I’m a grateful servant of God, redeemed by his grace through Christ.


was born and raised near Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I have been working in pastoral ministry for more than fifteen years in churches in Canada and Australia.


I serve as the minister of the Mount Nasura Free Reformed Church in Western Australia. For a collection of my sermons, see here.

Back in 2016, I earned a PhD at St. Mary's University in Twickenham, London, England. I wrote a thesis on the parable of Lazarus and the Rich Man (Luke 16:19-31). It has been published in the Library of New Testament Studies. You can visit my Academia.edu page here.

I have written a few books over the years:

Wise: Living By the Ancient Words of the Commandments & Proverbs

Hallowed: Echoes of the Psalms in the Lord's Prayer

Weak Pastor, Strong Christ: Developing a Christ-Shaped Ministry


My articles have appeared in a range of magazines and websites, included New Testament Studies, Reformed Perspective, Modern Reformation, Clarion, and The Gospel Coalition (Australia).

Through my research and writing at both popular and academic levels, I aim to promote a better understanding of the Christian Scriptures.

My wife Rebecca and I have been blessed with four daughters. I love to spend time surrounded by the beauty of God’s creation while running, hiking, and camping.
