I was brought up in a Christian home and my father became a church minister while I was young and at age 10 I gave my heart to the Lord Jesus. As I finished my schooling I sensed a call to ministry. My wife, our two young sons and I left for Missionary Training College in 1977 and then went to medical missionary work in Zaire (now D.R. of Congo). Following the birth of our daughter who was seriously ill and disabled, we returned to UK and I went back to the nursing profession later becoming a Nurse Teacher.
In 1990 we joined an Elim Pentecostal church in our home town of St Helens and 5 years later I was accepted for the ministry, becoming Senior Minister in 2002 of the St Helens Christian Life Centre. In 2021 I retired from salaried ministry having begun the SixThirtythree podcasting ministry in my final year.
Matthew 6.33 has been my life-verse since my mid-twenties and continues to be my driving force for all my ministry.
