Paul is married to Jocelyn and they have three daughters.
Paul started his camping life at Totara Springs in 1990 as a camping cadet. Four years later he moved to Nelson and took over the job of running
Teapot Valley which he continues to do today.
Paul is passionate about camping and strongly believes in the life changing opportunities it brings to those that spend time in the unique setting
of a Christian Camp. Camping to Paul is about what we can do together in NZ and then together throughout the world. It is many people at great
sites all working towards a common goal. Paul is committed to CCNZ and is excited about the potential that is just over the horizon and leading
CCNZ into the future.

Lynne and I returned from an 18-year stint in Australia in late 2003 and have settled in the Tauranga area. Lynne and I have three sons, two of
them live in Sydney and one lives here in Tauranga. Most of our siblings from both of our families now live in this area, so we are enjoying
once again being close to them. We were introduced to ‘Christian Camping’ in Australia where I held positions with the Salvation Army’s ‘Collaroy
Centre’ on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. I started in a housekeeping supervisor’s role, with a duty manager component in my contract. Then after
a couple of years as assistant manager I became operations/facilities manager under the directorship of Ken Heffernan. I managed a staff of
30+ and an operational budget of 2 million +. In 2000 the site was seconded by the Sydney Olympic committee to host nearly 500 bus drivers.
As we only had 380 beds we were hot bunking the drivers and running the kitchen and dining areas on a 24-hour basis. Our linen requirements
were so large we converted one of our conference rooms into a linen room. Our return to New Zealand was for family reasons as both sets of
parents were getting older, so when I secured the job at Pacific Park it was a great fit for us. We felt like we had come home in more ways
than one. Lynne works in a full time roll here at camp and we both enjoy and thrive in these positions. Pacific Park is run as a Christian
Camp/Holiday Park and therefore requires a very robust business model to survive. We belong to two industry bodies ‘CCNZ & HAPNZ’. From
both bodies, we have received a wealth of industry
knowledge, resources and experience which we greatly appreciate.
Christian camps are so valuable for New Zealand’s young people and will continue to help shape our youth and future leaders. Important issues are,
the robustness of our business models as camps, developing and protecting the sense of ‘This is God’s work’ and being a point of contact for
many unchurched New Zealanders. This is very important to me and as I see ‘Christian Camping’ as a body that must continue to be supported
and resourced, I would consider it a privilege to work with CCNZ, to help this continue to happen.
