“I have been a Christian since my teenage years and have always been involved in our home church, whether on the PCC, as churchwarden, leading a house group, as a church elder, helping start a Besom initiative or being a part of a world mission group. Since visiting Hilary and Peter Bewes in Tanzania in 1973 I have taken a keen interest in supporting mission.”
John lived and worked overseas for 14 years in Canada, USA and Hong Kong. He is married, has four grown-up children and three grandchildren.
