Rule #34 – Eternity

20 April 2016

I enjoy watching a good Sci-Fi movie; it is an escape from reality and often deals with themes that dip into the spiritual. These themes or topics challenge our thinking and give us an alternate reality of the future. One of my favourite themes, when done well, is time travel. If only we could control…

A Justice Heart Checkup

14 April 2016

While finance in ministry is welcome and often vital, does it have the power to save apart from our greater calling of genuine loving relationships? Ps.

Rule #103 – God Has Your Gift and Calling Already Identified

01 April 2016

One of the biggest struggles in life is the struggle for identity. Who are we? Where do we fit? What are we meant to do with our lives? We watch others, we strive and we struggle to find our way. David the shepherd boy was alone, forgotten and thought little of by his father, but…

Success through Thankfulness

23 March 2016

When we are thankful, we open ourselves up for more opportunities, creativity, productivity and success. Being thankful means that we can look at the resources, talents, gifts, skills, opportunities, people and situations dealt to us in a very positive and grateful manner. This attitude usually allows for greater success than when we are ungrateful. Being…

Rule #7 – The Power of Completion

20 March 2016

When I was younger I was a naturally gifted runner; not the best or the fastest but I loved to run. Every play time I was running, every sports day I was running and trying to run faster than the other kids. There is nothing like running fast; you feel like you’re floating on air. By…

09 March 2016

Over the last 25 years the Church has moved from an exclusive view of ministry to an inclusive view of ministry. By exclusive, I mean ministry was limited to the Pastors and Missionaries. Now we have a very inclusive view of ministry. Students come to Harvest and graduate believing ministry includes traditional Church roles and Charities,…

We’re excited for you to join us at Harvest Experience 2016

16 February 2016

When my wife, Trudy, and I drove on the weekend along the waterfront of Geelong towards the Novotel, the atmosphere of our surroundings had an amazing emotional impact. I don’t know about you, but when I go to a new place it is more the atmosphere—the vibe of the place—that captures me most, rather than…

Rules for life & ministry #101- Many Are Called but Few Have Chosen

12 February 2016

When we read a scripture like Matthew 22:14 “For many are called, but few are chosen.” We get a sense that those who are called by God are somehow fated, somehow they didn’t have a choice in it. God has chosen the greats of the Bible: how could they resist, how could they disobey? God…
