(Senior Pastor, Kirkham, Lancashire)
Andrew invited Jesus into his life at 18 years of age. This was right in the middle of the punk rock era. 'My chains fell off, my heart was free' really was appropriate! God transformed him.
For nine years he pastored Dundonald Free Methodist Church, establishing youth groups and adult ministries. The highlight of his first three years of ministry was being involved in a church plant in Newtownards.
Andrew writes, "Being in the ministry, I am asked what my vision is. I long to see Christians becoming effective disciples. It is wonderful to see individuals deploying gifts in the church and in their community. I long to see the non-christian reached through the friendships each Christian makes, but I long to see God move by His Holy Spirit in transforming power."
