Introducing Michael

Introducing Michael who commenced working with Label of Love in December 2023.

My background is one of Primary Teaching, HLTA, Mentoring and Teaching Assistant. Before moving to Hull from Bradford in 2019 I worked in Children’s Centres as an Outreach Worker followed by 5yrs as a Pastoral & Community Worker in Leeds. I carried out home visits, delivered food parcels, ran Community meals, led bible studies including ‘Talking Jesus’ and ‘First Steps’ discipleship sessions. Concurrently, I was a Freelance Sole Trader delivering Parenting Programmes and the Freedom Programme (For victims of DA). I specialised in delivering a programme for fathers.

I have 3 grown up children and a stepson. To relax and de-stress I jog 2/3 times a week, play pool and read my bible. I am part of Freedom Church, which was established by Jubilee Church.  I co-lead worship as well as fun and faith sessions to a small number of young teens once a month on Sundays. I hope to use my guitar skills, singing, puppetry and games etc. as we seek to make Jesus known when working with churches and schools.

Psalm 71 v18 encourages us to always speak about the goodness of God, especially to the generation behind us:

                                          “Let me proclaim your power to this new generation…”.
