Pastor Mick Fleming
In this episode, Jason speaks to a man with a true redemption story. Pastor Mick Fleming was sexually abused and learnt of the tragic death of his sister, all within the space of 48 hours. That trauma started a downward spiral that resulted in years of drug addiction, funded by criminality. As a drug runner and debt collector, Mick was arrested for murder twice, armed robbery three times and committed countless firearms offences. Just as he was about to inflict more pain on another victim, he 'saw the light', experiencing what he describes as a powerful religious moment. Since then, Pastor Mick has devoted his life to his community, passionately tackling poverty in his native Burnley with his charity, Church on the Street Ministries - which you can find online at cots-ministries.com
