A WAY OF LIFE
MISSIONAL + COMMUNITY + EVANGELISM
Xplore is for 18-30s who want to live missionally doing evangelism. We are peer led communities where everyone gets to do evangelism in their own context.
Xplore equips 'give it a go' type people as well as those who get frightened by evangelism, and is perfect for those who want to do something right now but are short on time and short on money.
We are part of Church Army; one of the largest organisations in the UK and Ireland entirely committed to the work of evangelism.

My name is Neville. People guess that I’m in my early 40’s and we’ll leave it at that. I’ve been a church Army evangelist for 24 years. That must mean I get a clock or something like that next year (air miles should anyone be interested). Originally from Northern Ireland, I’ve worked primarily as a youth evangelist in Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and England. I’m passionate about Christians getting to do evangelism that looks like sounds like and feels like its authentically them AND God doing it. I now live in Sheffield with a wonderful family (they are reading over my shoulder so I have to say that). I also like sending photos of Donegal in the glorious sunshine to people. That happens a lot more than you’d imagine.
MEET THE TEAM
My name is Emma. I’m 28, Northern Irish born and bred now living in Seaham, North East England with my husband Mark and our 3 year old son, Jonah. When I was 12 I had a Holy Spirit encounter that changed my life and I’ve been in love with Jesus ever since (with a few bumps along the road since then!). I took part in Xplore last year and it was a complete game-changer. I’m on the leadership team of a small Pentecostal church in Seaham which is great fun. We do lots of community work and we long to see revival in Seaham! I love hanging out with my family, writing, cooking & baking, playing anything Mario, and making & listening to music (John Mayer is my favourite!). If I was on Mastermind, my specialised subject would be NASA’s Apollo missions. Yep, I’m a wee bit of a nerd.
My name is David. I’m 32, born in Cape Town South Africa and have been living in Sheffield since 2014 with my wife Lucie. We have a boy named Noah and a second healthy baby on its way (thank you God). I realised Jesus was my hero since I was about 15, and realised I was loved and free when I was about 25. Not sure what comes at about 35, but I’m looking forward to it. I enjoy using my head and hands to do building work part-time, playing games with friends, watching films by log fire and doing sport. We’re part of a missional community team living in a close cluster of homes on a housing estate. We have fun loving our neighbours and being loved by them.
