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
He was born in the 60s and grew up in a rural city in NSW Australia, feeling called to ministry as a teenager, he began pastoral ministry in Torquay, VIC, in 2003. 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.
Chris will read anything put in front of him, and has a love of photography, word puzzles/games, history and science, and leading and listening to live worship
