Tough Talk is made up of a group of men with backgrounds as ex-bouncers and ex-London East End hard men who have turned their backs on their past. Many of the team are very keen powerlifters. All the team feel that having let God into their lives they now have an urgent need to share their experiences with the hope of helping others. They have felt that the message of Hope in Jesus Christ reaches people from all backgrounds and age groups.
Team member Arthur White, a world champion Powerlifter, whose life spiralled out of control. His encounter with Jesus changed everything.
Team Member Ian McDowall worked as a night club bouncer at the age of 18. By the time he was 24 violence and anger had taken over his life. He pleaded with God to change him and He did.
