I am a pastor’s kid, one of seven siblings. I made my personal commitment to the Lord just before I left school at fifteen and served my time as an apprentice in the steel works.
I met my future wife Sandra in a Saturday night open air service and we have three children, nine grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
After serving as Sunday School teacher and deacon in my local church I became an accredited minister in the Assemblies of God and pastored four churches starting in Liverpool and ending in Colchester.
After my retirement and diagnosis of cancer my wife and I returned to Sheffield and for seven years organised a regular fellowship and holiday for retired ministers and their spouses.
