Melvin Tinker, who died this week, was a consummate pastor-theologian who was valiant for gospel truth. The prolific author and church planter was well respected among conservative evangelicals, having overseen the growth of one of the largest Anglican churches in northern England. He later made an “orderly exit” from the Church of England, believing it had "gone adrift from its biblical moorings." His friends remember him as a gospel-centred man who wanted Jesus to be glorified. He was booked to speak at our forthcoming conference for young people in January, but is now in glory beholding the face of his blessed Saviour.
