Personal Faith
I committed my life to Jesus Christ as an 8-Year-old, with very sincere intent, initially suffered some doubts of genuine salvation, but grew strongly with regular Church involvement, personal Bible reading study and memorisation, Water Baptised at 18 with complete assurance since. I love Jesus and strive to grow in my personal relationship with him, fellowshipping and contributing at Orewa Community Church, and Leading a Friday Night Family home group. Some of my favourite verses/
challenges are Col 3:1-5 and 2 Peter 1, Esp verses 5-7. I value very highly the Special Christian Character of KingsWay, I am committed to The King of Kings having His way in KingsWay, and helping protect the school from conforming to the Pattern of the World (Romans 12:1-2)

I want to encourage excellent Teaching and Learning with a solid biblical worldview, I have already and am committed to represent parent views in a genuine parent partnership.
