This Good Friday, evangelist Rico Tice takes us into the book of Luke to search out the essence of God! He will take us to the cross in all its shock, to see God as we have never seen him before. Listen, learn and worship with us on this Good Friday edition of Equipped with Chris Brooks.
Rico Tice is the Senior Minister (Evangelism) at All Souls, Langham Place in London. Joining in 1994 during the later years of the ministry of John Stott, his main role is to help the hundreds of enquirers about the Christian faith who come through the doors of the church each year. He has also developed the Christianity Explored course, which introduces people to Jesus through studying the Gospel of Mark. Born in Chile in 1966, to the son of a businessman and a nurse, Rico grew up in Uganda and Zaire. He studied history at Bristol University and trained for ordination at Wycliffe College, Oxford (when he wasn’t playing rugby.)

Over 10,000 courses per year now run globally across the denominational spectrum in over 90 countries and the material has been translated into more than 20 languages.
