Rev Alan McKnight, Pastor,
Harper Church, Glasgow
As a teenager the
Lord saved me by His grace, through the influence of the woman who is now my
wife and the encouragement of a man from Papua New Guinea who was visiting
Glasgow in 1988 for the World Baptist Youth Conference.
Following a career in local government management which I
enjoyed greatly, I became pastor of Plains Evangelical Church, Airdrie, where I
served for 12 years. For the past six years it has been my privilege to serve
as Lead Pastor at Harper Church in Glasgow. During that time the church has
become increasingly multi-national. I also serve as Chairman of the Fellowship
of Independent Evangelical Churches in the UK.
My wife Pamela and I have three children and three grandchildren.
