Despite being raised in a Christian family that taught him the Gospel, Martin remembers from a young age having a disposition against Christianity. The culture of hatred and violence in Belfast in the 70’s, coupled with being taught evolution at school made the Christian message of “love and kindness” seem weak and unappealing. Martin greatly enjoyed the adulation and respect earned from his achievements in sport, leaving him to feel ashamed of his familial association with Christianity. One Sunday evening, Martin attended a Gospel Service to appease his parents, and it was here where Martin was powerfully convicted of sin, righteousness and judgement, Martin literally cried out to God for forgiveness. Ever since that moment Martin has loved hearing and spreading the Gospel and supporting others in doing the same. Martin and his wife Jane live in Northern Ireland, and they have 3 children.
