Rebekah formally joined the team in March 2020 (having volunteered for many years) and currently leads the music and production ministries at The Orchard Church.
Married to Blair they are committed to raising three kids and a big boofy dog! Rebekah was raised in a vibrant Christian family where evangelism was at the core of everything and the motto was simple: ‘Love God and love people.’
Family life consisted of living at Kiwi Ranch in Rotorua until she was 13, then a few moves around the country as they joined various church planting teams as a family. Eventually they ended up in Wellington where she met her wonderful husband Blair and they got married a couple of years later.
While in Wellington Rebekah studied music at Massey University majoring in performance jazz on the piano. She studied at Bible College New Zealand through an Internship Diploma and then she ran a business giving private piano tuition. All the while enjoying volunteering in music ministries wherever the opportunity arose. Eventually the couple moved north to sunny Te Puke, deciding to call it home and start their family; Norah, Joseph and Hugo.
Aside from making music, you’ll usually find Bex either with her extended family, at the piano or in the garden (covered in dirt, kids somewhere around, doing the same!).
