Meet Seidel Abel Boanerges
Seidel is our new Director of Outreach at Capernwray Bible School. His role will see him working alongside the rest of our Bible School staff in teaching and training our students. He is also responsible for organising our local outreach opportunities for students throughout their time with us as well as the 10-day outreach event which takes place in February each year.
He was born and raised in Hyderabad, India, and before coming to the UK, he worked with GE Consumer Finance as a business analyst. He trained in theology and ministry at Moorlands College (B.A Hons) and Spurgeon’s College (M.Th), and is currently pursuing doctoral studies in homiletics and apologetics.
He was ordained as a Baptist minister by the Baptist Union of Great Britain and joined Rosebery Park Baptist Church as their minister responsible for mission and outreach. Before coming to Capernwray, he worked with Moorlands College as their development officer and a part time lecturer. During his time in Bournemouth, besides being an itinerant preacher at various churches, he spoke regularly on a popular apologetics radio show on 90.1 Hope FM, discussing theological and contemporary issues regarding the Christian faith. He is a very passionate apologist and he loves to proclaim the uniqueness of Jesus Christ and the difference that Jesus can bring into one’s life. His primary hobby as a devout Indian is to play cricket! Nonetheless, he also loves playing badminton and table tennis.
When asked about his hopes for his new role at Capernwray, he said ‘I am very excited to be here. It was quite a tough journey for the past five months, but I am really happy that everything worked out well according to God’s plan for Capernwray and myself. I am really looking forward to meeting the staff, students, volunteers and the local churches and organisations, and to be working with them’.
