Jeff has been the full-time minister of the church since 2006 and he writes...

I can still hear those words now...'you will probably have to give up your season ticket!' They were the words spoken by my college 'church placement co-ordinator' when I decided to be trained for the Spurgeon's College in London. It seemed a long way to watch Liverpool play football! A little later I was invited, and I accepted, to be the part-time student minister of Fernhill Heath Baptist Church. To be honest I did not know that much about Worcestershire, only that it was overseas, or at least south of the River Mersey.

On my first Sunday, a lady approached me at the end of the service and said,
'Are you a season ticket holder for Liverpool FC, because I go on a coach from Worcester to Anfield for all the home you want to book you in?'
As my Dad would later say 'Jeff...there is a God in heaven after all'...but to be honest I've known that for many years.

So I moved to Fernhill Heath in 2003. Previously, when I had a proper job, I was an engineering manager for a cable company and really enjoyed it, but it seemed over a period of time and after many 'coincidences' and conversations, that I felt God was calling me into the ministry. I am still passionate about football...and golf...and fishing, but my main passion is to serve Jesus. There is something truly thrilling about being a Christian. Not only learning to know and love God, not
only finding purpose, strength and hope in Jesus, but also the joy and challenges of sharing this journey of faith with others here in the church and in the community.

Life can get messy and complicated at times, but knowing we travel together is good stuff.

I was ordained as a Baptist minister in 2006 and became the first full-time minister of Fernhill Heath Baptist Church.
