Dr. Thwaites is an internationally recognized pastor and author from Sydney, Australia. He serves as an elder at Manly Village Church, which was formed in 1999 when two local congregations from opposite ends of the cultural and theological spectrum decided to overcome their differences and worship together.

He has written and spoken extensively on the place of the church in the postmodern world and has taught at Hillsong International Leadership College and the Wagner Leadership Institute. He is author of The Church Beyond the Congregation and Renegotiating the Church Contract. His work is packed with timely reminders and exhortations for those “who seek a new vision for the church in the third millennium.”
