danny rodgers, curate.
I am delighted to be serving my curacy at Buckingham Parish Church for two reasons. Firstly, I instantly connected with Will and thought he is a fantastic church leader from whom I could learn so much about faith and ministry. Secondly, when I visited the church late in 2015 I immediately could see that this is a place where the Spirit is at work and the kingdom of God is growing.
I have been married to Alison for five years. I think we could be described as childhood sweethearts, having been together since we were teenagers. We met at a youth congregation (a church designed for teens) in Harrow, the church in which I came to faith in Jesus when I was about 15. It was here that I began to exercise leadership and to sense God calling me to church leadership and potentially ordained ministry
After studying for my degree in theology and mission at All Nations Christian College, I have spent the last 6 years in youth ministry. I have loved working with young people and seeing many come to know Jesus, grow in their relationship with God, and begin to discover their spiritual gifts. However, I have to say I am really looking forward to a new season of life and ministry which will be free of chasing consent forms and all-night sleepovers!
I am a huge Arsenal fan and look forward to completing the quadruple next season. I love sport and will be looking for people to play tennis, squash, badminton and football with as soon as I arrive!
My prayer is that the Lord will enable Alison and I to be a blessing to the whole church and together we will see the Kingdom come in Buckingham in the years ahead!
