I am a missionary, leadership and vocational coach and educator. My work focusses on calling people towards vocational fulfilment, while my educational perspective is rooted in scripturally-based discipleship, the Hebraic roots of Christian faith and contextual missiology.
- My vocational experience spans industry, commerce, academia and intercultural leadership training.
- I have a doctorate in Contextual Missiology, from Fuller School of Intercultural Studies, a Masters in Intercultural Studies and a BEng in Civil Engineering.
- I have provided intercultural leadership training in Kenya, Burkina Faso, the USA and Canada and am presently committed to the development of Maize Plant Discipleship.
Faith is integral to how I understand and appreciate the world. I believe holistic faith leads to worldviews and practices capable of authentically facilitating human flourishing. For me, this reflects the true nature of the missionary vocation.
- Holistic faith looks beyond dogma, creed and belief to shared actions and values.
- In a holistic faith perspective, our personal faith, culture and worldview are held in appropriate tension with the cultural contexts and faith of others.
- Authentically recognising—not merely acknowledging—the multiplicity of peoples and cultures in our shared world is transformative. It opens our minds and hearts to the complexity of human nature and the different conditions that respectively facilitate or deny human flourishing.
My family and I live in Carmarthenshire, in South West Wales, where we have been involved with educational and ecological charities such as SNAP and Banc Organics, as well as Air Cadets and Ramblers.
