John leads Enable, a mission team at The Message Trust. Drawing on his wealth of experience in church ministry and his personal journey of living with cerebral palsy. Born eight weeks premature and diagnosed with a severe muscular disability, it was assumed John would never be able to walk, talk or be independent. By the grace and power of God, John is now able to inspire and encourage those facing their own difficulties. John is passionate about seeing people connect with the good news of Jesus, and is especially committed to ensuring that those with seen or unseen disabilities have opportunities to respond to the gospel, connect with and serve the local church and be released into the fullness of life that God has for them.
