Steve Coles is 60 and has spent the past 3 years living, studying and serving with Ellel Ministries, latterly at its Centre in Scotland, Blairmore House.

Steve has a personal insight and lived experience of gender confusion. After a lifetime’s struggle with cross-gender feelings, Steve transitioned, aged 37, before radically rediscovering his Christian faith in 2017 and his male identity in 2019.

Steve has recently married Elizabeth (who says she thinks he is “ace”) and together they are currently exploring ways of sharing Steve’s testimony of overcoming gender confusion in a loving and compassionate way”
