"I really enjoyed my three years studying for a BA at Union School of Theology. The excellent teaching and wonderful campus community made this a great place to explore my calling to ministry. Although we moved away from home to study, we've been able to stay in touch with our sending church in High Wycombe, who've supported us brilliantly.

In July 2017 I was inducted as the pastor of Litchard Mission Church in Bridgend. I'd had the privilege of preaching there many times while I was studying, and I'm really excited about what the Lord has in store for us and the church in the future.

Studying at Union gave me a great foundation to build on. The course was stretching and encouraging, with constant relevance to real-life ministry. God has used the experience to grow me in my character and gifting, and to teach me more about his grace. I've also come away from the course with good friends, who I hope will be a source of mutual encouragement in future ministry.

In praying for us; please join us in giving thanks for how God has led us so far! We particularly value prayer for us as a family, as we continue to adjust to a new pattern of life. I'm also aware of my need for wisdom for the new challenges I'll face. I'm thankful that I'm serving alongside a wonderful team of elders; please pray that we would lead the church faithfully and that the Lord would be pleased to make us fruitful, for his glory."
