Pr Pillay is happily married to Melanie, a Medical Doctor, who is passionate about her work and Grego's ministry.
Together they have two children, Jehiel (JJ) and Abigail.
Jacob Ellis has joined the team at Toronto. He is currently a theology student at Avondale University College but is keen to become involved in local church life.
Jacob comes from Mt Gambier, although he was born in Adelaide. He loves soccer and was an A grade player and coach before moving to NSW. He completed a Cert 3 in Outdoor Sport and Recreation in 2018, while at the same time teaching music and sport at a primary school.
"I want to do ministry because I have a deep desire for wanting people to experience Jesus," says Jacob. "I don't want people to have a temporary idea of who they think God is, which fails. I want people to truly know who He says He is based on His Word."
Moe Siaki was born and raised in Samoa and was baptised as an Adventist when he was 17 years old. Moe and his wife Florence moved to New Zealand in 2010 and attended the Papakura Samoan SDA Church Plant. This experience inspired him to apply to do a theology course at Avondale University College and he is currently completing the Graduate Diploma in Ministry and theology.
Moe has a passion to be a faithful follower of Jesus and imitate His compassion for people and His desire to save souls for His father's Kingdom.
Moe and Florence have three children: Jackulance, Jackulynn and Lucygagu.
Originally from Fiji I moved to Australia from New Zealand in 2018 with my wife Michelle and our children TJ and Alma to study Ministry and Theology at Avondale University College.
When I am not studying or spending time much loved time with my family I am enjoying my new found hobby of scuba diving which I love.
I love meeting new people, helping them if I can and being able to share God's love with them.
