John Poysti – Director of Torchbearers Sweden 


Life is good, because God is good! I can’t think of anything more fulfilling in life than to observe God work in a community of believers. Watching others being gradually transformed more and more into the likeness of Christ, and as a result being transformed yourself – that is kingdom living at its very best. Holsby has provided me with a unique opportunity to invest in the youth of this generation as I draw on a lifetime of God’s grace and mercy with which He has blessed me.

My life is further enriched by some key relationships. Christine is my best friend and faithful companion in life. And we have three beautiful daughters, two wonderful sons-in-law and three fantastic grandsons who bring us more joy than we could ever deserve.

Currently, I find relaxation through reading theological blogs, riding my mountain bike on forest trails, keeping my woodshed stocked and tidy, and picking or gathering whatever is edible in the forests around Holsby.

I find great comfort and encouragement in a verse from Paul’s letter to the Philippians: “And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” (1:6)

That’s me!
