Anne has been involved in ministry training since 2002, mainly through Mattersey Hall Bible College, and a year at Cliff College administering their PhD Missiology students. Her work included managing the library, archive and speciality lecturing and dissertation supervision in Mission, Pentecostalism, and Practical Theology. She has been married to Colin since 1977 and they have two children born while we were ministering in South Thailand in two cultures, but mainly a Muslim minority. Intercultural ministry is where she loves to work, and they found themselves with Persian believers since 2006 in UK. She has also led a number of short-term mission teams in Europe, Thailand and Malaysia. Also involved at leadership levels in the local Methodist church, Anne has had roles on the local church leadership, the circuit and district synod. Meanwhile, I thrive on encouraging trainee ministers for the sake of God’s kingdom.
