Married to Tracy and dad to Benjamin and Ceitidh (pronounced Katie). Dedicated to having Jesus at the centre of all that I am. Passionate about seeing the whole church informed and mobilised to flesh out Jesus in the reality of our post-Christendom United Kingdom. I spent 9 years leading Salvation Army churches in Glasgow, Bristol, Wick and Aberdeen with Tracy and now embarking on a new journey in Newcastle in a Methodist/URC church called Trinity in the Gosforth area of the city.
My formative spirituality is clearly Salvo, with a heart for the lost and a heart for the poor, but I'm equally fired up by Celtic spirtuality and love the richness and historicity of the Jewish roots of Christianity. I'm a strategic thinker, some would say 'deep', with an apostolic/evangelistic/prophetic type ministry in the main. My greatest joy is championing and empowering the ministry of others and I have a desire to see a viral organic church planting movement sweep through the UK. I have my 'thorn in the flesh' to keep me humble and entirely reliant on grace.
Apart from all that, I love the music of Ludvico Einaudi...he is better at playing it than I am, but I have a go. I have a love of VW campers and one of these days I'll have my own again!
