Sam leads the CAP team, committed to providing the very best to the people CAP serves. He brought his skills to CAP in 2014, following a season in the recruitment industry. Sam has ‘lived’ and ‘learned’ experiences of the complexities of poverty. As such, he’s committed to attuning to what the Lord is doing in this land — and the role for CAP to play — as the organisation enables followers of Jesus to play their parts in ending money chaos in Aotearoa. Sam and his wife Ari live in Auckland, with their three children. They escape for adventures in the water, beach or bush whenever they can!
