I am married to Cathy and we moved to Australia 15+ years ago and work with City Bible Forum, Third Space, Reel Dialogue, The Edge and Rouse Hill Bible Church.

Tell us about a ministry you love

We love all of our ministries and look forward to seeing how the Lord will work through us in the years to come. Reel Dialogue is the ministry that stands out and differentiates itself from most other works. Utilising film as a means of evangelism through reviews, articles, events and training.

Do you seek to have a daily 'quiet time'? If so, what does this time look like?

I have a daily quiet time every morning.

How do you read the Bible?

I read a portion of the OT, NT and select devotionals. Recently I have been reading through various biographies as a complement to the biblical content.

What practices have you found helpful for engaging with the Bible?

Writing out my prayers. Capturing key verses that stand out during the reading of the Bible. Currently reading the Bible chronologically.

What does your prayer life look like?

Prayer during devotions, throughout the day, with ministry partners and with family.

Do you make use of any catechisms, liturgies or pre-written prayers?

No... Being Baptist, this is not my tradition.

Do you journal?

I journal most days.

Do you fast?

Not regularly, but do see its value.

Do you memorise Scripture?

Not a strength of mine, but do encourage it.

What routines, habits or rules of life have you found helpful?

Daily reading, first thing in the morning... first fruits of my day.

Are there any other resources you would recommend?
