Spud Murphy: Director, Ireland

Spud Murphy

Spud joined the CVM team in May 2011 establishing the work of CVM in Ireland. He's married to Lizi and they have three children; 2 boys Micah and Zach, and 1 girl Lily - she's the number one reason why Spud's in Men's Ministry!
Spud also serves as a pastor in his home church UTbelfast where he heads up their men's ministry, amongst other things, and it's also where our CVM Ireland office is based and run from. He's been involved in church leadership since the age of 27, initially as an elder before becoming a pastor within Elim.
Previously he worked as a tax man for over 12 years (cue the boos!) and at Crown Jesus Ministries as a youth worker on a voluntary and part time basis.
A self confessed 'petrol head' and walking advertisement for Apple Inc. he also enjoys sport, especially golf, cycling, rugby and football: specifically Ulster & Everton.
