Bio: Danny began his ministry with Chester Road Baptist Church in March 2018, having previously served churches in Stourbridge and Altrincham. He has an unusual mix of church ministry, Christian charity (Head of Youth Services, Oasis UK), commercial (Executive Search 'head hunter') and education (RE teaching) experience, with a ‘red thread’ of encouraging people to explore issues of faith, identity, and purpose. This enables him to better understand and support those following Christ in the work/ market place. Danny is married to Sally, a National Probation Service manager, and they have two daughters.
