I’m delighted to serve as part of the eldership here at Seagate. I’m excited to see how God continues to use Seagate to share the good news of Christ and to serve the community of Troon and beyond. I’m passionate about discipleship and communicating the relevance of the gospel clearly in today’s culture.

I’m married to my amazing wife Melody and we have three wonderful children, Lucy, Daniel and Caleb.

I grew up in Mid Argyll and studied to become a PE Teacher at Stirling University where I was involved in Christians in Sport and in leading the Christian Union, as well as spending a lot of time playing and coaching football!

I taught my probation year in Marr College in 2012 and I’ve been connected to Seagate since then when Melody and I first met. Before coming back to the Troon area in 2018, we spent nearly 5 years in Oban where I worked as a PE teacher and Guidance Teacher, and we were part of leading a youth discipleship group.

I played football for many years although you’re now more likely to find me on the golf course or out running!

I have been the pastor of Seagate Church in Troon since August 2014. I am married to my lovely wife Heather and God has blessed with the gift of two beautiful girls, Lucy and Niamh.

Originally from the beautiful country of Northern Ireland I came to Scotland for university in Dundee – where Heather and I met.

Before becoming pastor of the church I completed the Cornhill Training course part-time while working in Glasgow as a solicitor at the same time.

I am absolutely committed to continuing to grow Seagate Church as a loving, Christ centred, God glorifying community of Christians who have been saved by grace and who passionately desire to share the Good News of the Gospel with the wider community here in Troon.

One of my usual haunts in Troon is Lido (right beside the church) and I am always happy to meet with people for a chat and a coffee anytime.

Please just feel free to call or email me and arrange a time to meet.
