Richard Champion’s Pastor Reference Richard Champion has been part of Broadfield Christian Fellowship for the past three years. He has joined into the life of the church and is keen to grow in his Christian life and share his faith with others. Richard’s calling is to take the cross to various towns and cities throughout the UK and, with his vision to serve Christ, he had the cross commissioned on his own initiative. Broadfield Christian Fellowship is pleased to support Richard in this venture and, indeed, Richard carried the cross to our town-wide service at Easter 2014 and 2015.Dave Evans
Richard Champion was introduced to us by our long term friend, Evangelist Dougie March. Richard came to Birmingham in the Spring of 2014 with a vision to carry a cross between the football stadiums of Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion as a way to reach out to youth, especially the fatherless.
We held a fellowship meeting with him the night before the walk. We organised a route together and accompanied him on the walk. He stopped for some conversations on the way and gave out some literature. He started at Aston Villa football ground and walked about 7 miles in total, passing West Bromwich Albion’s ground and finishing in West Bromwich high street where he erected his cross on a stand; as we held an open air service.
We believe his evangelistic action had an effect in the area. We were encouraged by his visit and look forward to partnering together with him in evangelism in the future.
Every blessing, Pastor Peter Samuels
