Location Melbourne, Australia
Introduction I've lived my whole life in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. I grew up on a 60 acre apple orchard and attended The Basin Primary School and Boronia High School. I left after Year 11 (aged 16) and worked on the family farm for one year then with the National Bank for 3 years before completing a BTh at Kingsley College. After a number of part-time pastoral positions I was involved in a church plant in Healesville and pastored there for 6 years. While I was there I completed a Master of Arts (Theology) at the Bible College of Victoria. I married Annette (McLauchlan) in 1993. We have three fantastic kids: Kate, Matthew and Thomas. I am currently Principal of Kingsley College and I'm completing a Doctor of Ministry as well as being a part of a new missional church plant called Mimos.
