Michael Smith has recently joined our staff team. We’ve asked him to introduce himself…
My name is Michael, and I am the new youth leader at Everyday Church Wimbledon. I am a Londoner, born and bread and grew up in Chelsea all my life.
I studied my BA in Theology and Youth Ministry at St Mellitus College before joining Everyday Church. I am currently studying my MA in Theology this year.
I love to travel and try to go away as much as I can. I have been away every year since I was 21 (apart from Covid years). I have been to countries in Europe, Africa and North America. I plan to travel to more places. I have USA and Norway coming up this year (2022).
I am a massive football fan, supporting Manchester United. I do not get to watch as much as I would like but I keep up to date with it all. I am a massive film and TV show person. I watch a lot of Marvel films/shows.
I have done youth ministry for 8 years now. 5 years of that was voluntary, and 3 years was part of my BA degree. I really enjoy doing youth work and feel God calling me to do youth work. I started youth ministry at 24 because someone at my old church thought that I would be a good fit with a group of East London boys joining the church.
In his opinion, my background of growing up on a council estate would make it easier for them to relate to me, and I enjoyed it and felt that it was the thing God wanted from me.
We’re also planning to take a group to Newday this August. Let me know if you’d like to join the team! You can email me on: email@example.com
I’m looking forward to meeting you soon.
