Meet Martin

After spending 15 years employed by Barclays Bank PLC, Rev. Martin Durham received a clear call to leave banking and pursue the office of evangelist, becoming the founding director of Kerygma180 (K180) in May 2001. Complimenting his call to actively proclaim the gospel ‘on the streets’ and to equip young evangelists and leaders, Martin presently chairs the UK 'Emerging Evangelists Institute' (an initiative of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association), and is the European Director of the 'International Leadership Institute', of which History Makers is a part.


Martin is ordained as a Baptist Minister (Evangelist) by the Baptist Union of Great Britain, and lives in London with his wife Rachel, and daughters, Annie & Eliza.
