Both are qualified youth and community workers and Arthur managed the Oasis youth work and ministry degree course prior to starting life with BMS. Louise was a full-time mother.

Here they are involved in urban community development and youth ministry.

Arthur's interests include white water kayaking, his 1973 VW Camper Van, Arsenal, reading, applied theology, playing guitar and listening to music. Louise enjoys reading fantasy novels, playing board games and supports Manchester United. They both enjoy playing badminton, cooking, socialising with friends and curries.
