It’s been my privilege to have served as minister of our church since 1997, in partnership with Cassie.
I grew up in a non-Christian family. In 1979, I met a man who spoke to me about God. I didn’t need too much convincing that the world, and my life wasn’t the way God intended it to be. It was stunning to hear that God’s Son Jesus had died to pay for all my sin, and that forgiveness was now on offer. It was an offer I couldn’t refuse.
Cassie became a Christian during her teenage years growing up in Kuala Lumpur. For her, it started with a fascination about a curious Western festival called Christmas. Her curiosity led to some unexpected answers about a God who loves us so much that He sent His Son into our world. The message of forgiveness and peace with God was compelling. Cassie came to Australia as an overseas student in 1983 to study fashion technology and commercial needlecraft.
My formative years as a Christian were during my university student days. I trained for ministry at Moore Theological College and the Presbyterian Theological Centre in Sydney (now Christ College).
Cassie and I have two adult children, Andrew and Elissa. Our passion is to share the gospel, teach the Bible, and help others to honour God in their lives.
