Vanessa Proctor – PA, Hospitality Leader & Safeguarding
Hi my name is Vanessa (known by everyone as Ness) and I have been at Elim Oasis Church for almost 5 years, during this time I have felt such love and friendship in this amazing fellowship. My walk with God has grown amazingly during this time and I am honoured to be part of the Leadership Team. Over the past two years I have been working alongside Alan as his PA and it is a real pleasure to work with such a true disciple of Jesus. I have learnt so much about The Elim Movement during this time, and more importantly what God wants me to do for my service to Him. Ness is married to Seth.
