Bev and Lew married in 1973 and have three adult children and six grandchildren.
We have been involved in church leadership for many years and sending and care of missionaries from our church.
In the 1980’s we went, with our family, to Auckland for three years residential study at Bible College of New Zealand (BCNZ). While Lew studied full time, Bev studied part time completing a Certificate of the College.
On our return from Bible College we were appointed community workers to establish and co-ordinate a community ministry, Feilding Care Link, offering practical assistance to individuals and families, including an Emergency House.
Lew was involved in Industrial Chaplaincy for a number of years in several different work places.
Bev trained as a counsellor at Bible College of New Zealand (Manawatu Branch) and for thirteen years was counselling within a community agency. She was ACC registered for Sensitive claims and Family Court Approved.
Bev also was an adjunct teacher at BCNZ Manawatu Branch teaching Pastoral Care in the Certificate program.
In 2011 we both completed the ‘Spiritual Directors Formation Program’ through SGM.
We enjoy travel; having a daughter married and living in England (and two grandchildren) has introduced us to this exciting venture - travelling to a number of different countries.
We also enjoy walking, camping and gardening (when in the mood!)
