Duncan writes…

Ireland is my home and the place where I have seen the desperate need for the gospel. In this nation and among these people there are so few gospel centred churches. I was blessed to grow up in a believing household where my mum brought us to a church that faithful preached Christ. It was in Ireland at the age of 4 when I came to faith, and it was in Ireland as a child when I first began to consider Gods call on my life toward full-time ministry. 

For the past 10 years, I have been in the UK studying and working. Becky and I got married in 2014 and have been serving together within different ministries. Becky has been working as a children’s nurse as I have been in full-time ministry for the past 5 years while also studying on Crosslands Seminary level course. Together we are currently serving at Trinity Community Church Hinckley where I am on staff.

We are so thankful to God for His direction toward us in leading us to Ireland with a desire to see gospel churches planted. It is a joy to be able to partner with City Church as we together long for Dublin to be reached with the gospel. Though this is going to be a challenge and a hard task we are trusting God as we prayerfully pursue Him to see His name honoured and glorified among the people of Ireland. 

Please join us in praying for the desperate need in Ireland for the gospel to be faithfully preached and for churches to be planted in Dublin and throughout Ireland
