  • BSc, MDiv, DMin

Clint is responsible for growing Laidlaw’s reputation and trustworthiness as a College for the formation of Christian leaders, within Aotearoa but focused in Christchurch. This involves facilitating engagement between Laidlaw College and churches, contributing to the Pastoral Leadership Specialisation Supervisory Team and engaging with students in this stream. He also contributes to the teaching of courses in the Practical Theology suite, particularly in the areas of leadership and formation. 

Clint holds degrees from Princeton Theological Seminary (MDiv) where his studies focused primarily on missional theology before continuing doctoral work at Asbury Theological Seminary (DMin). Clint’s doctoral research, anchored in biblical wisdom, explored the exercise of intuitive wisdom among ministry leaders in New Zealand and identified ways in which intuitive wisdom capabilities might be developed. 

Clint is an ordained minister of the Wesleyan Methodist Church of New Zealand and has served as the  Lead Pastor of The Well Church (Christchurch) since its inception in 2012. Clint is married to Jamie and they have two daughters. Together, Clint & Jamie have served in ministry for 20 years - they are passionate about seeing people encounter Jesus personally and being released into the unique Kingdom calling on their lives. Clint loves to travel and experience different cultures, is an avid runner, and loves music - playing, listening, and watching.
