Steve & Sheila Cochrane
Steve and Sheila moved to Kenton in October 2011 and Steve was inducted as the Minister of Kenton Baptist Church on Saturday 5th November. Steve writes “I was brought up in a non-Christian home, and in 1989 after listening to the Gospel message by Dr. Billy Graham, I realised how much more there was to life, and a simple first step towards the relationship God had always wanted for me, was only a prayer away. I responded positively to the call, and experienced an immediate desire to know him more by accepting Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour.”
Steve spent nearly 20 years in secular employment before training for Christian ministry, first in the Methodist Church and then in the Baptist denomination. He and Sheila have worked a lot with young people as well as congregations of all ages. Both are gifted musically, singing and playing guitar. They especially enjoy spending time with their children and grandchildren when they can.
Steve says “We have a strong desire to see the Church built up and our society transformed by the love of God. Since becoming Christians our greatest desire has been to see other people find a living faith, freedom in Christ and a joy in discipleship."
