I always had a belief in God but only in a ‘I haven’t done any revision so I’ll pray before the exam in case it works’ sort of way.
I went along to Church as a teenager because there were girls there (I ended up marrying one of them). Then when I saw how two Christian school friends lived their life, heard that Jesus loved me and had done something amazing for me, my life changed.
I have led many church evangelism strategies and initiatives, worked in retail and studied for a theology degree at Oak Hill Theological College. I have been a Youth Minister, a RE teacher, a member of church preaching and leadership teams and part of Elim’s national evangelism team. After many years working in education with teenagers who have been excluded from mainstream school, I am now the Safeguarding Officer at a secondary school in Essex. I am part of Life Church in Chelmsford and am their ‘Mission Champion’ to encourage and equip them to help people encounter Jesus.
I don’t want to be like a gunslinging cowboy (although I did when I was a child): riding in, firing some things off and disappearing. I want to work with churches in their context, to help enable their long term evangelism. I am an enthusiast, an evangelism evangelist, not an expert: only God can save people’s lives.
Please note: as I am currently working fulltime I am not charging but appreciate any donation. This also means that my availability is mainly during evenings and weekends.
