Planetshakers' mission is to "empower a generation to win a generation". This Christian youth movement began as an annual conference and grew into an international ministry and church. Thousands of people of different ages, backgrounds and nationalities from all over the globe gather together for the national Planetshakers Conference in Melbourne. The ministry also runs a Bible college with a number of campuses in Australia.
Russell and Sam Evans founded Planetshakers Ministries in 1997. Their vision is to impact and influence the communities throughout the nation. Russell and Sam are the senior pastors of Planetshakers City Church in Melbourne (Australia), which they founded in 2004.
