Who is Chris Rowney?

Chris Rowney served as the Senior Pastor of Torquay Christian Fellowship on the Surfcoast of Australia for more than 15 years until mid 2018 when he began a transition from the role of Lead Pastor for Teaching and Vision at TCF to create an opportunity to prepare a series of resources based around some of the key themes of his teaching ministry

Prior to that Chris, along with his wife Robyn, worked in the publishing industry, pioneering a digital prepress business in Canberra ACT.

Selling the business to pursue his calling to pastoral ministry, Chris lived and studied in the US in the late 90s, and has since completed postgraduate studies in Theology in Australia with a research focus on how beliefs about Jesus as human and divine shape the way people practice their faith.
