CU Staff Worker in our North West region.
My name is Oluwatobi Emmanuel Fagbemi but people call me Tobi for short. I grew up in SE London and then I moved to Chester for university where I studied Theology and also met my amazing wife Miriam Fagbemi who for some crazy reason gave me a chance when I asked her out on a date. Five years later and she is still here and we have been married for two and a half years.
I will be working as a Staff Worker for the University of Manchester, The University of Bolton and the University Campus of Football Business and I am extremely excited about starting this role. One of the things I am excited for is to be able to help, empower and just be there for the students in their relationship with Jesus and encourage and help them to reach other students with the gospel.
My years at university were amongst the best and the most transforming years of my life. During my time in university I had the privilege of meeting with students from different parts of the country and life, who were radically different from the norm. These students had come to trust Jesus as Lord and Saviour and had been deeply transformed by him. I am beyond grateful that I lived alongside these friends who helped me to see and savour Jesus above everything else.
For this reason I am really excited about working with UCCF as the Staff Worker in Manchester, serving and investing in students doing for them what my Christian Union did for me. These students will be in one of the largest and most diverse cities in the world. Tens of thousands of students will call Manchester their home for a few years and it is my passion that during these years, many of them will become disciples of Jesus and then go on to make more disciples of Jesus. Students are best placed to reach other students and I will be fully behind them. I am looking forward to helping, encouraging, envisioning and equipping these young men and women to see the Kingdom of God extended across their campuses.
I would love for you to partner with me in this exciting vision by standing alongside me in prayer and financial support so that many would hear the good news of Jesus and have their lives forever changed.
