The Christian Institute’s Northern Ireland Officer, Callum Webster, has reached the milestone of 1,000 meetings.
Callum, who is originally from Dundee, started working for the Institute ten years ago.
Director Colin Hart congratulated Callum for his tireless work over the last decade.
Mr Hart said: “He has been a great help to the Institute in furthering our work and making a bold stand for the gospel in Northern Ireland.
“Completing 1,000 meetings is no mean feat – he has spent thousands of hours planning and networking, he’s driven thousands of miles and got to know a great many people over the years.
“We thank God for Callum, who is a diligent and faithful servant in all that he does and we look forward to working with him for many years to come.”
Callum took up the role of Northern Ireland officer in 2005 but the first meeting he attended was actually held in Eltham, London.
After ten years of touring and exhibiting for the Institute in many parts of Scotland, England and Wales, as well as Northern Ireland, Callum held his 1,000th meeting in Lisburn, County Antrim.
He said that he is delighted and humbled to have served the Lord over so many years: “I’m thankful to the Lord for the openings He has provided into many different churches.
“It is a privilege to share the Institute’s work with Christian believers across the country.
“The work of The Christian Institute is very important because the Bible commands churches to pray for civil Government and calls Christians to act as salt and light for the Lord Jesus Christ in society.”
He added: “Gospel freedom and liberty of conscience are being undermined here in Northern Ireland, as elsewhere. We must continue to defend biblical principles such as the sanctity of life and marriage, the Lord’s Day, and religious freedom.”
