1. How long have you been coming to KEC?
I have been coming to KEC for 25 years with my wife and four children.
2. What team do you volunteer in?
I volunteer on the tech team as stage manager. Each year, I sit in a small chair, in a dark place, at the side of the stage to listen to God’s Word being spoken, expounded and applied. It is humbling serving with a team of people who are so talented, and yet so unassuming.
3. What is your most memorable moment of KEC?
The first time I heard Frank Retif speak at KEC. During his talk, he asked everyone to stand up and close their eyes, as he spoke about the presence of Jesus. It was spine tingling. Many people afterward spoke of the sense of Jesus being there amongst us. One person who is very close to me said they saw Jesus standing before them. I felt an overwhelming sense of his presence. It was wonderful, emotional and awe inspiring to know that God was amongst us.
I also attend KEC to fellowship with close friends and many other delegates. Over the years we have seen children grow into adults with children, and seen God working in people’s lives. As a volunteer I have met in person, many different godly people from Australia and all the over the world.
4. Why do you volunteer at KEC?
I volunteer because I see it as a privilege to serve God at KEC, and I am so grateful that he accepts my meagre offering of service. When I reflect on how God has and does work in my life, it is overwhelming. His grace is sufficient for me.
God commands us to go forth into the nation's spreading the gospel to all corners of the earth. I have had the amazing (tear-inducing at times) privilege of having people from all different nations come to me to speak and expound God’s almighty Word. Why wouldn't I volunteer when the creator of the universe has given me incredible insights into Himself?
