Over the past few years, our staff team has grown and changed. In 2019, we want to help you get to know the Gateway team! Each month a few of our blogs will introduce you to a different staff member. This week we will be meeting John Davy.


John, what is your job title?

I’m a Pastoral Associate.


Can you briefly explain your job to us?

I help in various ways, but my main commitment is to cross-cultural activities. This includes international students and working on our international connections. I also encourage people in their service to God through their daily work.


What is your favourite part of your job?

Making friends from different nations.


What is your favourite Bible verse or story? Why is it your favourite?

Philippians 3:8 which encourages and challenges about the deepest motivation of our lives.


What do you like to do to relax after your work day?

I enjoy going to the gym, reading, listening to music, going for walks and watching movies.


If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance at winning a medal for?

I can’t think of anything, but chess would probably be the closest I would come.


John volunteers at different times during the week, though Fridays is his defined day off. He also leads a Life Group with his wife, Lesley.
