Peter gave his life to Christ as a teenager when he fell in love with the Bible by reading Ched Myer’s commentary on Mark’s gospel (Binding the Strongman), and by doing so, learned about God’s heart for the poor and the broken and the lost.
He also developed a passion for theology by reading The Cost of Discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, in which he learned about the costly grace that God offers to each and every person. In fact, Peter found the story of God’s love for the world so compelling that it changed his life.
Over the years, Peter has worked as a full-time musician and an audio technician; a youth worker and a congregational minister; he has served as a chaplain at high school, at university, and through community care; and he has taught theology, ethics, biblical studies, pastoral care and the practice of ministry in churches, schools and universities. In 2014, Peter completed a PhD on hermeneutics, discipleship and narrative theology.
Together with his wife Janet, Peter has a blended family with six adult children, and together they love listening to live music, going to the movies, bush walking and enjoying the company of family and friends.
