David Torlach is married to Ruth (for 32 years) and they have 5 children (all married) and 9 grandchildren.
Initially trained in medicine, David worked as a medical doctor for 17 years. He trained in surgery, then worked in emergency medicine for 10 years, before the Lord called him to be a minister of the Word.
He completed pre-seminary training under the oversight of the Presbytery of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, including three years in the seminary of the Protestant Reformed Churches in America, in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
He was called and ordained into the pastoral ministry in 2011, and served for about five years in Winnaleah, Tasmania, before being called to his current pastorate here in Brisbane in late 2015. He loves the Reformed faith, which glorifies God and upholds our Lord Jesus, and the privilege of ministering to the sheep of Christ’s church.
In his spare time, he enjoys ocean-side walks with Ruth, and they love to visit their children and grandchildren in Tasmania when they can.
