In 1991, he was invited to serve as pastor on board the M/V Anastasis, a medical, missionary ship operated by Youth With A Mission (YWAM). Since leaving that ministry four years later, Gareth has traveled to many countries, encouraging pastors and missionaries.
He has moderated at conferences on Revival, in the USA, Canada and Europe.
He is married to Anne and they have three married daughters, nine grandchildren and three great grandchildren. Gareth and Anne live in Victoria, in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

On this webpage you will find some of the topics he teaches, listen to some mp3 sermons, view some photos, read some poetry and, hopefully, be encouraged and blessed.
First, however, please read the latest newsletter.
Update July 2015
Since arriving back home in beautiful BC, I have continued my teaching sessions each Thursday evening. My most recent teaching has been on the epistles of John and on Divine Healing (see my 'Teachings' page). I also teach a small group of students, bi-weekly at the local university. My experince in Brisbane with the male voice choir has motivated me to start a small male voice group at my local church. This is an exciting time for me as I always delight in male voice quartets, group singing.
Both Anne's and my health are good - her oncologist told her not to report to him again for three years and my doctor told me "Gareth, you have remarkably good health!" PTL!
August 27th: We are sad to announce that our oldest grand-daughter Tasha passed away on Friday, August 21st suddenly and unexpectedly, at her home. The coroner's report is inconclusive as no cause can be determined as yet. We have remarkable peace at this time but concern for her devastated partner as he does not know our Prince of Peace. More info later on my next newsletter.

Quote of the month: (see Quotable quotes page - renewed June 2015)
The man who would know God must give time to Him. He must count no time wasted that is spent in the cultivation of His acquaintance. Tozer
Remember: Those who follow Him "afar off" can still keep their eyes on Jesus - but those who go one step ahead of Him, lose all sight of Him and walk in their own shadows.
"May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Glory, give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him."Eph 1:17
"That You should love me as You do and be the God Thou art, is darkness to my intellect - but sunshine to my heart!" - unknown
