I grew up in Tauranga under the wonderful direction of my parents who were pastors of a Brethren church. I was always challenged on issues of faith, and God seemed to reveal Himself in different ways throughout my childhood. When I was about 11, I was at camp at Totara Springs and heard a message from an Australian Worship Leader that led me to make a decision to follow Christ. God eventually led me into ministry as the Worship Pastor at The Street City Church in Wellington. This allowed me to experience and test what worship really is.
My passion is to see church leaders around NZ equipped to lead God's people in true, Spirit-filled worship, so in 2012 I was excited to launch the School of Worship Leading.
I am married to the wonderful Mary, and we have two awesome sons named Reuben and Benjamin and a beautiful daughter, Abigail.
