About Norman Wreford
‘Jesus is alive today’ on a lapel badge first attracted Norman to the gospel. Two days later, he made a decision for Christ at a Pentecostal church in Brixham. That was in February 1973. Later that year, retail management promotion moved him to Truro. He became actively involved in a pioneer church that started in 1974. Sensing God’s call into fulltime ministry, he resigned from management in 1976 to attend Bible College. He worked as an assistant pastor in 1977 in Doncaster, before pioneering a church in Wadebridge the following year. After many fruitful years in Cornwall, he was invited to pastor a church in Exeter. In October 2008 he moved to Launceston, fellowshipping with the Methodist church. He then joined forces with John Berriman to help pioneer Gateway 2 Newlife Elim church right from its beginning. He is in the process of re-locating to Saltash and has a desire to see a strong Pentecostal church established there once again.
Norman is presently involved with producing teaching material for church leaders in Uganda on such subjects as Bible exposition, ministerial ethics and pastoral care (see Missions link for more details).
He is the author of 6 mini booklets on The Believer’s Rights and Privileges.
He has been married to Jenny for nearly 10 years, has 2 sons, 2 step-sons and a grand-daughter. He enjoys playing golf regularly and represents his local club in competitions.
About Recovery Ministries
King David, faced with the loss of his wives, children and all of his possessions, had a choice. Accept it and live the rest of his life in bitterness and anger or do something about it. He chose the latter, in spite of his men being ready to give up and take out their anger and hurt on him.
David did two things of great importance that changed everything.
- He strengthened himself in the Lord his God.
- He inquired of the Lord about his loss.
God’s response was to promise him that he would, ‘without fail recover all’ (1 Samuel 30:6, 8). And he did!
The goal of Recovery Ministries is to see people of all nationalities recovering from loss, whatever that loss may be, in accordance with the promises they have in Jesus Christ. ‘The things which are impossible with men are possible with God‘ – Luke 18:27
