I was born in November 1949. However, it was as a 13 year old that I first found Christ as my Saviour. I attended a Baptist church in Fakenham, and found Norfolk was to present opportunities to preach - almost immediately after my conversion - in the open air in some of the surrounding Norfolk villages. I preached my first in-church sermon in a Railway Mission in Melton Constable, still only 15.
I was discovering that God had a work for me to do and, although in so many areas I felt lacking and inadequate, I was joyfully discovering that God had a purpose for my life, and a work for me to do.
At 17 years, I sensed clearly God's call to full time ministry, but it was to be 23 years later that the door opened for that. The Lord spoke about a big work in store that would involve speaking to crowds; but I never really took that in. While waiting, there were many doors of service, including spare and part time pastoring. Although waiting for full time ministry was difficult, I knew that God had called me and had impressed upon me, as a teenager, the scriptures from 1 Peter 5 and 2 Timothy 4.
The door through which I entered full time ministry was to prove a great challenge, and it was totally unexpected when the Lord took me to Africa in November 1994. He told me He was to do a "new thing". This "new thing", I discovered, would be working with many churches in the UK rather than pastoring a church. This would support ministry in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda, and has included Spain, New Jersey and Chicago. It involves writing to over hundreds of pastors and leaders, making television programmes and radio programmes.
Sending Bible studies, teaching tapes and arranging seminars for pastors are all now a big part of my life. Most importantly, the new thing involves my wife Elaine, and the boys. Their love and support is invaluable. We hope you enjoy learning about Living Hope Ministries from this website, and that you will keep visiting it to see how the work is progressing.
