Maria Mason

Maria is a cultural architect, she lives to see the Church become a powerful community, that reveals the glory of heaven and the heart of the Father. Together with her husband Phil, Maria pioneered a spiritual community in 1998 called Tribe-Byron Bay (formerly New Earth Tribe). Phil and Maria are the senior leaders, but now have an amazing team of pastoral leaders whom they serve with.

They started this fledgling work in their living room with seven people in Sunrise Beach, Byron Bay. Their aim was to build not just a church, but a community of people, who were deeply invested in each other and in changing the world. In those days, they ran a soup kitchen and delivered bread to local families. Maria also invested much of her time as an intercessor and worshiper, starting local prayer initiatives and building up a culture of worship and encounter. Out of these early seasons, the Father developed in her, a passion for breakthrough so that the heart’s of people can encounter God’s glory.

In the last 18 years, she has lead the church along side of Phil. She speaks around Australia and in other nations, on the subjects of church culture, relationships, leadership, prophetic ministry, creativity, worship, community and revival.
