King David started off as a shepherd. So did I. I grew up on a farm in the Gisborne region, with loving Christian parents, a sister and a brother. As I grew up, I wanted to share Jesus' love with others, but didn't know exactly where or how. In 2013, at age 19, I moved to Hastings to train with OAC, and have been there ever since. I discovered that God has called me to be an evangelist, giving me a desire to tell others about Jesus, even from as early as age 10. Not only that, but I also see the importance of training others to share the good news of Jesus too.
Various programmes and activities are good, but only the Gospel has an eternal impact on people's lives. In Hastings, I enjoy using things like programmes and ice-breakers to engage people and share the Gospel with them. One of my highlights is children's ministry, because children have their whole lives ahead of them and can become evangelists, pastors, teachers and leaders - and it is crucial to help give them a Biblical worldview while they are young.
I regularly do things like helping with school programmes, visiting families in the community, sharing the Gospel with strangers on the street, and working with others to help more people be involved in teaching others about Jesus. My home church in Hastings is Riverbend Bible Church, and I also travel and work with other churches and organisations.
