A Capetonian all my life, I am married to Allison and have two adult children – Jason and Erin. We have lived and work in Durbanville for 13 years.
After the Defense Force, where I came to know God, I qualified as a Electronics technician and Programmer. Convinced of God’s call I then studied theology and went into pastoral ministry for 23 years where I also developed my love for cross-cultural mission and discipled others to do the same in Southern Africa. Leaving my denomination and pastoral ministry I joined a church planting movement in the UK and headed up their theological training in Africa for a period. Since then the Lord opened opportunities to serve in China from time to time through under the name of my ministry called Intentional Encounters.
To support myself in 2013 I qualified as a Complementary Health practitioner where I also have opportunities to minister to ‘unchurched’ clients who are struggling with chronic pain and stress illness.
