Church Relations Manager for Central and Northern England
Paul is passionate about seeing the truth of the Bible placed into everyone’s hands, so that they too can know the joy of freedom in God.
Paul says: ‘Throughout my Christian life I have found John 8:32 – “Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free” – to be very real. Through my work with Wycliffe I love being part of a really “sharp end” gospel mission across the nations.’
Paul’s faith story started as a young teenager when he began to attend the Salvation Army with his grandmother, and then he was part of a thriving Pentecostal church in Greater Manchester. One Sunday evening in that church Paul understood how much God loved him for the first time and he accepted Jesus as his saviour.
Paul and his wife Lou served God for a time in Kenya in the 1980s and then went on to full-time church leadership within the New Frontiers family of churches. Before Wycliffe, Paul worked in church relations at The Leprosy Mission.
Paul’s other passions in life after Jesus and his family are Manchester City Football Club (he was taken to his first game aged 5 by his dad) and attending live music events.
