Meet Alan Au
Alan has been leading Captivate Presbyterian Church in North Ryde for the last 5 years. He’s married to Beatrice and they have three kids, JJ, Teddy and Harry.
Some little things that bring him joy are: deep frying, Brazilian jiu jitsu and pointlessly reorganising his desk. Bigger moments of overwhelming joy have been: marrying his crush from youth group, becoming a foster dad, and leading people to Jesus.
God used Philippians to transform Alan’s life as a young man and he’s praying with great anticipation for how God will work at KYCK in 2022.

Daniel is the youth pastor at Narrabeen Baptist Church where he has worked for the past 8 years. Prior to this, his work experience included high school teaching and flipping burgers at Maccas, but he soon realised his passion was sharing the good news of Jesus with young people.
Daniel is married to Mia, his lovely and patient wife, and they have a bubbly one year old daughter, Audrey. They live on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
For enjoyment Daniel sifts through denim at as many op-shops as he can. Other hobbies include running, the beach, learning French (oui oui), and scabbing free coffee from his brothers’ cafe.
