New Zealand Team


Karen and Kelvyn 305x280pxKelvyn & Karen Watkins

Kelvyn and Karen Watkins have been part of the Fatherheart team in Taupo since 2006. They love to be part of what Father is doing in their own lives and the lives of others, both in New Zealand and in the nations. Kelvyn and Karen have been Christians for most of their lives; in previous years they have pioneered new cell groups in the local church before becoming part of YWAM Family Ministries in 2000.

They greatly enjoy their family of five married children and eighteen grandchildren, and love to open their home for the encouragement of others. They facilitate a Fatherheart meeting every Tuesday evening in Taupo and love sharing the ever deepening revelation that Father is bringing to His sons and daughters.



Stephen was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and lived there until 2009, when he moved to New Zealand. He now lives in Taupo with his wife Becky who is from the Bay of Plenty region of New Zealand. They have two children, Jacob (born in 2011) and Jessie (born in 2013).

In 2007, Stephen had a major crisis of faith and burned out in what he believed was a mature and radical Christianity. He came to the Inheriting the Nations retreat in New Zealand in 2008 and met James and Denise Jordan. What he heard and experienced profoundly altered his understanding of Christianity and how he lived his life.

Stephen returned to the INS as a staff member in 2009, and has been with the Fatherheart Ministries team in Taupo since 2010, working closely with James and Denise Jordan and Mark Head. He was the ghostwriter for James and Denise Jordan’s books. Stephen has also written books expanding this revelation of the Father’s love and sonship. His first book, Primal Hope: Finding Confidence Beyond Religion was released in 2016. His book John: A Prophetic Revelation was published in 2017.

Kevin and Lynda have been part of Fatherheart Ministries since 2004. They have spoken and ministered at seminars, retreats, schools and churches for many years and have seen many come into a deep healing in the area of love deficits and the revelation of God as Father.

Kevin’s background is in water and wastewater treatment. He has successfully led large teams in this field and managed multi-million dollar budgets and assets.  Lynda has had many years of nursing experience working in emergency and theatre. Through their life experiences, work and personal life, they have developed a strong ability to share from their hearts, opening the way for many to receive this revelation for themselves.

Kevin completed a two year Bible college course in his early twenties and they have been involved for many years in local church leadership. Kevin and Lynda lead and encourage on the journey into Sonship and help others experience the reality that Father God is loving each one of us right now.



Marie Campbell

Greetings dear friends,
My name is Marie Campbell, mother of five and grandmother of three. My background  training lies in teaching, counselling and social work, with a Missions heart. My involvement with Fatherheart Ministries since the beginning of 2007, has been with the ministry team at both A  & B Schools in New Zealand, as well as once in Malaysia and Singapore. Here in Taupo I manage the registrations for those attending the schools. I simply love giving a welcome hug to the people of God, from around the nations, who desire to journey deeper into the heart of Father God. Then, in the presence of the Holy Spirit, together combined with anointed teaching, seeing this become reality.
I have also enjoyed the speaking opportunities at weekend seminars in various locations in New Zealand. Further, I have helped staff the three month Inheriting the Nations Schools on three occasions, as well as assisting with the organisation of the annual one month Gatherings in Taupo, over the past five years.

My life as a believer has significantly changed as the revelation of Father's love for me as His beloved daughter, continues to release me into His fullness of Life, freedom, joy, rest, comfort and peace; an experience foreign to my many years of religious,  servant-hearted Christianity. I wholeheartedly believe I have stepped into my destiny during these golden years, with the hope of so much more to come. I invite and encourage you to participate with us on this rich, life changing journey into the heart of the Father.
