Desi Maxwell is a minister of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland. About four years ago he, and his wife Heather, established Xplorations, a teaching ministry devoted to promoting understanding through an awareness of the Jewish context of the Bible. As part of this ministry Desi teaches every Thursday at the House of Vic-Ryn on the Moira Road, Lisburn and leads study tours to Israel twice every year.

Xplorations is a Bible teaching ministry modelled on the risen Lord's instruction of His disciples on the Emmaus Road.

Their aim is:

  • To present Christ from all the Scriptures.
  • To inform, enthuse and encourage people through teaching.
  • To help believers grow in appreciation of where we all fit into God's big plan.
  • To serve God's people wherever there is a readiness to explore God's Word.
  • To promote a deeper understanding of the text by creating an awareness of the Jewish background.
