Although I now live and work in the middle of England I come from the West Country city of Bristol, with its distinct accent. It was here that I enjoyed my school years both in the classroom and also on the sports field. My life had no room for Jesus until at seventeen when I heard the gospel for the first time through events put on at a friend’s church – that changed everything! Over the years since I have lived in South Wales and Oxford before settling in Leamington Spa just after the turn of the century. Prior to taking on a post responsible for training at a local church in Warwick (Myton Church) I had the privilege of working with the British IFES movement (UCCF) for ten years and then Friends International (UK) that equips the local church to reach international students. Across all these roles I have grown a passion for equipping Christians to reflect biblically on the culture around them so they can both live distinctively and reach out. Whilst Leamington is a long way from the sea I love to relax on deserted beaches, plus enjoy any combination of the following: good coffee, red wine, leisurely evenings with friends, log fires, films, the absorption of a jigsaw puzzle!’

Report on EuroTCK 2017 - Window to the World of the TCK
EuroTCK 2017 met from May 11-15 at the beautiful Friolzheim retreat centre near Stuttgart Germany. The theme was Window to the World of the TCK and Christian Quartier the plenary speaker.
Over 70 delegates participated in various workshops, plenaries and white board sessions dealing with diverse issues such as:
- Raising Sons and Daughters in a Muslim Context
- The Role of the Father in Transition
- Education pre and post field
- TCKs and Relationships
- The Value of Sadness
Christian´s plenaries were very well done and helpful in giving practical methods of dealing with issues that TCKs face.
We trust you will be able to attend our next conference. As work group leader I would like to publicly thank the work group for all their strong and diligent work to make EuroTCK 2017 a great success.
