Early in their marriage, Phil and Bron spent 3 years working with YWAM in a Dilaram house ministry in New Delhi. Over the past 30 years they have pastored churches, run an alcohol detox programme and lead short term missions. They are passionate about biblical preaching and activating the church in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. They have had many years of ministry experience and of training and discipling people. Phil has a strong prophetic gifting.  Bron is also passionate about preaching and is experienced in pastoral care and counselling. Their hearts are to see people fully alive and walking in the freedom that was purchased for them at the cross.
