gifted communicator whose greatest joy and privilege is to watch people right across the body of Christ rising up, stepping into their identities and demonstrating the Father's love in remarkable ways.
Today, he and Lyn lead Stairway Church in Melbourne, have three married children and seven grandchildren.
Extract of Foreword to "I Am: Blueprint to Humanity" (Unabridged Version) by Peter McHugh:
Dave Hernandez’s book “I AM: The Blueprint of Humanity”, is astonishing and influential in its capacity to empower followers of Jesus to live in the fullness of all Jesus became for us and in us. Through an intriguing ‘story telling’ style Dave carries his readers into a concise yet accurate presentation of what, after numerous times of reading the scriptures, can still appear to be complex and disjointed truths. Truths that help believers in Jesus begin to see and comprehend the extraordinary lengths the trinitarian God took through love to help restore people into a full and dynamic relationship of being in their family with all the privileges and opportunities of being a son.
In “I AM”, Dave Hernandez finds himself being joined to many revelatory authors that the Holy Spirit is raising up in this hour to restore New Testament truths that were lost to religion. Truths that explore the dead works of being “sin conscious” and release the life giving realities of being “son conscious” (Romans 6:11). As the reader takes time to digest and meditate in the truths of “I AM” they will find breakthrough from bondage, a free flow of the rivers of living water that are banked up in their inner being, and overwhelming joy in the new creation realities they will be able to live in.
