Ardie Bea is a ‘net name’ I use on the web to protect my and my family’s privacy, and I use it here so that if you’ve met me elsewhere on the web, you’ll know whose page this is when you get here. Those who’ve come here from other sites where I’m known by my actual name know who I am (from those sites, anyway) and so you don’t need any introduction! For the rest of you, I’m the husband of one fantastic wife, father of 6 increasingly extraordinary children, and pastor of a small and very beautiful church in a little town in Aotearoa / New Zealand. We’re on the edge between hills, sea, and sky. I love it.
