To start out with our blog we have just given some details of our past and present ministry. We will update this from time to time.

Previous Ministry: A total of more than 40 years in ministry which includes:

Over 19 years pastoral experience with Assemblies of God both in England (some of this time concurrent with Bible College teaching) and in the United States. During the period in the United States (1993-1995) Colin established a Spanish language ministry in the prison in Huntsville, Texas.

Five years of missionary service in West Malaysia from 1978 to 1983 during which period we were involved in church planting in the states of Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang, as well as extensive itinerant teaching throughout Malaysia and other countries in Asia. For two years Colin was a member of the Executive Council of Malaysian Assemblies of God, acting as Eastern Division Supervisor. A further eight years missionary service in Malaysia from 1995-2003. Most of this time was spent in Bible College lecturing and conducting leadership seminars.

Nine years teaching as a full time faculty member in the Assemblies of God Bible College in Mattersey Hall, England (1983-1988, 1990-1994). Subjects taught were: Missions, Romans, Luke, Acts, Hebrews, Prayer and Spiritual Warfare, Homiletics, Hermeneutics, Evangelism, Eschatology, World Religions and the Cults. During this period Colin was responsible for evangelistic outreach by the students into the surrounding towns and villages. He was also responsible for assessing the preaching ability of the students.

We has also been involved in itinerant teaching ministry, visiting the following countries: Belgium, Germany, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Hong Kong, Taiwan, India, Mexico, Belize, Colombia, Cambodia, Myanmar, Venezuela and China. In 1998 we set up a Church Planting Institute in Cambodia which continues to the present time, producing graduates who have established churches in all the provinces of Cambodia. Our emphasis has been on training leaders and potential leaders with teaching emphasis being on church planting, pastoral care and pastoral counselling.

Present Ministry: Currently pastoring a church in South Wales in the United Kingdom, being released each year for three months to continue travelling in missions. Most of this time is spent in Malaysia where Colin teaches in Tung Ling Seminary, both in the Pastoral Interns Program and the School of Ministry, and also in the School of Acts where he teaches in the School of Ministry. He is also, at present, involved in setting up a church planting school for the South Wales area.

We just led a team of 18 on a missions trip from our church in Aberaman to Malaysia. The first we hope of many.
