A tribute to David Ollerton

David Ollerton, who went to be with the Lord on 18 March 2017, was our friend, our partner in the Gospel, our leader, and the founder of Waleswide.

All of us involved in Waleswide will miss David’s friendship, his vision to see revival in Wales, and his dedication to see Gospel churches planted and struggling churches revitalized.  Yet we will also give thanks for his faith, for his dedication to the God-given vision of ministry that is Waleswide, and for the extraordinary energy and passion he was able to display serving that vision the length and breadth of Wales.

Whenever David and I shared a car journey to or from a Waleswide working group meeting, he would point out homes, chapels, even gravestones, of many of the men of faith from Welsh history, and would then tell me and anyone else in the car a little of their story of dedication to the Gospel and service for the Lord Jesus.  David Ollerton now stands shoulder to shoulder with those men of faith, and joins the list of Wales’ great men of God.
