About Sam Davies
Sam Davies is an ordained pastor who has served churches in both London and the provinces before the invitation to lead the Communication Department of the South England Conference in 2015.
He began his studies for ministry in 1989 at Valley View University in Accra, Ghana, where he spent 18 months. He subsequently enrolled at Newbold College of Higher Education in 1991 where he studied Theology and Communication before pursuing an MA in Journalism at the University of Westminster, London.
Sam has a keen interest in current affairs and considers it necessary for an informed ministry. His varied interests have led him to pursue many other courses, including a Diploma in Public Relations with the PRCA. He is a member of the Chartered Institute of Journalists [CIoJ], a member of the Public Relations & Communication Association [PRCA] and a member of the Institute of Internal Communications [IoIC]. His membership with the IoIC has enabled him to start the professional MA in Internal Communication Manage- ment course with Solent University in September 2019.
His other interests in ministry include helping families resolve their difficulties and preparing young couples for marriage. Sam trained in Therapeutic Counselling and as a Certified Family Life Educator [CFLE].
In his current role, Sam intends to work with local churches to enable them to become more visible in their communities. He believes the Seventh-day Adventist Church has so much to offer its communities and can be a positive influence in our society.
Sam is married to his beloved wife Marcia, and they have three children.
