About John

Officially Dr John Kirkby CBE, but much prefers ‘Johnny Boy’. 3 times winner Sunday Times best leader. Honorary Doctor of Bradford Uni. Founder of Isaiah 61 Movement and Christians Against Poverty. John had a tough life after his father died. He was arrested while debt collecting and charged with aggravated theft when a repossession went wrong in the 80’s. Praise God he was eventually found not guilty and is now a front line Police chaplain with Leeds west. Only God! John took up the personal challenge to share life, faith and Jesus when God gave him Isaiah 61:1, and has founded i61m to see every Christian confidently doing the same.

John Kirkby CAP and i61m comes to Harrogate Netmakers
‘Imagine a church community where everyone is committed to living their whole lives for Christ.’

Netmakers seek to help churches equip and release the whole body of Christ into whole life mission.

Your frontline is the place where you spend much of your time, where you meet people who don’t know Jesus. It’s the place God has called you, the place of possibility and potential. Whatever your age, employed or not everyone has a frontline.

Netmakers are on journey to discover, learn and grow in whole-life discipleship. We have partnered with LICC to help us to do this.  Over the last year, Netmakers hosted five events for leaders and church members where we have been joined by Mark Greene, Mission Champion at LICC and Ken Benjamin, Director of Church Relationships at LICC. As we seek to equip the whole body of Christ to be, do and say the gospel on our frontlines, we have looked at a number of areas including:

  • Everyday faith, everyday fruitfulness.
  • Reading the bible through whole-life eyes.
  • Conversation about culture
