Personally, from a leadership perspective, I also appreciated hearing about Brian’s pastoral background, as he shared from some of his pastoral experience.’
Rev Nick McLennan, Minister Mahurangi Presbyterian Church

I’m very happy to commend him and his ministry to you.’

They relate incredibly well to any age group and have left our Nexus women with a rich deposit of wanting to live life to the fullest!’
