Second Year Manager
I am 41 years old and I have been married to my beautiful bride Joanna now for 20 years and we have 3 kids, Sam (16), Lachie (14) and my princess Hannah (12). I came across to BSSM from Australia with my family in 2011 and did 2 years of school and got hired as an RGP and have had the great pleasure of pastoring in the BSSM On Campus role for the last 9 years. I live to move the heart of God and to step into the intimate invitation He gave that we can abide with Him. I long for every brief and passing thought and action in my life on earth, to be an act of worship that becomes an eternal crown I throw at His feet in the next life in heaven. I long to see passionate, healthy, intimate believers become the beautiful bride that Jesus deserves and have given my life to raise and equip the body to become all she is called to be. I burn for revival and to see His Kingdom expressed and demonstrated here on earth and to play my part in raising up a hungry and intimate army who will pay any price to see Jesus get what He paid for.
