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, eight 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.
Ministry update December 2015
On January 9th I have been invited to speak at a workshop on "Grief" hosted by Celebrate Recovery - a local Christian program for people with addictions.
The Thursday evening Bible studies continue with good attendance. Just beginning a new series - Messianic Prophecies of he Old Testament
I have also been teaching our Young Adults group, sharing the teaching with their pastor. That has been very encouraging as they make me so welcome - and provide a good meal each week!
Our first men's retreat Nov 20th-22nd went quite well (from my perspective!). 14 men attended as I spoke on "Revival". I gave account of the Welsh Revival (1904/5), the Hebrides Revival (1949) and the Saskatoon Revival (1971) with the hope that it might stimulate men to earnestly pray for a similar outpouring in our city and churches.
The men's music group continues to be a blessing.

Quote of the month: (see Quotable quotes page - renewed June 2015)
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!
That You should love me as You do and be the God Thou art, is darkness to my intellect but sunshine to my soul.
