Pastor Malcolm Dyer and his wife Denise joined Elim Ryedale Church in September 2017.

They met and married in Liverpool after Malcolm joined the leadership team of the Elim Church in Liverpool and they have two grown-up daughters.  They have ministered together for over twenty five years in Elim churches in Chester, Stoke, Nantwich, Formby and for fifteen years at Elim’s Training College.  They both have a heart for the local church and have a great desire to see every person know their identity in Christ and reach their full potential in Christ.  They both enjoy walking and are looking forward to exploring the wonderful Yorkshire countryside and coast.
