  • Julie Dreyer
    Worship, Drummer

    Julie was born and raised in Brantford, just south of Cambridge. She began attending Good News Church at 6 years of age when her parents became Christians. 

    Later, while attending a church in Brantford, Julie developed a passion for drumming and percussion. Her parents were surprised to discover that, at age 12, Julie had a natural ability to drum. They bought her an electric drum set to foster her gift for worship ministry (as her father is a worship leader).

    In 2011, Julie and her husband, Luke, started a youth ministry at Good News Church where they served as youth ministers until the birth of their second child in 2016. 

    She is now a mother of 3 beautiful children, and she feels blessed to be able to serve on the worship team with her husband Luke Dreyer.
