Category: Youthworks Ministry Support

Effective Monday 25th November, I have started as a Youth Ministry Adviser with Anglican Youthworks.

As part of my new job, I am available to Anglican churches in the Sydney Diocese for consultations at no charge, to run training and to assist in any way possible. Other denominations are welcome to contact me to discuss how I can assist you.

My particular focus is church-based youth ministry in the Sydney Anglican Diocese regions of Georges River and South Sydney, as well as the Sutherland Shire. However, I am also available for training and consultation throughout the Diocese at large.

I would also love to come and speak at your church, youth group or school.

Our contact details have changed. You can see them on the contact me page.

Also, it’s only 5 weeks to go until the due date of our third child, so only one more major change to go… God willing!

Mandy and I have two pieces of news to share with you all.

The first is that I have accepted a job with Anglican Youthworks as a Regional Youth Adviser. My new role is to work with the Church Resource Unit in developing strategies to reach the Archbishop’s goal of 10% of all Australians in Bible-believing churches within 10 years. My job will take me to churches throughout Sydney Diocese as our team trains and resources churches and schools in this exciting mission. Youthworks is under the direction of Al Stewart (CEO), and my team leader will be Tony Willis (Director, Church Resources Unit).

We will leave St Philip’s South Turramurra and begin with Youthworks on the 25th of November. We are planning to live in the St George area (near Hurstville), as I am responsible for the Georges River and South Sydney Regions of Sydney Diocese. I will email you our new details later this year when they come to hand. (NB. My mobile and my email will remain the same).

The second piece of news is that we are expecting our third child. The due date is 6th January 2003.

Originally we thought the baby was due on the 31st January, but the ultrasound showed that we were four weeks out!

We would greatly appreciate your prayers during the coming months. Pray for Mandy as she deals with the stresses of pregnancy and the preparation for the move. Pray for Liana and Jemimah as they prepare to say goodbye to friends and move on to a new home (and school or preschool). Pray for me that I will finish strongly at St Philip’s and be well prepared for my new role. Pray for us all as enjoy a few weeks’ holiday between jobs.
