Steve shares uplifting story at Norwich dinner
Steve Mott’s early life was crippled by family rejection, but his eventual story of recovery and subsequent service in the wider community was shared at a Dinner Evening at the Best Western Brook Hotel, Bowthorpe, Norwich, NR5 9JB on Friday, November 13.
Now a gifted speaker, Steve’s inspiring story has been “a key that has unlocked the lives of many people” who have faced similar traumas and challenges.
As a boy, his world collapsed after a parental divorce - dejected and lonely, he would walk the streets till bedtime - “or do crazy, stupid things, just to win acceptance.”
After serving in the Royal Navy (including submarines), Steve’s journey to recovery really began in 1986 when, at the age of 31, he was invited to Bowthorpe Church.
He wasn’t a churchgoer and had no idea what to expect, but it led to a life-changing encounter with God’s unconditional love. Eventually, Steve and his wife, Elaine, became involved in service in deprived areas, seeing families and communities changed. Their work has attracted links with ministries in many nations. “We’ve seen miracle after miracle,” says Steve.
Their faith has also sustained them through massive family loss after their son, David, died of lymphoma in 2004 at the age of 22.
Visitors are welcome to invite friends to our monthly dinners at the Brook Hotel. These events are arranged by the Norwich chapter of the Full Gospel Businessmen, (FGB) part of a worldwide fellowship in more than 130 nations. FGB is endorsed by the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, who says: “We need more men like them.”
