Bending and Breaking

Lay Leaders
in Small Churches


Lay leaders in small churches can have a really tough time surviving let alone serving. Let me help you find ways to apply your theology and skills more effectively in your situation.


Each episode we’ll look deeply at a topic, explore ideas and tease out implications for living. If you’re finding the podcast a bit hard to follow, check out my videos for visual aids.

Training & Mentoring

I find a lot of joy in training others in whatever ways I can and mentoring them to help them to follow God closely in all seasons of life. If you’re interested in working with me click through to learn more. 


Various ministry related resources I’ve developed over the years.
They might come in handy one day.

Bending & Breaking came about when John was a student minister at St John’s Maroubra. He realised he wanted to start something to support keen lay-leaders in under-resourced churches out in Western Sydney. John went on to graduate from Sydney Missionary & Bible College with a Bachelor of Theology and a Master of Arts (Ministry), specialising in mentoring and training. His Master’s thesis focussed on discipleship in the book of Proverbs. He is currently serving as the Minister at HPCC part-time and spends the rest of the week creating resources for this ministry.
