In my last post we looked at what was mis-use and no-use of our inheritance as sons and daughters.
In this post we will look at Inheritance: Right Use
Folks, the answer to that Big Question: WHO AM I? is that you are a son and…Read More
In the last post we looked at the “lights on moment” I had regarding my inheritance as a son while I was riding my motorbike and I left you with the thought “Don’t Squander Your Inheritance”.
Luke 15:11–32 (ESV) is the story of the prodigal…Read More
In A Nutshell
In a nutshell I am passionate about God’s people encountering Him, experiencing their theology and doing life the way the bible says we can.
This means bringing heaven to earth which, in a nut shell, means His rule and His will operating on earth just as it does in heaven.
Ambition is not Hunger
Part of my story was the revelation that ambition for the things of God is not the same as hunger for more of him. Since that first revelation and encounter with him (read My Journey) I have been in the constant pursuit of the presence of God.
The Father Heart of God
Gods primary purpose in sending Jesus was not the remission of sin but the adoption of sons
Understanding this phrase has changed my life! I am not simply saved from hell and destined for heaven (although I am) but I am adopted as a son of almighty God. I have access to an intimate relationship with God as my Father. Therefore I am a co-heir with Jesus which means I have access to an inheritance not simply when I die and go to be with Him in heaven, but now on earth as it is in heaven!
That has lead me on an amazing journey of discovery which includes:
- The Father Heart of God: He is a loving father not an angry God
- My Identity: His purpose in sending Jesus was not simply the removal of my sin, although that was necessary, but my adoption as son. This means no more performance, no more self-reliance, no more fear or unbelief.
- We are His Image Bearers: Jesus said ‘If you have seen me you have seen the father’. What do people see when they meet me?
Heaven on Earth
I love visiting churches and meeting with other leaders to share my story and to release heaven on earth. For me this is far more than simply saying that because something is or isn’t in heaven that it should or should not be here on earth. For me the reality of the Heaven on Earth statement is that His Kingdom (His Rule) and His Will be done on earth just as it is in heaven. In heaven his rule is unchallenged and His good and perfect will is carried out without interference. That is what I mean when I expect heaven on earth.
So when we pray heaven on earth in regard to sickness we are not saying because there is no sickenss in heaven there cant be any sickness here, what we are praying for the rule of the king to come, and the will of that father, to be executed on earth just as his rule and will is executed in heaven.
I believe that it is not Gods will that any of us be sick, I know that because in heaven, the place where his will is perfectly implemented; where his kingdom rule is perfectly displayed there is not sickness. This shows me his perfect will and that is what I am bringing and declaring over sickness here on earth.
Telling My Story
I love being given the opportunity to tell my story or teach on some of the revelations I have had and the lessons I have learned and am speaking regularly all over the UK and on occasion overseas too. (check My Diary for more details).
Some of my favourite topics are:
- Unbelief: Jesus was presented from doing all he wanted in his home town because of unbelief. I believe the church today is full of unbelief and this is the thing that prevents the supernatural being released and revival coming.
- Performance & Self Reliance: There are things that we have become accustomed to that prevent us from full experiencing the Father Heart of God and stepping into our full identity as sons and daughters of God.
- Image Bearers: What does it mean to be a true image bearer of God. We were all created in his image but is that what people see when they see us?
- Being Hungry for God: This is something that we all forget. Ambition is not the same has hunger. Spiritual disciplines are not substitutes for having a hunger for more of God.

This is such a wonderful story of perseverance in prayer. 22 years of being told it will be almost impossible for you to have children … You know whats coming right! Enjoy the video! Highlights from Kings Church Horsham on Vimeo.
In the middle of December 2015 I met with some new friends from Time To Revive ministries and leaders from two London churches in a Turkish Restaurant to hear stories of the breaking out of salvations on the street in the USA … you will never guess what happened … Yup, one of the waiters was listening...
This is an incredible story of someone getting a breakthrough because they wanted their healing more than they wanted their reputation. Some months ago I was preaching and heard the Holy Spirit speak very clearly to me that I was to ask people who had internal problems with their “tubes” to stand. I explained only...
Recently I came back from Romania and one of my many visits to CCB in Brasov. While I was there an elderly lady came to me to very excitedly to tell me the story of her eyes being healed. On my last visit I had a word of knowledge for someone with itchy eyes. Not...
The Church I am an elder in is part of the NewFrontiers Family of Churches.
NewFrontiers is a group of apostolic leaders who together with their teams and churches are united on global mission and genuine relationship.
Together that represents over 850 churches across more than 60 nations.
The leaders of the various “spheres” that make up New Frontiers regularly meet together as they believe that
we can do more together than we can apart
Over the past few years Newfrontiers has transitioned from one movement of churches, led by Terry Virgo, into several groups (sometimes called ‘spheres’). Each of these groups have their own leaders and callings, but are still part of the same family.
The Church I am and elder in, Kings Church Horsham, is part of the Catalyst group of churches within Newfrontiers which is lead by David Devenish.
Although each sphere is autonomous there continues to be a strong sense of unity. Just recently, in Istanbul, all the leaders of the different spheres internationally gathered together where there was a continued sense of unity, new purpose, helping one another, working together.
It’s exciting to hear that alongside the diversity and variety that now marks our family of churches, there is deep sense of unity and shared vision as well.
Newfrontiers is made up of a number of apostolic spheres. The one our church is part of is called Catalyst. Within this sphere there are a number of “hubs”. Each hub is lead by a hub leaders who relationally has a number of eldership teams looking to him for inspiration, relationship and help. Kings Church Horsham look to the hub led by my friend Simon Holley.
Simon is the author of the amazing book “Sustainable Power” (which everyone should read) and he is also the lead elder at Kings Arms Church in Bedford
New Testament partnership seemed to primarily be around four things in which I aspire to partner: Similar Doctrine, Shared Mission, Genuine Relationship and Recognised Leadership.
For me that looks like relating to churches and leaders both inside AND outside the NewFrontiers family of churches. Personally that would mean friendships with mutual fellowship, teaching, sharpening and accountability with people like:
- Phil Playfoot: Kings Church Horsham, UK
- Dave Fellingham: Kings Church Horsham, UK
- Simon Holley: Kings Arms / Bedford, UK
Equally there will be those who I draw from in terms of teaching, inspirational leadership and who shape my thoughts. This would include people like:
- Bill Johnson: Bethel Church, Redding, CA, USA
- Paul Manwaring: Bethel Church, Redding, CA, USA
- Pete Carter: Eastgate Church, Kent, UK
Other churches I work with
Centrul Creştin Braşov
This is a newfronters church in Brasov, Romania.
I have been working with this amazing church for over 10 years and love visiting and preaching several times a year

Gathering Likeminded Leaders
I love to gather with other like minded leaders locally to pursue the presence of God together. Once a term we gather leaders from across the south east to worship, pray and encounter God together.
My YouTube Channel
In the course of my travels I encounter many very interesting people and so decided create a YouTube Channel so I could share those meetings and discussions. I hope you enjoy!
The interesting book series called “Gods Generals” has always interested me:
I wonder if, at the time, people recognised this folks as generals? I suspect not! This made me think about the amazingly godly and spiritually powerful men and women who I have the privilege of brushing shoulder with, ministering with and some I even get to call friends. I am sure that they will be known in history yet to come as His Generals and so I decided to video record some time with each of them.
This YouTube Channel is dedicated, in the main, to them.
