I am married to The Revd Dr Donna Lazenby. We have twin boys who are full of life and way too much energy. In the ‘secular’ world I was a manager of a business in London for 16 years where innovation and an entrepreneurial spirit were promoted and seen as the norm.
My ministry within the Church has embraced many traditions, ages, backgrounds, cultures, and locations. I have been a licensed Reader, a Parish Priest, a Church Planter, an Area Director of Ordinands in Southwark Diocese. I have launched many Fresh Expressions of Church (across traditions). I have been a Consultant Pioneer Priest for the Diocese of Truro, helping to plant a Network of Resource Churches across Cornwall to revitalise mission and ministry and to renew the witness of the Church for this generation. I have facilitated Bishop Ric Thorpe’s Church Planting Course for Exeter Diocese, and Truro Diocese. As a Digital Evangelist I have enabled many Churches and a number of Dioceses to consider Digital Technology as a tool for evangelism.
I am a member of the Archbishop’s College of Evangelists and am the founder of the God Stories Today YouTube Channel. I am also a Church Growth Coach and I have worked alongside various Churches of many traditions, in London Diocese and enabled them to plan for growth: I am called to enable growth across God’s Church, and to equip its outreach in the 21st Century. It is my deepest desire to see development and growth that embraces the whole Church and the whole people of God.
