I noticed recently an increase in visits to the blog.  It appears that there might be some new readers, or at least some curious people, stopping by to look, read, and share.  That’s great! I’m honored and humbled.

With the increase of visits, I thought it might be good to welcome you and introduce the blog and it’s purpose so, welcome!  I started this blog back in October 2006 as a way to share what God is doing in the midst of my life and ministry – a place where I can share the joys and successes as well as the frustrations and failings of life and ministry.

The strapline for the site is Applied Youth Ministry.  This blog is about Applied Youth Ministry – the theory, practice, life and interests of being a Youth Minister – to me that includes a real range of areas: youth ministry, sport, theology, books, schools work, funny news stories, spiritual musings (quotes from the Bible, books, music, adverts that stood out to me), family, and time management/hacks for life.

Thank you for visiting, do check out the links on this blog, I attempt to add and update the blog each day so do come back regularly.  Come and share the journey …


Married to the amazing Sarah and raising Jakey, Daniel, Amelia, Josh & Jonah in our blended family. Passionate for Jesus, social work & sport.
