How Long at Kings?
I was born again in 1978 at the age of 28 and have been coming to Penwortham Free Methodist Church since 2012. In 1992 I boarded a plane to Russia with a suitcase full of New Testaments and a desire to seek out underground believers to give them both spiritual and financial support. I visited Russia three times that year, and as well as meeting with members of an underground church, on two occasions I was able to share the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in school assemblies.
Role at Kings Church
My role at King’s Church is to develop discipleship. I am building up a team that disciples new believers through bible study and friendship and my long term goal is to see every member of our church becoming involved in discipleship through their own spiritual development and the discipling of others. I believe that everyone has a God given role to play in the body of Christ and that through discipleship each one will discover what that is.
