I am a Christian pastor, leader and theologian whose ministry focus lies in resourcing christian individuals & communities on biblical singleness, sexuality, worldview formation & other related topics.
I was born and bred in Sydney, Australia and don't remember a time when I didn't trust in Jesus as my Saviour and call on him as my Lord. After completing a Bachelor of Arts degree, I went on to attain a Bachelor of Divinity (Hons) at Moore Theological College (Sydney) and a Doctorate in Philosophy through St Mark's National Theological Centre, Canberra. My thesis is titled 'The End of Singleness? Towards a Theological Retrieval of Singleness for the Contemporary Church'.
I am ordained as a deacon within the Anglican Diocese of Sydney and have served on the ministry team of a number of different churches in Sydney. I am aslo a member of the governing bodies of a number of Christian organisations, speak regularly at various conferences, events, churches and podcasts, and actively serve in my church.
I am also the founding director of the Single Minded Conference whose vision is to teach what the bible says about singleness, marriage, sexuality, identity, relationships and other topics.
My current research primarily centers upon a theological ethic of singleness for the contemporary evangelical church. I am convinced from God's word that:
All seasons, circumstances and situations of Christian singleness are implicit with theological dignity, value and significance.
There is much more to say about the goodness of Christian singleness than merely that it allows you to be more devoted to kingdom work.
Christian singleness is imbued with unique and important eschatological significance.
The rediscovery of faithful theology of singleness is urgently needed in the evangelical church, not simply for the sake of the single Christian themselves, but for the sake of the church's own understanding of her unique identity as the Body of Christ.
I also research, write and teach in broader areas of theology of sexuality, Christian ethics and worldview formation, as well as more general areas of Christian theology, bible teaching and pastoral care.
