Rev'd Paul Smith
Although Paul was born in Newcastle on Tyne (1959) and baptised in a Methodist church, he grew up in South India, where his parents served as Methodist Missionaries in the Church of South India.
He was confirmed ecumenically (Anglican, Methodist, URC) and then returned to UK to complete his schooling...
Rev'd Mindy Bell
I grew up at First United Methodist Church of La Puente (in the Greater Los Angeles area of California, USA). It isn't a big church (about 60-80 in worship on Sundays), but it has personal significance as it is the church where my grandparents, my parents, & Ted and I were married. It is the family of faith that nurtured and loved me as I was growing up and for that I am grateful.
