Meet the team

Hi, I'm Chris Wild and I came up with the idea for Apply after years of working in youth ministry. I've written lots of the sessions and have worked with the others to see my vision come to life! I live in Peterborough, and currently work for a local charity called CROPS who run outreach and mentoring programmes in local secondary schools. I live with my wife Hannah and our three children Zac, Jack-Noah, and Sienna. You can often find me watching golf, eating sweets, or cheering on Sheffield Wednesday.

I'm Daniel Beckett and I have done lots of the behind the scenes organising for Apply, as well as writing a number of sessions. I am the Pastor of Godmanchester Baptist Church and have worked in Youth Ministry for many years. My wife Hayley and I have 3 children, and if you come to visit you might be lucky enough to sample some of my prizewinning sweetcorn.

Hello, my name's Beca McKay, and you'll see my artwork and graphic design on each page of Apply. I've also written some of the sessions. I am a youth and schools worker in Surrey, where I live with my husband Callum and our cat, Toast. I love playing around doing portraits on procreate.

Hi, I'm Danielle Newton and I have done all the proofreading for Apply, as well as running the social media channels. I live in Peterborough with my husband Tom and our son Reuben, and I work as a teaching assistant. I own too many books, try to bake bread, and am terrified of horses.
