Leadership Team

The Minister

Our Minister is Rev Greg Obong-Oshotse. He came from Nigeria 14 years ago as Europe & North America Editor of Nigeria’s Daily Independent newspaper. He was raised Roman Catholic, but became an atheist at University where he studied Political Science before training as a journalist. He served as spokesman to Nigeria’s First Lady before coming to faith in an independent evangelical church in the early 1990s.

He was divinely rerouted to British Methodism in south Bedfordshire in 2006, where he trained as a local preacher and candidated before training for ministry at Wesley House Cambridge 2009-2011. He has degrees in theology from the Universities of Cambridge and Wales.

Greg is a shepherd-teacher who has the highest regard for the authority of Scriptures. He uses his skills as an expository preacher to help people to come to the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and to equip them to grow into mature disciples. So he rejoices “to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes.” Ephesians 4:11-14.

Greg is the author of a book entitled If The Angelic Postman Never Knocks On My Door (WestBow Press, Bloomington) a straight from the shoulder reflection on Christian commitment in a confused world.

He is married to Anna and they have four children and two grandchildren.
