For 17 years I worked in the local Council as a Business Support Officer, sharing my love for Jesus wherever I felt it appropriate. During this time I have also supported my father who has recently received his MBE and is the only Asian honorary Canon in the Church of England. Like my father, Tony needs much organising and I joined City Vision in 2014 to assist with its organisation, communication and co-ordination.
I am passionate about the possibilities I see within City Vision for large scale city change. Having seen the reaction of Church leaders and Christian business people to the challenges and processes Tony describes, I am confident God is with us in this. We hold the vision lightly and are here to serve. We can only go at the speed of those we seek to bring together but there is a discernible building of momentum. Before long I believe we will see an increasing number of cities impacted as City Vision seeks to bring leaders together and provide tools, processes and encouragement for the transformation of their city.
In the short time I have worked at City Vision I have been stretched, some of my presuppositions challenged and my faith enlarged. It's an exciting journey and I am thankful to God to be part of it.
