Who am I?

I am Adam Young and I was a minister at Emmanuel Church in Saltburn, UK. Currently King Jesus is teaching me humility and the trials of unemployment.  I pray soon I will be back into being a full time pastor but until then the Lord is Good and I am as ever His slave.

I studied an undergraduate degree in theology at Wycliffe Hall (Oxford University) and went on to train for ministry there by doing a Masters in Applied Theology. My thesis looked at the theology of 'the blood of Jesus' seen in the East African Revival and how it can, and indeed must, be used today.  

Part of my thesis has recently been published in the International Journal for the Study of the Christian Church.  Another article of mine regarding the five defining characteristics of classical Reformation Anglicanism can be found in the journal Anglican Tradition

Along with others I help out at the Revive Christian Holiday Conference  which is currently in a fallow year as we seek to turn the conference into a year round online ministry providing testimony and teaching concerning the gospel of rest and peace.  I supported the recent revival of Jesus Saves Racing and continue to be involved in evangelism and discipleship in the motorsport scene.  

I was ordained into the Church of England as a deacon on the 1st of July 2012 and joined the presbytery on the 26th of July 2013.

Whilst I post links to my sermons on this blog you can find all the recordings on my SoundCloud. 

I strongly believe that the Historic Formularies of the Church of England (The 39 Articles of Religion, The Book of Common Prayer, and The Ordinal) all testify to the pure Gospel faith plainly seen in Scripture. The Anglican church was, should be, and must return to being, a church that upholds and defends "the true profession of the Gospel and the Protestant Reformed religion."  

The thing I am most passionate about is preaching. I am also a black belt in MMA and a nationally qualified martial arts instructor. I enjoy nothing more than sitting in a sunny field (or being by a log fire) reading some Spurgeon.

If I could sum everything up in one sentence it would be this:

It is ALL about Jesus!
