Roger Speare was born in Manchester, England, studied science at Cambridge University and has pursued a long and sporadically successful business career, latterly morphing into social enterprise.
After experiencing his first "God Moment" at the age of eight he embarked on a spiritual journey that has explored many dimensions of Christian life and faith while staying in touch with his evangelical roots. He is a keen Bible student and teacher.
Roger lives in Bolton, Lancashire making large decorative tents and overseeing the local Emmaus Community. He climbs mountains for fun and prepares for purgatory by supporting Luton Town Football Club!
