From The Bible Base Wiki

"and He has given some apostles, and some prophets, and some evangelists, and some shepherds and teachers, for the perfecting of the saints; with a view to the work of the ministry, with a view to the edifying of the body of Christ; until we all arrive at the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, at the full-grown man, at the measure of the stature of the fulness of the Christ;" Darby Translation

Darby's translation of Ephesians 4 pretty much captures my own understanding of my own role in these pages. The head of the Church has given specific enablings in order to build up the saints. It is then the role of the saints to fulfil the work of the ministry and build up the body of Christ. His continuing gifts persist down the centuries and will continue 'until we all arrive...' The classifications are not hierarchical positions nor are they ever used in the scriptures as 'offices or titles'. They are more in the style of job descriptions. In that sense, and no other, I would regard myself as one of a company of 'shepherds and teachers'.

My home is in Reading, UK (about 40 miles west of London) and I am part of the Earley Christian Fellowship (Earley is a district in south-east Reading). At various stages of my pilgrimage I have been a formal pastor, home church leader, part of local church oversight, pastoral tutor, bible school tutor, conference speaker, broadcaster, writer... and just about everything in between.

I am married, raised (with my wonderful wife) seven children and am now enjoying my grandchildren.

This particular wiki will serve more as an index to several other sites than as a traditional wiki.
