I established The Resource in September 2014 to support, encourage and equip those working with children, young people and families in the local church. I’ve 37 years experience in ministry with children and young people at local churches, for regional areas and at national events.
I’ve a Masters in Reflective Practice and Applied Theology from Oxford Brookes (2011); I’m a Trustee for CYM (The Institute for Children, Youth and Mission); a guest lecturer at a number of Colleges – including St Mellitus (London), Emmanuel College and Reign Ministries and last year I established ‘Paraklesis‘ – The Association of Children’s, Youth and Families Ministers.
I love mentoring children’s and youth ministers; delivering training and offering consultancy for churches and faith groups as they explore their way forward with children, young people and families – see below for some testimonials.
I’m married to the lovely Lisa, have two incredible teenage daughters and, when not seeking to add value to others through The Resource, love to hang out with my family in our caravan, drink good coffee, read a book and listen to jazz funk (but not all at the same time).
