Lay Leader - Discipleship and Mission (including Local and International)
I grew up in Birmingham and came to know the Lord when I was aged 18. My wife Stella and I have been married for 39 years and we have two grown up children. We have lived in Streatham for over 25 years and we have been members at Lewin for over 10 years. My work has been mainly on International Development with the UK government, Tearfund and more recently as a consultant. I lived for two years in Malawi, where I met Stella, and three years in Bangladesh, when our children were young.
I travel a lot with my work and also visiting family, including my mother in the Midlands. In 2010, I co-founded Restored, a Christian charity working to end violence against women. I have filled a range of senior management roles and have experience as a trustee with Turkic Belt Ministries and as a Council member for the Evangelical Alliance. I was a church leader in Bonneville Baptist Church (Clapham Park) and Bedford Hill Baptist Church for a total of more than fifteen years.
I have a heart to see the church reaching out to our communities in Streatham and to see people growing as disciples in a systematic way. I am therefore excited by the mission and discipleship role on the leadership team. I am also keen to see Lewin grow in prayer, in our vision for the world and in our encouragement of younger people to take a more active role in the life and leadership of the church.
