    About me

    I'm now a 36 year old that came to know Jesus only a few years ago, but I truly believe that Jesus died for our sins and we now have the hope of salvation and the opportunity to live along side him forever in his kingdom. I want to pass that message along to as many people as possible.

    About my Apprenticeship

    Well after the first six months (A quarter of my apprenticeship is done already!) I have come to realize that a life in ministry is a busy, challenging and yet so rewarding!. I have spent a lot of my time doing kids ministries and I honestly never thought I would love it as much as I have. Being involved within our Friday Kids club, Teaching scripture and doing Sunday kids church at Fresh Start Church has been so rewarding. I get to watch as the kids learn more about who Jesus is and what it means to be a follower of him. I am thankful that I get to lead such a energetic and encouraging growth group (bible study). My 1 to 1's are so rewarding, you can never underestimate the importance of simply reading the bible with another Christian. If don't regularly do this I would encourage you to do so, you won't regret it. My chaplaincy role within the rugby club has been slow and hard going. I've resorted to pulling on the boots when the club has been short of players to show that I am committed to the club. I am involved in many other areas within the church as well as I'm committed to two gatherings at this point (fresh start church and night church) and by Sunday evening I am buggered, yet also encouraged by the people within the church. I am thankful for all the people that are invested in my ministry work and pray that together we can grow Gods Kingdom!.

    Prayer Points

    That I speak the truth of the gospel. That I can help people grow in their faith. That I use my time productively.That my character represents someone who is trying to be more christ like.Pray that God would equip me so I can share the message of salvation to a world of non-believers. That I would be able to help my non-Christian family come to know Jesus and the wonderful thing he has done for us.That all the ministries within our church (APC) would help to grow followers of Jesus. That I can stay energetic and enthusiastic as I am involved with two churches and several ministries within those churches.
