My name is Kevin, and my wife's name is Santa. We are married and we have 3 children between us. I come from an Irish background but was born in England. My wife is Latvian. We both come from difficult upbringings, had hard times in our lives, we've been through difficult situations and struggled with addictions, depression, etc. Because of coming through this, God has given us real hearts for people struggling with addictions, people struggling with depression... all people. The one who is forgiven a lot - loves a lot (Luke 7:47).
I'm in a full-time ministry but also I have a full-time job. I'm a plasterer. Many people think being a full-time minister is to leave the job and living by faith. You don't have to leave the job to live by faith (unless God is leading you to do so). I have a full time job and we still are living by faith every day. There have been times when I struggled to get some job, and sometimes the bills and other expenses are hard to pay, I have a family of 5. But then we just depend on God and God always helps us. And God is using me mightily at work and wherever I go. I have lost many jobs in the past because of preaching the gospel and doing what Jesus commanded us to do, but God always have to come first and He always provides me with another job. Glory to God!
God gave us the vision for Fishers Of Men. It started with just a House Church but God has been blessing us, we've gone from glory to glory and now it's gone from House Church to Deliverances (on Zoom and in person), Outreach, Mission trips, Planting more House Churches etc. We are doing everything that Jesus did - baptizing people, people have been set free from demons, people have been healed from diseases and sicknesses, we are discipling people - teaching them to do the same things that we do, as Jesus said. All glory to God.
After my trip to Uganda in 2022 God spoke to me and gave me a new "sister" ministry Five Loaves. Fishers Of Men Halifax are focusing on discipleship, teaching, equipping the saints, healing in Jesus name, deliverances and all that. But Five Loaves will be focusing on orphans, widows, helping the poor etc. You can read more about it here.
Our heart's desire is just to serve the Lord with all our hearts until He takes us home or until He comes back - whichever comes first. We want to see as many souls come to Christ as possible. We give up our own fleshly desires and we want to do the will of God. We don't want to miss any of God's destinies for our lives. We don't want to be like Esau who gave up his birthright for the bowl of soup (Genesis).

We're in Halifax, West Yorkshire, UK.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Only-begotten Son of the Father who existed in the Beginning (John 1:1) with the Father, with the Holy Spirit as a part of the Trinity. We believe He was crucified under Pontus Pilate but 3 days later He rose from the grave and He ascended back to heaven at the right hand of the Father and will come again to judge the world. This was the Father's plan for Salvation for mankind who are spiritually dead due to the fall of Adam and Eve.
We believe to be saved you need to recognize you are a sinner and repent and believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God and He died on the cross to pay for the sins of man. You need to get baptized in Jesus's name for the remission of your sins and then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. We are saved by Grace through Faith, and the proof of genuine Salvation is a soul that's been washed clean by the blood of Jesus and set apart for good works in the Lord. No longer living in the former lust of the flesh but living in the Spirit, living a holy life, sanctified by the power of God overcoming the power of the devil and sin. This process is called the Sanctification process but this can take some time. But with the right support and love and proper discipleship, this is 100% achievable.
