Born to Live by Pastor Norman Christie


Categories: ,


‘Born To Live The Story’ is Norman Christie’s compelling autobiography. Following his successful first book, ‘A Life Lived With Love’ which takes readers through his journey of bereavement, Pastor Norman, now takes readers on the adventure of his incredible life. It is a testimony of God’s faithfulness in the highs and lows, proving time and again, that he is an all-powerful God, in whom we can trust.

Born in 1940, Norman’s early childhood was overshadowed by the Blitz on Belfast. Life wasn’t easy, but despite the familiar sound of air raid sirens, Norman’s Christian upbringing was deeply rooted. A descendant from the ‘Hugenot’s’.

After an early career as a science technician and then working for BP, Norman heard God’s call on his life to become a Pastor. Norman writes of his servant heart for the Elim churches of Northern Ireland, of which he had the privilege of pastoring.

Living in close communion with his Lord, God was with Norman in the extension and refurbishment of the Elim church in Lisburn, providing the money needed to rebuild during the recession of 2008.

After the unexpected passing of his dear wife Doreen, on a Spanish holiday, Norman answered God’s call with his first visit to Zambia. Here he assisted developing churches, later to witness the growth from 20 to 80 churches! Norman continues to encourage Bible teachers and practical workers to be sent out to the mission field. As he quotes, ‘The Harvest is plenteous but the labourers are few’.
