The Remarkable story of Mike McDade. 'Academically, you're use, you should not be here.' This criticism from a tutor was not what Mike McDade would have chosen to recall on the day he became a Baptist Minister. It made him wonder, 'Hasn't someone, somewhere, made a huge mistake?' As a small boy hs ambiton was just 'to be rich'. After spending his teens on the streets he discovered a talent for wheeler-dealing which allowed him to create his own business, buy expensive cars and holiday homes. Now married to Pat he wanted nothing more, not Christianity. So how did he end up and ordained minister? But this was God's plan for Mike McDade.
