Richard Taylor

RICHARD TAYLOR'S life is a phenomenal story - growing up on a working-class housing estate, Richard plummeted into a life of crime and drug addiction at a very young age. Territorial gang battles and drug trafficking across Wales followed, spiraling Richard down a path that ended up with him in Swansea Prison at the age of 18. 


CHRISTIAN MINISTER

Then, in 1993, his life radically changed when he became a Christian one night in his prison cell. He is now a minister at the Renewal Christian Centre in Solihull.

SOURCE OF ENCOURAGEMENT
As well as a preacher, Richard is a much sought after public speaker, in many different forums, including appearances on National TV (BBC 1) and on radio as a presenter, guest and panelist. His style of communicating is described as energetic, yet simple, humorous, yet challenging many to discover their potential. His contagious passion has been a source of encouragement to all those who have been touched by his story. 

Richard is married to Jill - they have two children (Joshua and Caleb). They currently live in the West Midlands.
