About

Hi, thanks for visiting the site.  I started the site back in 2007 and have enjoyed posting thoughts on here ever since.

I am married cross-culturally (US wife, English me), and we have five children. For more information on our family and ministry, please go to www.pouredout.org.

We moved back to the UK from the USA in 2004 to work full-time with Operation Mobilisation.  We continue to work under the umbrella of OM.  In 2011 we helped to launch Cor Deo.  This is a full-time mentored study and ministry training programme that runs for the first half of each year.  The small Cor Deo team study together, serve together and hopefully grow together.  We also run one-week Intensive courses.  Click here to find out more about Cor Deo.

In 2014 we had the privilege of being part of the team launching a new church in Chippenham.  This has reduced my availability for preaching in other churches on Sundays, but it has been so good to be part of something like this from the very beginning.  We pray that Trinity Chippenham will see people in this area coming to know and delight in our good God.

While Cor Deo and Trinity Chippenham take up the majority of the ministry schedule, I do enjoy other opportunities to serve the church.  For instance, since 2013 I have been leading the Bible Teacher’s Networks at the European Leadership Forum in Wisla, Poland.

Books

Other Stuff

Just in case you care about things like education, here is the short summary.  I got my undergrad at the University of the West of England in Bristol back in the 90’s.  I spent four great years at Multnomah Biblical Seminary, Portland, where I did both the MDiv and the MA in Biblical Studies.  Then I also did the Doctor of Ministry degree in homiletics at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and had Haddon Robinson as my mentor.  For the past few years I have continued to learn as I mentor alongside colleagues at Cor Deo.
