I became a Christian whilst at University and, during the summer break, travelled to Italy with Operation Mobilisation. I joined their ships Logos and Doulos, and spent five years visiting many countries and encouraging local churches. I’ve been married to Rachel for 30 years and we have two adult children and three grandchildren (so we are childminding regularly!) For twenty years I worked in a Day centre for adults with learning disabilities – many of whom have multiple and profound disabilities. I am now semi-retired, which is ideal for my eldership responsibilities. I’m involved in Bible teaching and corporate prayer on a regular basis , and my wife and I lead Worship together.
