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 firstly 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
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.
