Meet Our Youth Director

Finn Clifford | [email protected]

Finn was born and raised in South London with his two sisters. After living in Australia for several years, he eventually landed in Sparta, NJ in 2013, and it was then that the Lord started not only calling Him to Himself in salvation, but also to dive headfirst into ministry. Completing his formal training at Lancaster Bible College, Finn is eagerly passionate about evangelism and apologetics, and equipping the Church to live on mission. In 2022, Finn married his lovely bride, Gabby, and together they have collectively served in Sparta Church for nearly 20 years. Finn is also an avid soccer fan, often found cheering for Crystal Palace on a Saturday morning, or out on the field having a "kick about" with his students. Finn's greatest hope is to faithfully serve in building God's kingdom here, seeing as many as God gives come to know the radical, life-changing truth of the gospel, as he did at 20 years old.
