Prior to ordination I was a secondary school teacher. As a minister I have served in Cornwall, as Leeds District Evangelism Enabler, as Superintendent of the Barnard Castle and Teesdale Circuit and since September 2018 also serve as Superintendent of the Darlington Circuit.
As deputy chair my role is to support the chair and to deputize for them as required. In addition my brief is to focus on evangelism and mission across the District in particular ensuring that this features on District agendas. The Evangelism Forum, which is open to all and meets two or three times a year, has emerged as part of this aspect of the role.
