Introducing: SixtyEightFive

At last year’s Acts 29 Europe BootCamp in Cardiff I met a legendary bloke called Ian Williamson. Ian is man who is full of Jesus and has a passion for seeing the gospel take root on the estates of Middlesborough (find out more about the church that he recently planted up there here.) He also runs a fantastic ministry called SixtyEightFive. Here’s the lowdown:

Psalm 68 verse five, speaks of God being a father to the fatherless and this is where the charity, SixtyEightfive takes its name. Working in some of the most deprived wards in the country SixtyEightFive seeks to promote and support the role of fathers whilst providing positive male role models to men and boys who have been raised in a fatherless environment

By working closely with and supporting local schools/colleges, churches and community groups, SixtyEightFive provides a number of services including;
Community Chaplaincy
Youth Work
Mentoring
Supporting Fathers

Here’s a short film that serves as a great introduction to SixtyEightFive:

 

Here’s how I encourage you to engage with the video:

  • Watch it.
  • Pray for the ministry.
  • Pray for Ian and his family.
  • Pray for Middlesborough (could God be calling you to join the mission up there?)
  • Share it.
