God got hold of me when I was 21. I helped out as a Youth Leader in a small local church for a couple of years then along with my wife Charise helped plan and plant Grace Vineyard Church in 1999. In my role, I really enjoy involving skilled volunteers in what we’re doing. It’s so rewarding watching people grow and get engaged in the wider mission as they serve in areas they’re gifted in. At home, Charise and I have three kids who keep us on our toes. I'm a keen photographer, coffee roaster and also enjoy painting big bright canvases.
