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 Richard Devis.


Richard, what is your job title?

I am a member of the IMPACT Team. [IMPACT is a voluntary year of service with a local church that includes training. For more information, you can see the ChristCentral website].


Can you briefly explain your job to us?

I create videos for the Church and also help with lots of other tasks.


What is your favourite part of your job?

My favourite part of the job is the video editing.


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

Isaiah 6:8 which says “Then I heard the Lord asking, “Whom should I send as a messenger to this people? Who will go for us?” I said, “Here I am. Send me.””

I like this verse because it shows obedience and willingness to follow God.


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

I like to spend time with friends playing video games or going out to see friends.


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

Beard growing.
