Adrian became a Christian at the age of 11 and was baptised at 15. After obtaining a Law Degree he did several kinds of jobs including two years on the factory floor before responding to the Lord’s call to train for the Baptist ministry. His first Church was in Norfolk in 1995 and he has subsequently ministered in a variety of different sizes and kinds of Baptist Church. He has been married to Rachel since 1989 and they have one son. They have also fostered for a number of years and Adrian has been involved with the Police in a voluntary capacity.

Since becoming a Christian Adrian has experienced a wide range of Christian denominations. This has resulted in an ecumenist outlook and he works well with other Church Ministers on the Isle of Wight. He has been at Castlehold Baptist Church since 2009. His main focus and passion is to see Christians grow into disciples of Jesus – together in community. Other interests include football, boxing, films, some contemporary music and lateral thinking.
