Adventists believe life is more than just the accumulation of "stuff". It’s about more than just surviving. It means more than simply maximising pleasure and minimising pain. We believe every life is of infinite value. Why? Because every human is miraculously crafted by God who wants us to live life to the full. What's more, He sent His Son to demonstrate true love, forgiveness and grace.

Prior to entering Ministry I was a dairy farmer and involved in the local church. I am married to a very special lady, Rosalie, and have two awesome children Geena and Caleb, in whom I am especially proud. It was the local church who encouraged my spiritual growth which eventuated with me attending Avondale to study Ministry. An experience that affirmed that this was where God wanted me to be. So the local church has always been very special to me, each church I have served in has been a place of God’s holy people. It is as Paul affirms in Eph.4:12 the place where we are to be equipped for ministry. After six years ministering in north New South Wales, ten in the North New Zealand Conference and since 2010 here in the South New Zealand Conference, that view has not diminished, and in fact it has been affirmed in the present climate of ‘discipleship’. Now it is my privilege to work with the ministers as Ministerial Secretary while still ministering in the local church. For the local church is where the rubber meets the road and where the Holy Spirit is working among His people. I’m excited about what He is about to do in our conference.
