Yoshi started as the Senior Pastor of Wantirna early 2017. Coming from a background in IT, where he worked for Coles Myer, IBM and MYOB, Yoshi felt the calling to ministry and thus went from working with technology to working with people… and absolutely loves it!
He did his Masters in theological studies at the Andrews University Seminary in Michigan, USA, and had previously been senior pastor in the Central Coast. While he loves working with people of all ages, his passion is with the younger generation, having started out as a youth pastor in Kingscliff, NSW.
In his spare time, he still loves to tinker with technology (don’t ask him if Android or Apple is better), with basketball as his other passion. He also loves music and enjoys playing the piano and guitar when he has the time. His true love however is two-fold - the service of Him in the preaching of the gospel, and his beautiful wife Nadia.
