Letting God Lead

Well the time has come for Jen, Finley and myself to head to sunny Sunderland. As much as it seems strange, and comes with a mix of emotions, good and bad, it feels right, and not just to us and the leadership, but right in God and the Holy Spirit. In our decisions it’s important…

He Knows Your Name

‘Do not be afraid for I have redeemed you, I have called you by name – you are mine.’ ‘He knows my name’ was the theme of the last Jobels taken by our very own interns. (Isaiah 43: 1) They very competently covered the theme but as I’ve been a part of pulling the programme…

Why Doesn’t Jesus Show Himself to Everyone?

Some years ago there was a craze of something called a ‘Magic Eye’ puzzle. It was a sort of optical illusion that was a mixture of colours and shapes that within it somewhere held a secret. The secret was a picture or word that if you stared at the picture for long enough you would…

Rolling with the Punches of Life

Being a new Dad, there are loads of experiences that me and my wife Jen are experiencing for the first time. Obviously Jen is a little bit more on the receiving end than me but hopefully you’ll get the picture as I go on. We try and get Finley into as much of a routine…

Making the most of the time

If you were at the last Jobels you’ll remember that I spoke on the defining moments that impact our lives. When you look back over 2014 you might think of defining moments that were good, for example, you might have made a new friend or started a new job, some of you might have ended…

Loughborough Church - Change is not inevitable

Change is not inevitable

As we start a new year many of us can look back to 2014 and reflect on the highs and the lows. We might do this casually or we might have set some deliberate time aside to look back at our successes and our failures, what we learned and, many of us have perhaps considered…

Loughborough Church - What will be will be

What will be, will be…

A many of you know Jen and I are expecting our first baby and we’ve decided that we’re going to let the sex of the baby be a surprise. We’ve been thinking about names and after much discussion we have decided on a few we really like and are really excited about meeting the little…

Loughborough Church - Is it all about timing

Is it all about Timing?

I want you to take a few moments to imagine an event in your life where timing was everything. It might be the time you remembered launching out on a word from God or you started a new routine for the sake of your health (you perhaps looked in the mirror and thought… ‘Man! It’s…

Loughborough Church - Is it time to lift the lid?

Is it time to lift the lid?

John Maxwell is someone that has always inspired me. I enjoy reading his books and listening to his ministry material because I always find it inspirational. It challenges my thinking and asks me questions that help me move forward.  For those of you who have never heard of John Maxwell, he is an internationally known…

Loughborough Church - Look at the Mud

Look at the Mud

A while ago I was listening to a preacher talk about his pride and joy… no it wasn’t his wife or his family. You guessed it… it was his car! He had spent considerable time cleaning it and polishing it and basically making it gleam. It was a relaxed day, possibly a Saturday and the kids…
