Ministry and Mission Background

Humanitarian Aid
Humanitarian Aid

Greg's teaching ministry and evangelistic work started as a young convert in Preston, Lancashire where he worked as a Police Officer. He soon had the joy of leading a small number of people to Christ in the South Ribble area of Preston.

He also had the joy of seeing other young people come to faith through the setting up of a coffee bar outreach in the town centre of Preston. As a Police Constable he had many opportunities to share his faith with others including a man charged with murder who gave his life to Christ and on release from prison joined the Salvation Army.

He was also encouraged to minister through the youth policy of North Road Pentecostal Church and met his wife Sue who was a member of the Church. It was whilst ministering he discovered his call to Bible College and studied firstĀ at Birmingham Bible Institute and later at St Martin's College, Lancaster.

On leaving College he spent ten years as a Pentecostal Minister and Church Planter. He started Penwortham Community of Christians in the 1980's and saw the work grow to around 30 adults most of them being new converts. This work also established many in their newly found faith and encouraged them to discover their gifting in Christ.

The door opened to work in Eastern Europe from 1994 onwards and Greg & Sue were involved in setting up a warehouse in Shropshire to supply aid during the Kosovo humanitarian crisis of 1999. During this period in Shropshire Greg linked with 'Through Faith Missions' and led an evangelistic team in the 'Walk Kent Mission'.

In 2000 Greg and Sue returned to the North West and now live in Grange-over-Sands, Cumbria.

Greg is today an accredited Baptist minister having served in two Baptist churches.

He has encouraged young missionaries in Albania, Hungary, Kosovo and Republic of North Macedonia and taught Bible students in the Ukraine.

In recent years Greg and Sue have ministered in pioneer churches in Spain and hope to continue to encourage God's people everywhere (Slide show and commentary re Mission and Ministry).
