Education: 3 years secondary - couldn’t wait to leave school - am a crazy keen sportsman so wanted to play sport all the time.
Comment to those looking at my sermons: As I said I’m a work in progress.
I’m having trouble writing a lot of this stuff down as I tend to preach not word for word but with an outline and led by the Holy Spirit.
Sermon or series that made a difference: Love Chuck Swindoll’s preaching - he has been a huge influence on my life as well a Derek Prince
Family: I am married to a wonderful woman of God Angela and we have 5 children and 6 grandchildren with one more on the way - due November 05. Two daughters live in Australia and three boys in New Zealand. Our oldest ( daughter is 33 ) youngest son (16) he is still at home and in his first year of a Batchelor of Computer Systems degree course at a local polytechnic.
What my parents think of my sermons: Both parents dead.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She like the good ones and tells me straight about the bad ones.
I do preach bad ones - I’m a work in progress - praise God.
Best advice given to me about preaching: Be real and preach from the heart
