Graeme Orr

Graeme was saved as a Queens University student, age 19. He worked as a podiatrist for many years before the Lord called him into full time ministry within the Presbyterian Church. He is currently the Minister of Magheramason Presbyterian Church. Graeme has a passion for preaching God’s Word and reaching out to those who are spiritually lost. He is married to Mandy and they have four sons. In his spare time he enjoys running and watching Ireland rugby.

Scott Woodburn

Scott was born and reared in East Belfast and after finishing school and university worked as a computer programmer in Dublin and Belfast before commencing his ministry training at Union Theological College in 2003. He served as Assistant Minister in Gardenmore Presbyterian Church for three years before accepting the call to Edengrove, Ballynahinch in 2008. He is married to Jenny and they have three daughters Sophie, Abby and Ellie. He is constantly challenged by the Reformation cry of ‘Soli Deo Gloria’ which means ‘to God alone the glory’ and he sees this as the theme that underpins his ministry. In his spare time he enjoys reading, video games, football and professional wrestling.

Phil Howe

Phil lives in Carrickfergus with his wife Lindsay and they have 2 boys, Olly & Theo. He works as Training & Resources Manager for Scripture Union Northern Ireland. He enjoys opening the Bible for himself and for others. He’s a general sports fan and loves videos!
