"So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets,
the evangelists, the pastors and teachers,
to equip his people for works of service,
so that the body of Christ may be built up
until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge
of the Son of God and become mature,
attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ."

Sportily Minister - Luke Campbell
Luke has three main passions: teaching sport, educating people on wellbeing and sharing the Gospel.
He loves to see the smile on a child’s face when they learn a new skill,
the joy that an adult feels when they find a form of exercise that suits them
and the growth a new believer experiences as they are nurtured into faith.
Luke enjoys running up very steep hills, cycling when it is sunny and swimming in cold water. He says he thinks he's funnier than he is.
Luke is member of Cirencester Baptist Church where he leads the Young Adults Housegroup.
