Favourite Bible verse

 I have a great passion for the Bible and dont really have a favourite. When Jaci and I starting dating the verse that lots of people gave us was Jeremiah 29:11, we have a love spoon in the house with it and also on our silver wedding anniversary Jaci gave me a bracelet with this verse on, so its very special: "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future" Jeremiah 29:11

More on our Pastor:

It was whilst working at 3 Arch Press in Talbot Green on the Coedcae Lane Industrial estate that God called John to the ministry when he was 22, after having a vision of a black and white number plate with the words on it Rev John Hall. 

He began preaching from this point around the valleys, Cardiff and youth events. After getting married to Jaci in 1991 and being blessed with 3 boys in 1996 John and Jaci felt it was the right time to step out in faith, leave his printing job and enter South Wales Baptist College in Cardiff in 1996. During that time John received the Batchelor of Divinity degree and also received a Diploma in Pastoral Theology and was student Pastor at Bethel Baptist Church, Treharris for 2 years.

After finishing his studies John was called to Bethany Baptist Church, Caldicot in 2000, where he served for 17 years until 2017, after that he had the opportunity to help plant a church in the Rhondda valley for 18 months.

John has been married to Jaci who is from Senghenydd, Caerphilly since 1991 and they now have 4 children, Sam, James, Luke and Hannah, Sam is married to Lily and they have a son called Judah who was born in 2018
