Meet the pastoral team at Toronto church, Pr Grego Pillay and Godfrey Felix
Pr Grego Pillay is dedicated to living by example and encouraging men and women to realise their full potential in Christ.
His love for God is demonstrated through his passionate music, dynamic preaching and loving relationships.
He has years of experience in teaching and counseling, which enable him to reach others with humour, warmth, transparency and strength.
Pastor Grego is also a singer, song-writer, role model and mentor. He has released his debut album Never Let Go.
(Pr Pillay has a
BA in Theology from Andrews University (extension campus Helderberg College) and a Masters in Leadership and Management from Avondale College. He is currently pursuing a MPhil leading to a PhD in
Systematic theology via Avondale.)
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 recently joined the team at Toronto. He is currently a theology student at Avondale 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 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
