Christine West

Christine West

National Facilitator, UK & Trustee

Christine, married to David since 1984 is mum to 3 grown boys, Paul, Marc and Adam, their three grand-daughters are the delight of her life. Armed with a theology degree she went on to teach Religious Studies in various state secondary schools on and off for 30 years before leaving to work for a charity as Education Manager. She left this post to look after her elderly parents who are now having a party in heaven.

She also has a love for the prophetic ministry in which she is also involved. Her love and care for people meant that when she attended the first Bethel Sozo Training Conference in Sevenoaks, Kent in 2008, it was natural for her to want to get involved with the ministry.

Christine really enjoyed teaching and mentoring individuals and church teams, initially in the South East. She is passionate about Bethel Sozo and the freedom it brings. To see folk more intimately connected to Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit is the reason she loves this ministry. She sees it as a real privilege to be entrusted with her current national role.
