Frog has an unusual name, the reasons for which are lost in family memory. After Graduating from Oxford University, where he studied theology, met Amy and after spending some time in the City of London as a stockbroker, studied some more theology and then worked as the Curate of St Aldates Church in Oxford. Then followed seven eventful years in central London, leading All Saints Church, Peckham. During this time the church experienced rapid growth, and pioneered new initiatives in community engagement, local transformation, youthwork and mission.
Frog and Amy founded Latimer Minster in 2010, and bought Stampwell Farm in 2012.
With Amy, he is co-author of ‘Deep’, ‘Holy Warriors’ and ‘Millennials’; His academic interests are in Missiology, The Arts and Christian witness and Victorian Christianity, and he has taught at universities in London and Oxford. His PhD is in Victorian Missionary impact on the Anglican Church, and the history of All Saints Peckham. Since 2010 he has been Rector of Latimer Minster, and he teaches Missiology at University of Winchester where he is the Post-Doctoral Fellow in Mission, and Canon Theologian of Winchester.
Frog and Amy have three energetic sons; Zachary, Elijah and Benjamin.
