Leading para-church organisation Ascension Trust, the umbrella organisation of Street Pastors and founded by Rev Les Isaac OBE, recently commemorated their 30th anniversary with a special dinner at Westminster Central Hall.
The charity, which started out as an organisation that led youth missions, has expanded and now runs a range of initiatives, including youth leadership programmes and health campaigns in the UK and abroad.
During the celebration, attended by people from across the UK, Marcia Dixon MBE, Editor/Publisher of Keep The Faith Magazine presented Rev Isaac with a lifetime achievement award for his work and service to the Christian community and wider society.
He stepped down from his role as CEO of the Ascension Trust in 2022, and it is now led by Bejoy Pal.
Ms Dixon said: “Rev Isaac is a church leader with a heart to build God’s Kingdom and serve the wider community. He has also, over the years, been a big supporter of Keep The Faith magazine, so it was an honour to present Rev Isaac with a lifetime achievement award. It is well deserved.”
