Tell us something about yourself we wouldn’t expect?
I farm Saddleback pigs
Why did you decide to become a trustee for Premier?
I’m really excited by how tech can enable the gospel to go to the ends of the earth and want to be a part of that. And I continue to be amazed, grateful and humbled at Premier’s reach across the nation and indeed beyond our shores.
Why is this important to you?
Through the tech revolution, this generation has a greater opportunity than any previous to see coming to life Christ’s promise that, through the Holy Spirit, his followers would take the gospel “to the ends of the earth”. Premier is uniquely placed to send the good news of Jesus out to the harvest field both in this country and across the world.
What would you want with you if stranded on a desert Island?
A fishing rod plus unlimited cheese and beer
If you could invite anyone (past/present) to be at your dinner party, who would you choose and why?
Aside from Jesus (obviously), I think Moses. Shepherd, killer, yet amazing leader and a great man of God. I’d want to ask him about the plagues and exodus from Egypt, the parting of the Red Sea, encountering God on Mt Sinai and spending 40 years in the wilderness!
