Dr. Peter Cockrell
Peter is an Associate Pastor based in Essex, UK, where he has responsibilities for preaching and teaching. He also serves as a director of OC UK, an international global mission agency. Peter’s itinerant bible teaching ministry takes him to East Africa, SE and central Asia, and the Middle East.

Peter is married to Emma, and they are very proud grandparents!
‘Already Not Yet’ is shorthand for the between-the-times experience of living in the Kingdom of God, now. ‘Already’, through accepting Christ and receiving his Spirit, and ‘not yet’ because this foretaste of heaven is partial and lived-out in an imperfect, fallen world. God’s purposes in redemption are inaugurated but not yet consummated. Power in weakness describes this tension perfectly, preventing triumphalism, on the one hand, and defeatism on the other.
The gospel inspires and drives all I do!
