Hi - I am Derek, married to Kate with two grown up children, Natalie and James. I have been a Christian since the age of fourteen and have been at FBC since 2009.
In 2011 I was elected as a Trustee and Deacon for Finance.
As a Trustee we have the responsibility of general control and management of the administration of the Church as a charity.
In my role as a Deacon for Finance I manage the church's financial resources, ensuring they are effectively spent and preventing overspending or the accumulation of huge reserves. I report to the leadership team and to the church membership on a regular basis, the financial situation.
I currently work in health care and enjoy relaxing at weekends walking, reading and, when able, a week or so sailing on the Norfolk Broads. I am an active member of a LIFE group within FBC and my passion is to see Christians develop and grow in their walk with the Lord.
