Wollongong, informally referred to as “The Gong” is a seaside city located in South Eastern Australia. Wollongong is noted for its industry, port activity and the quality of its physical setting, occupying a narrow coastal plain between an almost continuous chain of surf beaches and the cliff line of the rainforest-covered Illawarra escarpment.

Using Media to Bring Hope

My Dad and I were sitting at Lake Thun in Switzerland. It was towards the end of my home visit and I wanted to spend some time with my dad sharing my dreams and visions. My Wife and I had not fully decided if we were going to run a media focused Discipleship Training School (DTS).

The Movement

Christ’s resurrection and the release of the Spirit kicked off a new era. As we pursue Jesus, we become like him, and take up our role as ‘ministers of reconciliation’ wherever we are, and wherever he sends us. Beginning in Acts, The Movement looks at the waves of those who have fully surrendered and followed after Jesus. He showed us the Creator’s love, and told us we’re surrounded by it. He showed us the lies we were basing everything on, and revealed the deepest truth. He showed us a life lived to the full, and invited us to try it. He gave us everything, holding nothing back. And now we GO because Jesus came.  Continue reading

The Mountain

Isaiah 2. Where is this all heading? The Mountain is about God’s plan to fully redeem all of creation; the Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven. It doesn’t begin at some unknown time in the future—Jesus proclaimed that the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. How do we live in the tension between the ‘already’ and the ‘not yet’ of this reality?

The Mercy

We arrive at The Mercy, weary and cynical. We’ve resigned to the status quo. “There is no other way”, we tell ourselves. Our gloom is interrupted, suddenly—the clouds break and reveal the starry sky. A helpless baby is born, of nobody much at all. But this baby is the Prince of Shalom, and of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. Continue reading

The Mess

The Mess is our drive for autonomy that put us on a track flowing against the grain of the created order. They called it the “fall”, which it was in a sense. But it was also the beginning of a treacherous climb. Grasping and clawing our way over each other—over Creation itself—in pursuit of the top. Destruction, death, decay… repeat. We are in desperate need of someone to show us a better way. Continue reading

The Magnificence

When God created everything, He saw that it was GOOD. Diverse, complex, beautiful. The Magnificence is a reflection on God the eternal, creative beyond imagination, holding all things together and making space for the created order to thrive.

Broadening Our Horizons

In 2004 God apprehended my heart and did a work of cleaning out the junk in my life through prayer ministry. It was then that I first learnt how to hear God’s voice and my heart was set alight to follow after Him, no matter what the cost. Continue reading
