Trevor and Andrea work with Gothenburg International Church. Trevor is part of the preaching team at the church and both Trevor and Andrea are involved with evangelistic activities, youth work, children's camps, ministry to refugees and one-to-one bible reading.
Trevor is also developping a preaching conference ministry - Equipped:Sweden - as part of a growing Swedish gospel partnership. Through this he hopes to encourage a return to gospel-centred expository preaching in a country where fewer and fewer churches have the Bible at the heart of their ministry.
Trevor and Andrea have three children: Emily, Grace and Alice.

‘I will surely go with you. Nevertheless, the road on which you are going will not lead to your glory.’ Judges 4:9
In Judges 4, Barak has heard God’s word through the prophetess Deborah. He’s been commissioned to lead Israel into battle against Sisera’s cruel and oppressive army. Barak responds that he will go if Deborah goes with him. She agrees and then cautions him that the victory that God will give, won’t lead to Barak’s glory because ‘the Lord will sell Sisera into the hand of a woman.’ Cue everyone’s nightmare camping companion, Jael with her hammer and tent-peg! Of course, the purpose of this rather strange choice of ‘salvation strategy’ is not so that Jael would get the glory instead of Barak, but that God would get the glory that is rightfully his. Traditionally Barak is criticised for his hesitancy and even cowardice. But who did he want to go with him? Answer, Deborah, the one who spoke God’s word. And once he had that assurance, he went in faithful obedience and did all that God had commanded. We could therefore conclude that Barak was a man who heard God’s word and obeyed God’s word, but it was God who got the glory.
