Elim Bible College, London Road , Nantwich, Cheshire : Offered from Manchester University a B.A. Honours Degree in Theology and Christian Ministry which was refused due to its heavy reliance on the application of "Higher Criticism" thus the Bible College of Wales does not recognise any theology degree with such reliance, as this reliance is a question of the deity of Christ Jesus.

My role has been in training and equipping church workers in U.K., U.S. and Asia to bring about conditions for relief from sickness and poverty. Within this calling has come the setting up of teaching conferences and meetings which have gone on for some time in Sri Lanka and India working with ministries on the ground, as shown on the right in Vavuniya, Sri Lanka when the war was on in 2001.
Part of this outreach has also included the setting of LCM Trading Company with intentions of setting up mission houses in devastated lands particularly in the North of Sri Lanka which has suffered eighteen years of war and now a major Tsunami whilst the national side of our ministry is designed to bring Britain back to its strong moral and determined role as is shown in its Christian Constitutional acts of 1534, 1689 and 1700.
