Born in London in 1962, I came to Australia as a boy with my family in 1974 and came to an adult profession of faith in Christ as saviour and lord, in my mid-teens. I studied at Flinders and Adelaide Universities, obtaining a Degree in Theology and a Diploma of Education. I and my wife Debra have three adult children. I have fellowshipped at Lighthouse Community Church since 1982 and became an elder in 2015. I am in full-time ministry with FamilyVoice Australia which seeks to commend wisdom for community leadership and to encourage Christian people as salt and light. I also help run a Christian School in Western Kenya which provides a free high-quality education for impoverished children.
