Welcome to EPOCH Evangelism. This is the ministry of Malcolm and Sandie Ward who operate as itinerant evangelists out from their home base in the beautiful town of Falmouth in Cornwall, UK.
Malcolm and Sandie are a husband and wife team, and are both accredited, ordained ministers within the Elim Pentecostal Church International.
Malcolm, originally from Shropshire enjoys preaching regularly in and around the churches in the county, ministering across the denominations and he also speaks at Mens’ Breakfasts by invitation.
Sandie, originally from Guernsey in the Channel Islands, is a trained Hospital Chaplain having worked for many years within the Mental Health Services in Guernsey. She now works as Senior Chaplain at the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro and also oversees the chaplaincy team at St. Michael’s Hospital and Marie-Therese House in Hayle.
In their own words:
“We both have a strong calling and passion to preach the Good News of salvation found only in Jesus Christ. One of Malcolm’s main desires is to motivate and equip believers in the churches; to go out and win the lost (Ephesians 4:11-12). As a former firefighter who was used to putting out fires, he now wants to light fires of evangelism in believers hearts wherever he goes! We’re both eager to see Christians fully baptised in the Holy Spirit and move into a deeper relationship with the Lord, and be released as confident soul winners in any situation they find themselves in.” -Sandie
“We have great compassion for the poor and the marginalised in society and would encourage churches to set up projects to relieve suffering in their locations, even in the smallest of ways. Our desire is to always pray for people to be healed through the ministry of the laying on of hands for those suffering in mind or body. Sandie has an overwhelming compassion for troubled teenagers with drug and alcohol addictions, and has gained a lot of experience and understanding in the area of addiction and related mental health issues. She has seen a number of precious people come to faith despite their battle with illness.” -Malcolm
We honour, support and respect the nation of Israel, and this ministry supports Operation Exodus, a Christian organisation helping Jewish people return to Israel. We pray daily for the peace of Jerusalem as stated in Psalm 122:6 and Genesis 12:2-3
