Associate Lecturer

Neil is a member of the Faculty of Theology .


Married to the first girl I fell in love with and have 3 amazing sons.

The son of a missionary, I have been a Christian Leader for 35 years in various roles, mostly in the context of a growing mega-church. Lately, I have been privileged to contribute in East Africa, where I have ministered to young adults and coached leaders. I love what Soren Kierkegaard said about purpose:

What I really need is to get clear about what I must do, not what I must know, except insofar as knowledge must precede every act. What matters is to find a purpose, to see what it really is that God wills that I shall do; the crucial thing is to find a truth which is truth for me, to find the idea for which I am willing to live and die.

If I could describe what Kierkegaard called, “the one thing”, it would be helping the next generation to encounter Christ and partner with him in revival.

Unsurprisingly, my research interest is in the conditions and content of encounter, and how that can be transformational.

I love to travel, read and simply live with my brilliant family.
