This is a personal blog. I am a Christian husband and dad. I have served in independent Churches in various Pastoral & Teaching roles since 1989. In 1997-98 I lived in East Africa (based in Kenya) starting medical clinics, children’s nursery schools and training, coaching and mentoring local pastors and Christian workers. I have also worked as a Communications Solutions Consultant (Telco related Project Management, Contract Management & Business Analysis etc). I am presently involved in research and study towards post-graduate qualifications to qualify to write and teach for Seminary (i.e. University level) students.
Because it is a personal blog the content and emphasis varies. It has everything from trivial fun to detailed bible related topics. Some of the recurrent ideas I am passionate about include:
- care and protection of at-risk children through education, advocacy, sponsorship, domestic and international adoption
- raising awareness of, supporting & promoting social justice locally and globally
- local Church leadership, pastoral issues and culture
There have been many Christians in history that have explained or clarified key teachings of the Bible. Today, we stand on the shoulders of those who have fought the battles for truth before us. So it’s a wise and humble thing to learn from them. As a starting point, I fully affirm the NSW & ACT Baptist Churches Statement of Faith and that of the Queensland Baptists.
Thanks for visiting!
