I finish my ministry at www.unitechurch.org.nz on 27th January. Over the past year as I have asked God about my next season he’s continually brought me to “giving myself to the ministry of prayer and word” for the church. I believe our character as his sons and daughters, and the clarity of our testimony will open the way for many far from God to come home.
For several months the Spirit has been stirring me to ride around NZ by motorbike as prayer for his church across our nation.
As I ride I hope to meet with others and hear their story and share my heart and pray together for our the church. The Lord is going before to prepare the meetings with people as he appoints. Are you one of those I’m looking forward to meeting?

I want to hear from you, so feel free to share in comments, and to share this page with others who may be interested.
I’m planning on leaving Nelson on 29th January, heading around the South Island, down the East and back up the West Coast. I plan to depart Nelson on 28th January.
A draft schedule is below. This can be adjusted as people ask to connect. I can add about five days to this schedule.
Full disclosure here. Grace my wife is heading to London on 27th January returning on 27th February. Our daughter living in London is having her first child, so my ride is scheduled while Grace is away. We expect this to be the first step in a season of ministering to the church across our nation, in prayer and word. We will share our journey as God clarifies the details for our next season.
