Tshepi serves as the Ministry Strategist at True North Church. She grew up in the church and gave her life to the Lord when she was 15. She has been involved in various ministries in the church, including being a full-time youth worker for 6 years. 


She considers herself a living testimony of the ongoing work of a restorative God and as such has deep compassion and a heart for people to know Him as a Healer, and Redeemer. To this end, she spent many years studying how people think and behave and as such, is a qualified Registered Counsellor. This has allowed her to be a part of some unique work in the NGO sphere working with families of children with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses. 


She’s a home body at heart and enjoys singing, reading, playing with her niece and spending quality time with friends, family and herself.
