Our International Advisory Team is made up of Jeff Lucas, Stephen Matthew and Paul and Priscilla Reid. They meet together with the CFC Elders twice a year. They provide valuable advice and wisdom, as well as offering ongoing support.
Jeff Lucas is an international author, speaker and broadcaster. His passion is to equip the Church with biblical, practical bible teaching, marked by vulnerability and humour. He has been privileged to address many conferences and churches worldwide.
A former vice-president of the Evangelical Alliance UK, Jeff is a best-selling author of 26 books, which have been translated into many languages across the world. He broadcasts on weekly radio shows throughout Europe on Premier Radio, UCB Radio and the Vision Radio network throughout Australasia.
He is a monthly contributor for the UK magazine, ‘Premier Christianity', and the Men's magazine, 'Sorted'. Jeff writes daily bible reading notes with CWR, "Lucas on Life Every Day".
He holds a pastoral teaching position at Timberline Church in Fort Collins, Colorado, a church that has mushroomed in growth in what is a relatively small city. He is an ambassador for Compassion, the charity working to save and help the lives of hundreds of thousands of children worldwide.
Stephen Matthew is a gifted Bible teacher, author and committed church-builder with well over 35 years of experience in Christian ministry.
For many years he served as Senior Associate Pastor of LIFE Church, Bradford, which remains his home, but today he spends his time serving a growing relational network of churches and leadership teams as a coach, speaker, consultant and hands-on strategist.
The communication of truth with clarity is Stephen’s passion, which is reflected in both his practical, insightful and equipping teaching style, and in his writing.
He has become a popular speaker at national and local church conferences and a supportive voice to leadership teams across a wide spectrum of churches and ministry networks.
Stephen was the Founding Principal of LIFE Church College, where he still teaches, and enjoys being a regular guest lecturer at a number of Bible Colleges in Europe.
Paul was the Senior Pastor at Christian Fellowship Church, Belfast for twenty-five years.
He and his wife Priscilla now travel worldwide to encourage leaders to build healthy, growing Churches. They have been involved in ten church plants and want to help church planters have the best start in launching and growing a healthy congregation.
Priscilla’s passion is to see women take their place alongside men in the church to fulfill their God given calling. Over the years she has trained people in the prophetic, leading prophetic teams and encouraging people to hear from God. Along with Paul she is committed to help strengthen local churches wherever God opens the door.
Christian Fellowship Church is a Christ centred community dedicated to impacting Belfast, Ireland and the nations with the love of God in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Christian Fellowship Church (CFC) is registered as a charity with the Charity Commission of Northern Ireland: NIC101476
