'He Takes Risks for God' states the headline of the latest edition of The Methodist (Conference) Recorder.
Judith James compiled the profile of Rev'd Richard Teal and wrote about his long history in Methodism and about his family background in farming. In fact, Richard heard the call to become a minister whilst helping his father tending their sheep.
A further header reads 'He has remained true to his forefathers and his calling and will continue as a good shepherd to tend and feed his Father's flock.'
Rural life is important to Richard and he was part of the editorial team for the book 'Discipling Presence' which is a workbook for the rural church.
Richard has made these three traits — care, personal attention, and compassion — key hallmarks of his ministry.
We will continue to pray for Richard and Sue as they are called to work in new fields, and with God's help, find the lost, and inspire the faithful.
