Hi, I'm Joseph Bower - the new Schools and Youth Worker for Gateway. I'm orginally from the other place (Lancashire), but my family roots are Barnsley!
I've just finished studying Theology and Performing Arts at an Elim Bible College. Five years ago, I performed at the Lamproom Theatre in Barnsley, as James Hudson Taylor. That was a great experience. This also led to me visiting China with Mark Reasbeck, for the opening of the JHT centre.
Little did I know, that would develop into an opportunity for me to serve in Barnsley as Gateway's School and Youth Worker.
I really look forward to develop connections between churches and schools in Barnsley. I also hope to share more of the Christian faith with young people.
I look forward to meeting you. If you wish to support me in anyway, here's my contact details: firstname.lastname@example.org
PS Below is info on how to support the work financially. Please pray for the work.
