Lost and without hope, an experience with Jesus Christ changed my life forever...

my life

As a youth I lacked confidence and direction.  I always sensed there was something more to life, but I didn't know what, or Who, that was.  At an early age I started listening to Grunge and Metal music, and began to give myself to be a musician.  I wholly embraced this music, and the lifestyle that accompanied it; drinking, drugs, rebellion and immorality.  I found escape from the meaninglessness of life in drugs and I found expression for my frustration and rejection in music...but it was all temporal, and I was always left with the same problem; me.  

Through the course of time I formed a band and began dreaming of playing music for life, until one destiny defining day I was kicked out of my own band.  Angry and dejected I began to search the local music stores for "Guitarist Wanted" adverts, until I stumbled across a "Christian Metal" band looking for a guitarist.  Never being interested in religion, but desperate to play guitar, we organised an audition.  They invited me into their band, citing one condition...I'd attend their church.  So here I found myself, a long-haired, pot smoking, irreligious, immoral teen sitting in a Holy Ghost filled Pentecostal church!


“From that moment, every question and doubt no longer mattered because I had met the God of the universe, I had met the Son of God, Jesus Christ.”

my salvation

10 months passed by of faithful church attendance, but no surrender.  I had my band and my immoral life, why surrender to this God?  I had so many questions and so many doubts, but that all changed one Sunday morning.  Lost and without hope, an experience with Jesus Christ changed my life forever...in a song service I experienced the presence of the living God, something beyond words and something I had never known before.  From that moment, every question and doubt no longer mattered because I had met the God of the universe, I had met the Son of God, Jesus Christ.  I willingly surrendered to Jesus Christ and was saved!

God began to change me and deliver me from my addictions, He began to transform my mind and my heart.  I discovered the truth of 2 Corinthians 5:17; "...if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation..."

I have now been married 14 years, have 4 wonderful children, and have had the privilege of pioneering for 5 years in Western Sydney, NSW, Australia.


“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”
— 2 Corinthians 5:17
