I was born and grew up in the Scottish Highlands. We were not a family that ever went to Church, but when I was 18 I went to study Chemistry in the city of Aberdeen. There through the witness of a fellow student I came to faith in Christ. After about a year I began to sense God’s call to ministry so I finished the three years of Chemistry for my degree and worked briefly in an oil laboratory. This was followed with six months teaching English in Peru, before I returned to Scotland and studied for a further three years in Edinburgh at the Free Church of Scotland College.

In my first ministry, I spent seven years working mainly in a deprived area or Inverness, the capital of the Highlands, where many people with addictions came to faith in Christ. During my time in the north of Scotland I was also a chaplain to the local prison and served on the financial, strategic and missions boards of the Free Church of Scotland.  I am married to Yazmin and we have two boys Joshua and Matthew.  

Then in March 2016 doors began to open for a move to Tampa. Although this has been a step of faith we have been filled with so much peace about it and look forward to seeing Jesus move in many people’s lives throughout this great city.
