Associate Pastor (Families - Children & Youth, and Community Outreach): Michael Brew

Raised on a farm on the outskirts of Torquay, I have spent most of my life here on the Surfcoast. I have always been connected and involved in church and was introduce to God at a young age. Met Jesus as a teenager and committed to serving and following Him for the rest of my life. He has led me to serve the church and to make Him known to others.

I met my amazing wife Kath here at TCF. We have a joyful, adventurous, and kind daughter named Adley, and newborn son named Harry. We are excited to be back connected to this incredible church community. I’m looking forward to bringing my passions for discipleship and hospitality to our community as I aim to serve, encourage and empower you in through this Associate Pastor role.
