I was born in 1946 in Stockport in the North West of England, just outside Manchester.
From 1958 to 1962 I attended a Roman Catholic Seminary called the Salesian Missionary College, in Pott Shrigley, with a view to entering the priesthood.
At the age of sixteen I left the college and engaged in secular work. This was the sixties with emphasis on drugs, rock n roll and immoral lifestyles and Iwas involved in all of them.
Around 1973 some of my friends converted to Christianity, and told me I needed Christ. I eventually gave my life to Christ at a Stephen Olford campaign in Manchester.
In 1975 I attended the Apostolic Bible College in Penygroes, South Wales, where I met my wife. The following year we were married in Canada and we returned to England for about three years where I served as an elder in a local church.
In 1979 we went back to Canada where I eventually became a Pastor in a local church for the next fifteen years.
In 2003 my wife and I resigned and attended University in Peterborough, Ontario, where we received our Masters degrees.
After graduating in 2007 we came to Korea where, along with our children, Naomi and Daniel, we are teaching English.
