Phil Bradley Posted on June 21, 2012 by samc Rev Philip BRADLEY, ordained a priest serving in the Benefice and Parish of Oldland. Having been a Lay Reader for two years, God put a strong desire in my heart to reach those outside the church, but I felt that I should do this full-time. I was surprised by this but explored it with other wonderful Christians and God continued to call me and open doors at the right times. Since becoming a Deacon in 2011 I have been privileged in helping connect people to God and have developed a passion to bring God’s hope to local communities that are living in darkness and fear of one another. I am excited about being priested because through the sacraments, evangelism and discipleship I can help others connect with God. I am also excited because I believe that God is calling me to help grow new leaders and work with the Holy Spirit in transforming both Christians and non-Christians to be the people God made them to be.
