I'm a Christian and a family man who has spent the last 20 years working primarily in Information Technology, most recently for Microsoft in New Zealand. In 2010 I left my career in IT in order to train for pastoral ministry.
I recently finished studying toward a Bachelor of the Arts in Biblical Counseling at the Masters College. I am now studying at the Masters Seminary toward a Master of Divinity.
When I've completed this my family and I expect to return to New Zealand in order to work to build the church. At this stage we don't have a set location or destination, but we appreciate your prayers.
You can keep up to date with what I'm learning by following my posts below.
We welcome your prayer and support!
