Max, together with his wife Dorothy, have been based in the Philippines since the late 1970s.
Max and Dorothy founded the organization Living Springs International (LSI) in response to a clear call to help mobilize the Filipino Church towards cross-cultural ministry to unreached peoples. Together with their Filipino team they produced the Kairos Course, a mission mobilization course, designed for local churches and Christian organizations.
With help from a growing international team, the Kairos Course is now in its fourth edition and being used throughout the Philippines and in more than seventy countries around the world.
Of recent, Max has provided leadership for the development of the Simply Mobilizing movement that focuses on; the mobilization of all God’s people towards meaningful involvement in the world Christian movement and on; assisting local church and church leadership to equip God’s people for effective service in today’s world.
Aided by a very competent national and international team Max and Dorothy continue to produce multiple mobilization programs and encouragement to the training of mobilizers and the growth of the mobilization movement.
Max and Dorothy come from New Zealand. They have two children and five grandchildren.
