Have you ever come to the place where today’s reality matched yesterday’s prayers?
When that does not happen, it can be frustrating.
Disappointment can set in.
The feeling of being stuck and not being able to progress.
I have been there.
As I changed my focus to growing a healthy church, things changed.
We got some ‘medical’ advice and moved on in the right direction.
I can help you do the same.
Get the passion back, get some advice and progress, with a fresh set of eyes.

I have 12 years of pastoral experience.
As Lead Pastor at C3 Rivers Church (Arnhem, The Netherlands) I led our church from a campus church of 45 members to a full member church with 450 members, in two locations. We are currently in the process of starting a third and fourth location as well as acquiring our own building. I am also on the leadership team of C3 Church Europe.
In 2016 and 2017 I engaged John Finkelde as a Grow a Healthy Church consultant, which led to significant growth and health in my personal leadership as well as in the life of our church. Being bivocational by nature, I became a GAHC consultant for Europe/UK in 2020.
I have an Advanced Diploma in Leadership from Hillsong College and an Undergraduate Degree in Econometrics and Operational Research from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
I have been married for 12 years and have two sons and a daughter. I am the author of The Norman Factor (Printopya, USA), a book about a life and death scenario my wife and I went through and the supernatural lessons I learned through it.
