Ko wai ahau?
I grew up in the shadow of the mountain Tangi ti keo, drinking the waters of Te Whanganui-a-tara. My ancestors come from Norwich UK, moved to London for work, and then migrated to Aotearoa in the late 19th century.
I'm a writer, communicator, and innovator in church-planting and Christian community. I've written for publications including The Spinoff, Sojourners, Stuff.co.nz, and Newshub. My book, 21 Elephants - Leaving Religion For The Reckless Way of Jesus, was the winner of the Ashton Wylie Book Award.
I've walked through my share of dark valleys, but I'm yet to see a place where a glimmer of God's light isn't hidden for us. You can hear me talk about this on this episode of Down To Earth Conversations.
With my friend Rev. Spanky Moore, I host the 21 Elephants Podcast. I lead Catch Network, an Aotearoa-wide collection of missions, ministries, and conspiracies of love. I also lead Re-new Communities, a collection of churches and justice initiatives in Wellington, New Zealand. I'm also an Anglican Priest and Archdeacon based in Brooklyn, Wellington.
