“I dream of a time when all Christians sense the heartbeat to ‘go’ – to share the good news of God’s reign, wherever they are!”

My main passions in life are Jesus, burritos, and puppies (though not all equally).

I was 17 years old when I felt like God opened my eyes to what the church could really be. I was living in America and I watched with heartache how the message of Christ was being represented in the media. I knew the church could be a life-giving place and God grew a passion in me to help make that happen.

That’s why I decided to go into full-time ministry: to see people come alive to the message of Christ. I’m an Australian, Canadian and American citizen, but it doesn’t matter where I live… I want everyone to experience the message of Jesus Christ.

I’ve worked with the marginalised in Mexico, served Indigenous communities in Australia, and helped struggling families in my neighbourhood.  To me, everyone can be radically transformed by the gospel! I’m blessed because my wife Bec is wired the same way. She has a heart for those living on the margins, and as a nurse, she cares for those who are often overlooked.

My dream is to see all Christians sense the heartbeat to “go” – to share and live out the good news of God’s reign wherever they are! When it comes to mission, you don’t need to be professional or perfect – you just need to follow Jesus with open-handed invitation.

I’ve studied psychology (BA, WWU) and theology (MSC, Regent College), so you’d think I should have some intellectual ambition in life.  But really, my dream is to go on a hike with Bear Grylls and beat Hugh Jackman at an arm wrestling contest… but I would settle for a chat over coffee with either.
