I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, adopted by a beautiful family. I heard the gospel for the first time when I was 15 years old and was immediately struck by the graciousness of our God to adopt me into His heavenly family.
My youth pastor played a signficant role in supporting me through my parents divorce and I became passionate about supporting others to experience the same kind of loving discipleship and care. I’d love to say that I served the Lord faithfully from that time onwards but that is not my testimony. God has been so gracious to hold me to himself even through a number of years of prodigal living.
I most recently graduated from Ridley College with a Masters of Ministry (2020) and Flinders University with a Masters of Social Work (2014). Planting CityLight East has been a sanctifying joy and an honour to call our community to embrace Jesus as their greatest treasure.
I’m married to Rebekah, and have 3 sons Jack, Tommy and Archie. I love date nights, wrestling my boys and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. In the next few years, I’d love to not always be injured, grow a luscious mane of hair, and celebrate affordable petrol prices.
