Role: Associate Minister
Background: I studied design at Swinburne, and worked at Walt Disney Australia before studying at Moore and Ridley College.
Family: Rene is married to Louisa and they have three kids.
Passionate about: I’m passionate about teaching the Bible and encouraging others in the faith, and helping Christian brothers and sisters grow in their gifts by serving others in the church community.
Hobbies: I’m into running, watching movies and playing tabletop games with my kids. I also write and draw comic books about goblins and dragons.
I grew up in a Christian home but I had a crisis of faith in my early 20s, which by the grace of God ended up strengthening my faith and took me on the path to full-time ministry. I was mentored by a friend who met with me to read the Bible and pray. This was so encouraging and life changing, that I wanted to spend my life encouraging others through different ministries: one-to-one ministry, leading bible studies, making short Bible cartoons, preaching the word. I’m continuously amazed at the way God’s revelation of himself through the scriptures continues to speak to us today.
I hope that through my ministry in Sundays@6, I will be able to strengthen, encourage and equip servant-hearted disciples for Jesus, who will be able to serve others.
