Pulse wouldn't run without out dedicated trustees working behind the scene to pray for and direct the vision of Pulse. Here they are:
I began volunteering with Pulse as a holiday club intern in 2009 and have been involved, in various guises ever since, currently functioning as chair of trustees. In my day-to-day life I work as priest in the Church of England where my passion for children's and youth work continues to find a home. I am married to Emily and our family consists of 2 children (one 4 year old and one due in October 2023).
I am also the trustee who is responsible for Safeguarding. Please do send me an email if you have any concerns at all on firstname.lastname@example.org
I have just joined Pulse and am excited to see where God leads us. I am married to Kevin (pictured) with three grown up children and I currently live in South Somerset although we are originally from South Africa. I have a background in Pharmacy, retail and school governance, amongst other things! I have a real heart for young people and a passion for them to read and understand the Bible for themselves.
I am from Germany and moved to the UK in 2020 to finish my masters in theology ministry and mission in Bristol.
I’ve been involved with children and youth work since I was a teenager and have been running sunday school for different churches too. I’ve also been involved in organising summer camps over the years. Lately I’ve been working as an assistant Chaplin for a student accommodation at Lee Abbey in London, which involved running events and discipling new believers.
I am passionate for young people to find Jesus for themselves and grow in their love for him. I am currently working with 'Youth with a mission' where we focus on winning the young generation for the gospel. My heart burns for people to not only be believers but to become ambassadors of Christ. In my spare time I love going to coffee shops with friends.
Rod is a consultant who works with charities, churches and organisations on strategic change. He is married to Carol and they have a son, daughter-in-law and two granddaughters. He became a follower of Christ in his teens and is actively involved both his local church and in consulting with the Church of England. He is keen on reading, walking and red wine (although struggles to do all at once) and can often be in his back garden on a sunny day with an obscure book.
Sharron is a long standing trustee for Pulse. She is Associate minister in charge of pastoral care and families at Holy Trinity Church Comb Down and has had a wide range of experience in ministry including working with National Parenting Initiative.
Craig is ordained in the Church of England and is currently serving at an international Christian school in South India. Prior to ordination, Craig worked in project and people management for over a decade in a range of areas, including event management, retail and the Christian sector. He is passionate about coaching and strategic thinking, drawing on modern leadership principles and the spiritual legacy of Christians like St. Benedict.
Craig is married to Sarah and has two young daughters. He has diverse interests, from beach walks to sci-fi movies. He is more likely to be reading a leadership book than a novel, but he is known to read the odd detective story when on holiday.
Zoe is based in Cardiff where her husband is a curate in the Church of Wales. She has a 2 year old daughter and another en route. Zoe grew up in Uganda and Kenya and loved spending her childhood out there. In her spare time she loves running and all things outside!
