Revival in the Outback

There’s been a quiet fire burning in the hearts of many people in remote towns and communities these past few years. I’ve seen some desert communities completely turn from the hopelessness of depression, addiction and gambling to choosing God’s way. Turning from the curse of death to the hope of life in Jesus. From the bondage of religious condemnation to the freedom of knowing Christ. 

I’ve had people over the past few years request songs that have helped them in in their own revival journey. Ironically some of those songs are old Gospel songs and hymns from the times of slavery in American history. Songs that have stood the test of time and inspired faith for generations. Its some of these songs I’d love to record on the new album… Songs of revival. 

But I’ve learned that real revival doesn’t always happen in a big noisy crowd… it happens in the heart… one heart at a time. It happens with humble repentance that makes way for renewal and restoration. God delights to revive us in our walk with Him.

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
— Psalm 51:10-12

We are very excited to announce that I will be stepping back into the studio to record a new album project. We plan to record August 10-17th at Watershed Studios in Nashville, TN. 

Pray with me as we seek the Lord and prepare for this venture. Financially we are half way there with the expected budget but know God in His faithfulness will provide. We know these songs are an integral part of the coming seasons of evangelism and ministry leading into 2020.

I am praying for revival in regions across Australia… and it starts with us. 

Thanks for your friendship and faithful prayers.

The Spirit of the ANZAC's and Eternity

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
— John 15:13 (NIV)

Eternity Truck design by Steve Grace

It’s been 100 years since the end of the great war. A war that devastated the world and saw millions of lives lost. One survivor of that war was an Australian soldier, Arthur Stace… He returned home to Australia but became an alcoholic on the streets of Sydney. After his profound conversion to Christ he began to write the word ‘Eternity’ on footpaths and walls to remind people of their eternal destiny. He wrote that one word over 500,000 times in his humble crusade to reach people with the Gospel.

Today we honour Arthur Stace. We honour the ANZAC’s 100 years on from their battle for freedom. And we share a vision to keep the legacy alive across Australia. Our vision is for the Eternity Truck. A mobile concert stage that will be used to proclaim the Good News for many years to come.

It started out as a Tee shirt design but we now realise God has far more in mind for this image. We want to reach Australian’s with the Good News. We want to see people set free from sin and addictions and despair. We’ve set up a fund raising account for the vision of the Eternity Truck. Help us make this dream a reality.

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
— Galatians 5:1

Seed Time and Harvest

His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.
— 2 Peter 1:3

Hang out with a farmer for a day and you get it. This walk of faith in dry times. Farmers do their best to feed the world. Unpredictable weather systems and climate changes are all part of the challenge to produce a harvest in due season. There are no guarantees. It is an expression of faith and determination every year as a farmer plants new crops in a field.

But it says a lot about life and who we are as well. Live your life sewing good seed into others, believing in others, supporting those who are out there going for it for God. When we take small steps of generous faith God turns up and provides so much more. Keep loving and serving people like Jesus does. You can’t go wrong.

Farming families across Australia have been forced to plant seed into dry ground again this year as the early season rains have not yet come. It takes great faith to invest so much into the land at this time and yet its that faith that eventually produces a harvest later in the year. And whether a crop is bountiful or fails, God’s faithfulness remains the same. He is at work in our lives as we seek first His Kingdom and righteousness.

And to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.
— Ephesian 3:19-20

Thanks for your prayers and ongoing support.



For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

Romans 1:20

Like a work of abstract art the fractured surface of earth in an Australian desert clay pan says so much of who we are. We are made from the dust and the soil of this earth. We do our best to portray a tough impenetrable exterior…. Yet just beneath the surface there is moisture. There is a heart seeking rain that will bring life. I am amazed that most of our country Australia would not survive if it were not for the waters that come from beneath the ground. There are oceans of pure water beneath the sunburned hardened landscape of this land. A desert continent full of life and beauty. This is Australia. 

This is a reflection of you and me. And yes… We can become hardened and bitter… or we can choose to stay humble and sweet. But we can’t be both.

Be expectant of drought breaking rain in your life… the kind of rain that comes from the giver of life, the God of all creation. Don’t give up and become hardened to it all. He is with you and He has a way… sometimes it just takes longer than we want it to. Choose to be sweet and not bitter.  

Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.

James 3:11-12

Thanks for your prayers and support.

We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labour prompted by love and your endurance inspired by hope in the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Sunday before last I was singing at the Sydney Opera House. This last weekend I had the honour of singing at the Anglican and Uniting Church in Minnipa on the Eyre Peninsula, South Australia. Pastor Tim Coleman gave a great word from the book of Acts about the journey of faith we are called to take. He’s a pentecostal Pastor with a great vision for the entire region. People from various denominations of church attended and everyone bought a plate of food or a pavlova or cake. Lunch was a literal feast as James, a local sheep shearer cooked up the best BBQ steaks and chicken this side of the border. Life can be pretty tough in these parts, especially if the rains don’t come… but people are honest and real. They are generous and full of faith, They sing loud and they drive long distances to enjoy the fellowship of church family. There is a sweet spirit in these little churches that can sometimes be lost in the rush of life in big cities. I’ve learned to really appreciate it over the years. 

If your walk with God is all about programs and deadlines and schedules… maybe its time to go for a long drive and spend a Sunday in a little country church out bush.

Thanks for your friendship and interest in our mission.



Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither — whatever they do prospers.
– Psalm 1:1-3

There’s something so powerfully inspiring about trees. They enable planet earth to breathe new oxygen, yet for as long as men and women have walked the earth they have provided timber for homes and warmth for every winter since our Genesis beginnings. Trees are a spectacular part of God’s creation.

When our delight is in pursuing God’s law of love and grace, we are like a tree planted firmly by streams of water. Water in the Bible is symbolic of the presence of the Holy Spirit and our desire should be that the fruits of the Spirit are seen in our lives with every new season. That’s what real prosperity is… its not about becoming wealthy and influential and successful in the world’s eyes. It's about knowing who you are in Christ and living every day honouring Him. His laws are profoundly simple; Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind and love people as much as you love yourself. I like that!

Thanks for travelling with us.



Praise to the Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago.

– Isaiah 25:1 –

We’ve had a crazy few weeks and had to trust the Lord for His 'new thing' as we prepare to set out on tour for a few months.  The Sunliner Tour trailer we’ve used for the past few years finally gave in to the ordeals of Australian roads. The chassis was broken beyond repair and was written off by our insurance company. Initially this was devastating but we realise it may end up being a blessing. It’s all part of the journey of faith and the adventure of serving God.

Thank you so much for your continued interest in the work we are doing across Australia. We are quietly excited that we are entering a new season of revival and restoration for many towns and communities across our nation. 

"Forget the former things;  do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland."

– Isaiah 43:18-19 –

Thank you for your support.

Honouring a Humble Hero

He reached more people in his lifetime than any other person in history. His message was simple and real.. His message was Jesus.. I will never forget the time I met Billy Graham with my wife Kerrie. Backstage at a major evangelistic crusade in Alburqueque, New Mexico. It was May 1998 and I’d been invited by Franklin Graham to sing to the massive crowd that filled the football stadium. It was an historic event and one of the final Evangelistic Rallies that Dr Graham would be preaching at after decades behind the microphone and public events in nations across the globe.

The remarkable thing about Billy Graham was his down to earth approachability and genuine care in every conversation. He had an unconditional love for all people’s. He probably did more to empower oppressed people groups and bring hope to civil rights than any other man of his time. His message bought real revival to nations in the post WWll years, including Australia… a country he had a great love for. 

For Kerrie and I it was such a privilege to meet Billy Graham and his family. That North Carolina spirit of hospitality is very authentic.. It was like catching up with an old mate as he reflected on his many memories of missions to Australia. 

Our prayer is that millions more will take on the heart, passion and convictions that compelled Billy Graham to bring the good news to a lost and dying world. THANK YOU BILLY.
