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 six 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 training ministry that seeks to multiply ministry that shares God’s heart. We offer short courses called Intensives. 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. I also teach Bible and preaching with Union School of Theology.
I was asked to contribute a large proportion of the articles on preaching preparation for the Ministry Essentials Study Bible (Hendrickson, 2014). The Bible is going to be available in several languages. If you are in North America, feel free to click on the image here and order a copy via the link. (Disclosure, any orders from Christianbook.com made using this link result in a small percentage coming to our ministry support fund.)
My first book, Pleased to Dwell: A Biblical Introduction to the Incarnation (Christian Focus Publications) came out in 2014. This is an easy-to-read cover-to-cover introduction to the wonder of God’s Son becoming one of us!
Lost in Wonder: A Biblical Introduction to God’s Great Marriage (Christian Focus Publications) came out in 2016. This is an easy-to-read cover-to-cover introduction to the wonder of God’s Son becoming one with us!
Foundations: Four Big Questions We Should Be Asking But Typically Don’t (Christian Focus Publications) was released in 2015. This short book will give you four questions that might just revolutionise how you read the Bible and the culture around you.
These books of undated devotions from 10Publishing offer a daily walk through Galatians and John’s Letters. They were published in 2015 and 2017 respectively.
In 2020, 10Publishing released The Little Him Book: Looking at the Jesus Who Makes Our Hearts Sing. It is a little book, and it is all about him! 10 short chapters introducing the wonderful subject of Jesus himself – good for someone new to Christianity, or someone who has enjoyed Jesus for years!
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.
