Hi, and welcome to
Denise and I are excited to be part of this great adventure here in Auckland New Zealand. The region is special to us, as we became Christians at a Church not 10 meters from where we now meet.
In the past couple of years, we have established a leadership team, and a pastoral care team, with a mentoring programme which underpins a clear strategy in which to achieve our vision. In the months ahead, we are developing our leadership training programme that includes an Internship
programme, and a range of options to our regular Sunday services / mid week activities, as we outwork our vision for our local community. 2020 will be a year of building upon our foundations.
Our Sunday evening service "5 LIVE" (will recommence in the Autumn), is a one hour contemporary style meeting, which is always a high point of our week. We have experienced some amazing testimonies of Gods healing power.
Our third year course is "PURSUIT OF FREEDOM", which will begin on February 13th and will run over four semesters. This course is our second phase in our vision statement "Find Freedom". Unlike our other courses, pursuit of freedom will not be available as a correspondence course, due to the practical ministry times which form part of the course. Registrations are essential.
Living Essentials Course will commence in the Autumn and the graduates of LE will join further graduates of the KINGDOM LIFE and ROCK SOLID course which concluded in DEC 2019. Last years prophetic ministry and presbytery was amazing, with a clear sense of direction for all involved. Both courses will recommence in 2020 in conjunction with our leadership school.
In February 2019, we began our first "part time"internship programme, which included two candidates. 2020 Has already received over 30 applicants to date, and our selection process is underway. Interested?
Eden Kids is an initiative which provides care and development, for our Eden Kids, spirit soul and body. This programme really excites us all, and it is growing numerically and thriving. The programme is divided into three components where contemporary worship, practical and enthusiastic teaching with FUN and GAMES...literally! Our children's ministry team are continually striving to provide innovative tools and materials to supplement their creativity and passion. All our workers comply with our child protection policy and are continually being supported to excel in this precious ministry.
We are establishing a vibrant team whose focus is on growth groups in the region, with combined evening meetings in the community. We are all excited at the amazing growth and frequent salvation's we are seeing, and our Club 180 programme is ensuring we provide good steady growth for our newcomers.
Denise and I have been in full time ministry since our ordination in 1985, where we were Pastors within The New Life Churches of NZ and LIFE church of NZ. Since then, we have pioneered churches and pastored in the UK, and Australia, and with continued ministry in over 20 Nations. Our present focus and season, is on local church ministry, which we love and feel honoured to serve.
Our passion (and belief) is the local church and in the realm of Evangelism, Team development and Church planting. We love praying for people and have seen some miraculous Healing's. We have four children (and 7 grandchildren) and have been married for 46 yrs. We presently live in Central Auckland.
