Where I experience passion in ministry:
It is my greatest joy in ministry to see people gain a fresh understanding that the gospel of Jesus Christ is deeply relevant to and transformative for the particular circumstances of their lives. This is true for new believers as well as for those who have followed Jesus for many years. It is the work of individual revival. I also love the ministry of reconciliation, active and alive in healing rifts and divisions in churches and communities. I delight also in teaching and preaching.
