Andy Poulsom (Director)
Andy is a former actor, youth theatre director, teacher and advertising agency director who came to full time youth ministry in 2006 after a transforming experience in the Spirit.
His wealth of strategic, creative and leadership experience has enabled innovation and professionalism to thrive as TTT has transitioned to the charity it is today.
Andy's role includes leading/developing the youth work team, devising/supporting youth related groups and programmes, building and developing key partnerships with stake holder churches, school staff teams and other youth focused organisations.
He is also a regular speaker in local churches and at youth events.
"I enjoy meeting young people at their point of need and supporting them in unlocking their potential, whether in a faith, educational or a social context. I'm passionate about delivering the gospel message to a wider audience in dynamic, relevant, accessible and memorable ways; bringing scripture alive. It's a privilege to walk in faith with young people, especially when they are taking their tentative first steps."
Matt grew up in Godalming but has moved around a bit since returning to work with the Trinity Trust Team.
It was when Matt was 16 at Soul Survivor that Matt felt his Christian faith go from black and white to colour and he realised that the God of the Bible is just as active and powerful today.
When Matt left Godalming College he interned with Busbridge and Hambledon Church before moving to Blackheath, London to train as a youth minister.
In July 2015, Matt graduated with a First Class degree in Theology and Youth Ministry from St Mellitus College and moved to Lee Abbey Devon where he helped lead the youth and children's team. He also met Emily, his wife, there and they moved to Godalming together in August 2016.
Matt's hobbies include watching good films, reading heavy books about theology, sailing, cycling and local sports.
Matt seeks to guide young people into a deeper relationship with Jesus and share his passion for theology.
