Once upon a time, I did things my way… then I learned to trust and obey my Heavenly Father!
Who Am I?
I am a 65-year-old Englishman, born in Croydon, who lived most of my life in Colchester but now live in York. In 2018 I married Ruth (an amazing Christian lady) and we fellowship at St Barnabas Church, York, and Calvary Chapel York. Previously a divorcee and a widower, I have four children, a step child and eight grandchildren from my previous marriages. I worked in catering, wholesale and retail management and was a qualified Mental Health Nurse. I am now retired.
I accepted Jesus into my life when I was eighteen. I picked up a hitchhiker who was brave enough to share their faith. At a subsequent meeting I was encouraged to personally accept Jesus as my saviour. I asked Jesus to forgive me of my sins, to take my life into His hands and to become Lord of my life. My life changed, forever.
What Am I Doing?
During 2016-2017 I was a mature student at a Calvary Chapel Bible College York in England. I undertook further studies with King’s Evangelical Divinity School and obtained an MA in theology. I am now the Churchwarden at St Barnabas York.
The LORD led me to go to Bible College through the verse in Psalm 119:11 Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You. (NKJV). I am so glad that I did because it set me on a path. I am learning not only about the scriptures, doctrine and theology (knowledge of the Word of God) but how to draw closer to the LORD, who by His grace, continues to deal with issues in my heart.
but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen. (2 Peter 3:18)
