Are You Called to Shake the Earth?

By on June 14, 2018

I’ve had the privilege of knowing many earth-shakers. They walk through the doors of Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry every day. But what I’ve also noticed is this – when they leave, they walk out hard journeys on their quest for big impact. This message is for those who…

Sowing, Growing and Harvest – Why 99% of the Journey is Waiting

By on May 13, 2018

I was minding my own business one day when I felt the Lord say “there are three distinct seasons of the seed.” I used to be a farmer, and the Lord often speaks to me about my journey through the analogy of the crop. As passionate revivalists, we value…

A Challenge for Girls: Crushing the High Stakes Dating Culture

By on March 14, 2018

In my last post I challenged the guys to lead the way in crushing our high stakes dating culture, and this week I have some thoughts for the girls. Ladies, this is for you. Can you go from “high stakes” to “why not?”

Ladies, you were made to have your…

Crushing the High Stakes: A Challenge for Guys

By on February 19, 2018

If you’re read my last post you’ll know I’m pretty passionate about relationships, and particularly about seeing our Christian dating culture change from “high stakes” to healthy pursuit of connection. Marriage is high stakes. Engagement is high stakes. A coffee date? Not so much. But when I look around…

What’s With Our “High Stakes” Dating Culture?

By on January 8, 2018

During my experience as a pastor I’ve had the privilege of spending time with a lot of people in really healthy marriages. I’ve realised that no matter how they met, what they’ve walked through, the one thing that makes a marriage work is the foundation of great connection. My…

Feasting in the Dry Season

By on December 3, 2017

In a Church culture of grace, we’re great at celebrating the goodness of God. We intentionally share testimonies and live with an expectation of blessing. We sing songs like “It’s always like springtime with you,” but we seldom talk about when it’s not. So when we’re in a dry season,…

Expectancy for an Encounter with a Good God

By on November 13, 2017

The difference between “expectancy” and “expectation” might seem subtle, but over and over again in my own life and my life as a pastor, I see how easy it is to miss, especially in the context of how we experience and encounter God. We want to encounter God deeply and…

Navigating Controversy With Love

By on October 13, 2017

We all navigate controversial issues as Christians. It’s almost impossible to avoid divisive topics, whether they’re coming up in conversation or just part of an never-ending stream of opinions on social media. I’ve been invited many times to have an opinion I know will offend the people around me….

What do you have faith for?

By on July 29, 2017

Every year my first year BSSM students demonstrate radical faith. They pray for the sick, prophesy to strangers, preach the gospel on the streets and pursue personal breakthrough. As they get ready to leave, their hearts are filled with promises and dreams for their lives. It’s easy to dream…

Influencing from the Field: How to Add Your Strength

By on April 4, 2017

We all have moments of armchair opinions, hypothetical solutions and quick criticism for our leaders. But what I’ve come to realise is that my opinion holds a lot more weight if I’m personally invested in the vision being built. When I feel an opinion rise up, I become aware of…
