I am a missiological educator. My current focus is developing and publishing Maize Plant Discipleship.
- I have provided intercultural leadership training in Kenya, Burkina Faso, the USA, Canada and Wales.
- I have a doctorate in Contextual Missiology, from Fuller School of Intercultural Studies, an MPhil in Intercultural Studies and a BEng (Civ Eng).
- My vocational experience spans: intercultural mission, academia, industry (structural engineering) and commerce (design, print and web-dev).
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.
- I believe everyone—not only religious believers—has a potential vocation and I encourage people towards discovering vocational fulfilment.
