"I am a part time Non Stipendiary Ministry ordinand which really means, that I have undertaken to complete my training while continuing to work full time as a Virtual Lecturer with the South Eastern Regional College in Lisburn. Virtual Lecturing involves teaching over the internet, but I also do classroom face to face teaching of computing. I have previously worked in the telecommunications industry, but due to the downturn in this industry I retrained in further and higher education teaching.

"I am training at the Church of Ireland Theological Institute in Dublin. My training involves approximately eight training weekends a year at the college and during second and third year we are placed with a parish for “on the job” training. I am enjoying my time in All Saints and have found everyone to be very welcoming.

"While growing up on the Whitewell Road I attended Whitehouse Presbyterian Church with my family. In 1997 I met Wendy and two years later we married and moved to Ballynure and from then on I attended the Church of Ireland. We are blessed with one beautiful daughter, Abigail who is almost six. The rest as you might say is history!"
