Kia ora everyone,
I live in the beautiful Bay of Plenty in New Zealand, although I am originally from Auckland, NZ.
I joined Connect after I completed the Core Module in 2017/18. It took me a few goes as I worked full time as a Library Manager whilst studying.
I wanted to join Connect as I love Apologetics. I had not heard of this discipline for most of my Christian life and when I finally did start to learn about it, I was hooked. To me it has been the missing link in my confidence to share my faith.
I have recently joined the team at Thinking Matters, a New Zealand based apologetics ministry, as their Events Director, and I also write articles for our website and speak at some events - which as an introvert was something I never dreamed I would do!
I am not sure how I will contribute, but I will where I can. I love the RZIM heart, where people are more important than an argument. We are living in such precarious, anti-Christian times, but I am excited by all that the Lord will do through a lovingly but solidly equipped Church. Light always shines brightest in the darkness.
If there are other Kiwi’s here in Connect, please let me know!
