Auckland Associate Staff

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek“ (Romans 1:16).

Shalom, talofa and warmest greetings in the name of Yeshua! My name is Rabena Tanielu. I am very privileged to be a part of the Lord’s work with TSCF. Student ministry on campus was pivotal to my faith journey at Otago and also here in Auckland for my husband. I truly hope I can be an effective steward and servant during my time, to reach and disciple students with the full saving gospel of Jesus Christ.

I am Samoan, born in New Zealand but raised in the stunning village of Salani in Samoa as the second youngest of 6 children. My husband Ronji and I returned to New Zealand in May 2017 after spending 2 years serving as self-funded missionaries in various countries overseas, including Nigeria, Israel, Brazil, Hong Kong. We are passionate about sound biblical doctrine, partnering with local churches, serving our persecuted brethren, understanding the Jewish context of our faith, evangelism and discipleship, and business as mission.

Thank you all for the support, generosity and prayers you give to this ministry. We continue to support TSCF as it prioritises the saving gospel message of Christ, that we are unashamed about our Christian worldview in today’s secular society, and that we work in projects overseas alongside the local brothers and sisters that glorify our God and extend His Kingdom!
