MEET THE TEAM
FOUNDER & CEO
GARETH ANGEL THOMPSON
A working class lad from Keighley, just outside of Bradford, I am married to Beth, with two girls, Isla and Isabella, I am a committed Christian, Husband and Father. I have been a wrestler for over 12 years and have driven the charity since the beginning. An evangelist with a proven track record, I founded GT Ministries in 2018 to use my testimony, in combination with wrestling, to reach people with the Gospel, and tell them about Jesus. I have since grown the work through to 2024, where we became a charity. Having experience in leading projects, leading ministries, leading conference teams, sales, fundraising and marketing, media and public speaking, I bring this all to the fore as the driving force behind Kingdom. Building relationships, generating leads and key funders. I also head up the creative, production and culture of our events. Talent relations are important to me, as is reaching the unchurched with the Gospel.
I currently work leading the education team at an influential social justice think tank, whose mission is to put social justice back at the heart of UK politics. Prior to this I led the policy and PR work at a UK-wide children’s charity. I have also previously worked as a Fundraising Project Manager for a UK-wide poverty-relief charity and in the Parliamentary office of a government minister. I have spoken at events and churches of varying sizes across the UK and I stood as a Parliamentary candidate in the 2015 and 2017 General Elections. I have regularly featured on media, including Sky News, LBC and TWR. In my spare time, I am a season ticket holder at Huddersfield Town and I love spending time with my two little nephews.
