I grew up as a child of the manse and gave my life to Jesus when I was 11. At 15 I received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and at 30 I had an encounter with the Lord that changed my life as he led me into a deeper relationship of intimacy with him.
For several years I attended Prayer School, a place of discipleship and revelation that taught me the importance of worship, prayer and the Bible, which has remained with me ever since. I believe that worship is a lifestyle, not just something that is done for an hour on a Sunday morning, and it involves every single part of our lives. I long for people to come into a knowledge of who they are in Christ and to develop a hunger and passion for Jesus; to see them discipled and released into all they can be as they come into a deeper place of intimacy with him, and to know the heart peace that only he can bring.
I never expected God to call me into the ministry – far from it. My place at church was always at the back or out the back, but God had other plans. I have now been in the Coventry and Nuneaton Circuit for 4 years – 2 of which were as a probationer and it is a privilege to be here, serving the Lord and his people.
I am married to a wonderful man who has spent his whole life working alongside the marginalised in society and we have two grown-up children and a son-in-law.
