“To be here with the silence of Sonship in my heart is to be a center in which all things converge upon You.” 

- Thomas Merton



I was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and lived there until 2009, when I moved to New Zealand. I now live in Taupo with my wife Becky who is from the Bay of Plenty region of New Zealand. We have two children, Jacob (born in 2011) and Jessie (born in 2013).


In 2007 I had a major crisis of faith and burned out in what I believed was a mature and radical Christianity. I came to the Inheriting the Nations retreat in New Zealand in 2008 and met James and Denise Jordan. What I heard and experienced profoundly altered my understanding of Christianity and how I lived my life.


I returned to the INS as a staff member in 2009, and have been with the Fatherheart Ministries team in Taupo since 2010, working closely with James and Denise Jordan and Mark Head.


It is now a new season. This is what the future will look like for me:


  • To continue to write books within this Fatherheart revelation.

  • I have released the books Freedom from ReligionJohn - A Prophetic Revelation , as well as other books,vavailable on Amazon and Amazon Kindle. New Zealand readers can purchase directly from me.

  • I am currently in the process of writing further revelatory books based on books in the Bible from a Fatherheart perspective.


  • To teach on Fatherheart Ministries events; in particular B Schools, Inheriting the Nations School, The ‘Becoming a People’ Gathering and whatever doors God opens to me.

  • To develop contemplative retreats on the spirituality of sonship.



  • To enable people to live out sonship in life, in creation and in every calling. To break down the ‘sacred- secular’ divide and release revelation for every area of life.

  • To function as a prophetic ‘spiritual director’ in the lives of people.

  • To continue to work closely with the leadership of Fatherheart Ministries.

  • To see new doors open through anointed networking.

  • To be part of spiritual community building

  • To see new wineskins emerge which will release sons and daughters into the fulness of who they are meant
    to be.
