Associate Community Care Director
Hi, my name is Mieke Brehler, also known online as mihric. I grew up in church, and volunteered here and there, but until a few years ago, I never thought I’d be as involved as I am now.
I was born in the Netherlands as the youngest of 8 children. Most of us moved to Ontario, Canada when I was 7 years old, but I went back to the Netherlands when I was 16. At the time, I wasn't sure about whether I'd stay or go back to Canada when I finished school. Though before my time there was up, I met Arno, also known as mahric, got married, and stayed. We have 3 wonderful children, Stefan, Lydia and Carina, of whom Stefan is still at home. Arno and I are both gamers, and that's rubbed off on the kids to varying degrees.
We found Pastor Souzy and GodSquad Church through an interview on KLove in February 2017 and it really intrigued us because of our background as gamers. We started following Souzy’s streams, and in November of that year, I became a mod for his channel. Around that time my role as a stay-at-home mom started to change since our youngest was almost finished with school, and I was searching for what my next season in life would be. I had started an online course for ministry, mainly for my own education, and in 2019 I was asked to join the Community Care team. Mahric and I even decided to become partners of GSC after much prayer and many discussions. This also led me to feel called to do more in ministry and, when I finish my studies, potentially become a pastor. I love my work for GSC and can’t wait to see what God has in store for the church and everyone involved.
