Andrew and Kim have been in full-time ministry in diverse roles including as a youth pastor, rural school chaplain, Bible college principal, and in state-wide leadership roles, but his primary passion has always been located in the potential of a local Kingdom Community who know Christ and seek to make Him known. He loves the Bible and is committed to relevant and applicable teaching and preaching of the good news of Jesus and the potential of Jesus’ people to shine light and love in a hurting world. He is therefore committed to supporting people as they live for Christ in real, practical, loving ways in diverse contexts including at work, in a cafe or pub, in a local sporting club, in the family, etc.
