Before coming to Hemel, Sam taught PE in Gateshead for a number of years and has developed the ability to stand happily in freezing cold rain and high winds. This in no way equipped him for his three years at Oak Hill Theological College which he finished in 2014.
He is married to Melissa and they have three young children. Sam is the pastor of Christ Church Hemel.
