Mel Fairweather

- Passion Kids Director

Kia ora tatou! I'm Grace's resident Canadian, married to a Kiwi called Ben. We have two primary-school girls, with whom I share an interest in tap dancing and scrap booking (You can also catch me playing the odd PS4 game with the family!).

Members of Beach Campus since mid 2010, my family continues to encourage me in my role as kids pastor. My teaching background has prepared me well to plan and implement curriculum for our Passion Kids preschoolers and primary children. On Sundays you'll find me zipping around Beach Campus, working with some awesome kids and PK leaders.

I was raised with the knowledge and love of Jesus, so I know how important it is for seeds to be planted and watered in young people's hearts. 70-80% of decisions for Christ are made between ages 4-14, so I'm passionate about being part of seeing this window of opportunity filled with real experiences of a relationship with Jesus!
