WHAT ROAD TAKES A MIDDLESBROUGH LAD FROM A LIFE OF CRIME AND ADDICTION TO THE BIBLE?
Gram Seed was that lad, written off by family, neighbours, teachers and the police as a lost cause, his early life taking him through shoplifting, football hooliganism, multiple stabbings and beatings, alcoholism, drug addiction, homelessness and several jail sentences to a six-day coma. One Step Beyond tells of his journey from despair and near death to hope, faith and new life.
Gram tells how, following his miraculous recovery and rehabilitation and with the strength of his new-found faith, he has established the Sowing Seeds Ministries – through which he shows those treading the same treacherous road he was travelling that there is a much better alternative.
Gram is living proof that Jesus is alive and is still transforming lives today.
Vicar, Holy Trinity Church, Brompton
