our leaders

We are led by a team of two elders with the assistance of two deacons:


Luke Jenner (full time) and Andrew Binns

To contact the elders, email

David Bownas

Iulian Anghelache





Luke trusted in Jesus Christ for the first time when he was 12 years old, after hearing the life story of a former terrorist from Northern Ireland who had become a Christian in prison. He gained a biochemistry degree at Aberystwyth University, before training for pastoral ministry at London Seminary.


A position as an assistant pastor followed in Hertfordshire, during which time he met his wife Miriam. They married in 2010 and moved that same year to Halifax, when Luke took up the role of pastor here at Grace Baptist Halifax. During that time they have been blessed with four daughters.

Andrew Binns was born in Halifax and has been a Christian since his mid-teens. He is married to Zonia; they have two grown-up children and two grandchildren.  


He has been a member of Grace Baptist Church since 1986. His ministry as an elder includes caring for the members, preaching, teaching and evangelism.


For most of his life he has supported his local football team, Halifax Town. He also enjoys music, reading, photography, walking, and meeting up for conversation and coffee!
