Meet our team

Grant Hendry – Senior Pastor

Grant has been Senior Pastor of NBBC since early 2012, after 14 years of pastoral ministry in beautiful Busselton. Prior to that, he thoroughly enjoyed working as a pharmacist. Grant and his wife Maree have three teenage children, Ashlynne, Caleb & Breanna. In the rare moments of spare time, Grant loves creating things in his shed, and going on 4WD camping holidays. Grant is convinced that the life message of Jesus lives on through the local church, and that there is no situation, life, family or city that God can’t restore and renew. Grant sees his role as being a ‘leader of leaders’ to equip, encouraging and release others into ministry to grow God’s kingdom in the northern suburbs of Perth and to the ends of the earth.

Brad Vigus – Pastor for Sunday@6 Congregation

Brad started working at North Beach in mid-2016. Before joining the NBBC team Brad has served in ministry at Curtin University with the students in the AFES Christian Union, and was also pastor at Dalkeith Baptist Church. Brad enjoys opening the Bible with people and helping them to consider Jesus and His gospel. Brad is married to Shona and has three daughters and enjoys time with the family playing games or enjoying a pizza and movie night together. For Brad a nice day off is a mixture of exercise (running or swimming), along with music and coffee.

Alan Raven – Pastor for Training and Discipleship

Alan and his wife Sonja became part of the NBBC family in mid 2007. God has since blessed them with two lovely daughters. After about 14 years of working as a Civil Engineer, the Lord led Alan to leave Engineering in order to dedicate his life to teaching God’s Word. His passion is to encourage people to follow Jesus and to train them to love, live, declare, and defend the Word.

Bruce Polmear – Pastor for Youth and Young Adults

Bruce began his role as pastor for youth and young adults at NBBC in 2012. Bruce has a passion for understanding and making known the Word of God so that people come to faith in Jesus Christ and grow as Christ’s disciples. It is his hope and prayer that the Lord will produce lasting fruit through partnering with others in gospel work among the youth and young adults at North Beach. Bruce is married to Kylie who is a great support to him and full-time mum of their precious twin sons, Samuel and Micah and beautiful daughter Luella.

Merv Hodge – Pastor for Church Community

Bruce Miller – Pastor for Pastoral Care (2½ Days)

Bruce has been engaged in pastoral ministry for over 20 years, in both NSW and W.A. churches. He has 4 adult children and a growing number of grandies. His wife Carolyn enjoys the mix of school-teaching and pastoral work as time allows. On the church’s Pastoral Care team Bruce loves to sit down with people, hear their stories, and encourage others in their spiritual growth. Sharing from God’s Word, whether with the few, or the many, is always a privilege and a delight. Spare time is spent gardening, puzzle-ing, or playing (not nearly enough!) golf.

Kaye Tranter – Office Administrator

Kaye is the mother of three wonderful adult children and their lovely spouses, granny to an ever growing number of grandies and grand-dogs. She has always loved being a ‘mum’ and finds wearing the hat of being a ‘granny’ the best ever. Kaye has loved being a part of the NBBC family for the past 20+ years, learning lots along the way. Kaye is practically part of the furniture in the office, saying she was ‘terrified to begin with but in reality finds it a real blessing, privilege and joy to be in this God given role, working alongside this great team, getting to know people and seeing how God takes them along their journey’. She enjoys a good movie and loves watching basketball (especially if she knows any of the players)!

Michelle Meyer – Publishing & Communications (2 Days)

Michelle started off her journey in life in South Africa and shook off her thick accent after 10 years living in New Zealand. Now in sunny Perth enjoying the blessing of her role here at NBBC. This came about from volunteering at Kings Club in 2016 when her walk with the Lord began. Michelle is also involved as a helper in the Juniors Section of NBBC Boys Brigade, where she met her husband Sean. In her moments of free time, she thoroughly enjoys writing, crafting and playing games.
