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 was published as Failure and Prospect in the Library of New Testament Studies. For some of my academic writings, 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, including New Testament Studies, Reformed Perspective, Modern Reformation, Clarion, and at The Gospel Coalition (Australia).

Through my research and writing at both popular and scholarly 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.
