My wife and I are full-time Christian workers with stewardship: https://www.give.net/mannaministries//oneoff we have dedicated our lives to the call. As a family, we live by faith for all our needs and rely on partners to support us in our family living for our income.
Having started in Eastbourne, the Lord moved us to Hertfordshire where we spent two years training children and young people weekly. Putting on performance in YWAM facilities.
Having run a creative literacy business with my wife in primary education, we love doing similar things and activities together for the Lord.
Over the last 6 years, Manna has developed into a Family founded and run ministry. We are a family of six, and one way or another all our children are involved in the Ministry with us now. Our Grownup Son is in charge of all the Media, and Graphic design across the ministry, Our daughter helps with Choreography and admin in her spare time and now teaches in Juniors. Our middle son writes and creates all the songs with my wife Jaime for the musicals and our youngest gives us the inspiration to be a child in faith and heart.
We are honoured to see what God has done over the last 6 years, and as a family we now principal and train young people and adults in three counties in the UK.
I love watching old movies, curry, walking, my kids, my wife, and our dog! Not in that order!!! We are honoured to be full-time Christian workers through the charity stewardship. This is an exciting journey and God has done so many miracles for us as a family!
Jai and I oversee the whole ministry and are often wearing all kinds of hats from props team to painter to admin to lesson planning, and that's between being a daddy and husband and son of my father God! Ministry is the best and my wife and I and children love what we do and say “ Bring it on Jesus we want more”
We have a huge excitement for all the Lord wants to do in Manna!
I have trained in the performing arts since I was very small both at school and college, having both vocational and Ministry experience in dance, ballet, modern, musical theatre and singing. I went on to be involved in local musical theatre in my area and took on principal roles in musicals. Working in churches both training and performing in the community and street evangelism I developed such a desire and love to see children and young people develop in the art forms, but with the character of Christ shining through in all they do.
Manna ministries were born in our heart nearly 17 years ago now when we pioneered a Performing Arts ministry in East Sussex that held musical theatre productions and involved children from a wide range of denomination and churches. Having to lay my shoes down 10 years ago as I was bedridden with a serious illness.
I have spent much time longing to teach again and to see all restored. Starting with one academy and now the Lord has expanded to three in three counties. It is a walk of faith for me, as I trust for my Complete healing and take each day at a time.
I write the musicals as best I can - I give all credit to the Lord He always gives me inspiration and ideas. He is my Musical director and my best friend. As artistic director, I oversee and contribute to all our lesson content across our academies. I am the mum of four wonderful children! They are my inspiration and best friends. We work as a real team, team Crick! We couldn't do this without the love and support of our children, they are both courageous in their own fights for health and their joy of laughter that rings in our home with the humour of them all and music they all play and sing.
Our house is never quiet. There is always someone playing, singing composing, preaching and dancing somewhere... It's sometimes needed to throw my apron over my head and pray in the little still spot I get each day. Would I change it? Never – my family and my manna family are the greatest and I love each one with all my heart. May God use us, as He wills, send us where he wants and open hearts and heal lives through the children we train and the team he brings! I Echo my husband ‘ Bring it on Jesus, here we are send us”.
