“My vision is to point the lost, both in and outside of the church, towards Jesus through love, discipleship and leading.”

While growing up in the church, I made a commitment to follow Him at the young age of 12. Since then, I’ve been falling in love with Jesus more and more, as I see Him break into people’s lives all around me.

After completing my Bachelor of Ministry at Malyon Theological College, I began working in the Riverlife Youth department as a pastoral assistant and grew a passion for discipleship and leadership development. All of us are in need of God’s presence to continually shape us into the true image of Christ. I’ve given my life to developing deep disciples.

After seeing my passion for teaching and discipleship grow, I began volunteering in the Spiritual Formation department, which eventually led to a job as a pastoral assistant working alongside Pastor Jo Leutton. You might have heard my ramblings on Riverlife’s Podcast Channels. In 2019 after being endorsed by Riverlife, I completed my pastoral registration with the Queensland Baptist Movement, where I gained denominational registration as a Pastor.

Life is amazing alongside my wonderful wife Annie, and young daughter Marley.
