Steve and Lesley Powell
Steve and Lesley live in Horwich and together head up the overall ministry of the church and carry its vision.
Both Steve and Lesley became Christians way back when the years began with "19", and the next figure was less than "7". They have been married almost as long and have two children and a number of grandchildren.
Their ministry and leadership of CHURCH@Claremont has brought many changes to both the people and the building and they long to see the church grow in numbers and in service to Jesus Christ.
"Our passion is to see people find Jesus as their Lord, Saviour and Friend - and to see them grow and mature into effective and useful members of His Church, enabling them to have a positive impact on their family, friends, neighbours and the town of Bolton".
"We believe that Jesus came so that people can have life - and live it to the full".
Kevan oversees the Pastoral Team, responsible for ensuring that church members receive all the support that they need from their church family. He is deeply involved with charity work, both inside and outside the church.
Kevan and his wife, Pauline, have 3 children and a number of grandchildren. They have been part of the church here at Claremont since the early days, more than 30 years ago.
