Gospel Raph’s parents came to Britain in 1952 the First West Indian Missionaries
to open a Pentecostal church in Birmingham and Wales. They were the 1st Pentacostal
Preacher’s in Wales and the church was full of Holy Ghost Fire.
When similar immigrants left Jamaica and came to Britain the Martin Family House
on Fitzhamon Embankment was the first stop for many of them. The 13 children are
all truly talented which is a great testimony to God answering their loving, devoted
mother’s prayers. Many of the children have highly achieved in the music and teaching
industry we have even produced the first black published hymn writer.
Gospel Raph spent many years has a boxer he turned professional under the guidance
of Frank Warren then went on to being Barry McGuigan’s sparring partner for his last
fight in London
He had a personal encounter with God when he devoted his life to a Christian relationship
to God at the age of 28 years. Over the next few years he graduated with a BEng and
a PGCE in teaching Design & Technology in the University of Wales. In 2007 The Sports
Council of Wales honoured him with the most inspirational adult learning award for
Wales having studied in Barry College in Health& Fitness.
He spent 18 month working at the Beacon Centre in St Mellon’s as Youth Manager the
centre the staff recognised a drastic change in the youth crime was almost non existent
and the parents were grateful that more respect towards themselves and staff workers
at the centre was sown.
Presenting The Voice of God on the airways is truly an excellent tool at reaching
the isolated housebound disabled and prisoners. One listener in Park Prison gave
his life to God listening to the show. The show is proving to be a way of introducing
people from different walks of life involved in different ministries to listeners
of Radio Cardiff.
Music ranges from Traditional styles of gospel ranging from country, jazz, blue grass
and praise & worship in the first hour. The second hour starts with soul r&b, youth
music, reggae and an eclectic session. Gospel Raph hopes & prays that the show reaches
& touches the lives of all listeners in a positive & encouraging also uplifting way.
