Background

After spending almost ten years in High school teaching and embracing the role of Assistant Headteacher in both pastoral and academic discipline, I have embraced many variations of teaching styles, pastoral care and academic improvement. I believe firmly that teaching must engage students on every level and equally the measurement of a learner is not defined by the marks on a paper but by the empowerment, equipping and releasing into their anointing.

Testimony

I am deeply driven by the broken and the lost; fuelled by the essence of urgency and discipling so that no one has to stand before God in disarray, having never known Him. As people progress in their walk, they are released from the shackles that have held them back and they start to recognise their true aetiology and develop in the intimate communion with others and God.
“College is a catalyst for people at any position in their walk; an awakening into large and expansive life. College becomes a place of intimate communion, layered with dialogical relationships and – as it is further cultivated through prayerful devotion and communal sharing – becomes the natural habitat for any individual’s growth and effective discipleship. The simplicity of college provides fertile soil for intimacy and sharing; an intentional environment which in turn, aids the betterment of the wider Church and our individual sphere, to which the Lord ‘adds to daily’ (Acts 2:47).
