Michael Drake

Auckland Associate Staff

I was born in Christchurch (Ngai Tahu), became a Christian in my teenage years in Hamilton, and trained as a teacher at Auckland Teachers College and Auckland University. I enjoyed years of teaching in state and Christian schools. Most of my working life has been in Christian schools and church planting ministries. My greatest passion is making Christ known and the Bible understood in a way that gives vitality to everything students do. I currently work mainly in mentoring students and leaders across the Auckland uni campuses.

I was first part of TSCF as President of the Auckland Teachers College EU in 1966. My wife Priscilla and I have enjoyed nurturing four children into adulthood, three of whom are married and have three children each. Our daughter Robyn also works with TSCF in Auckland.

I also take lots of photos, do a bit of gardening and collect carnivorous plants.
