Ross is married to Irene and they have three children, Abbi, Ruairidh and Alexander. He was born and brought up in Inverness where he did his schooling and along with his family he attended the APC. Before going into full time ministry Ross worked as a car mechanic but having a burden to preach the gospel he studied at Highland Theological College. Following his studies he was ordained and inducted to a Church of Scotland pastorate in the Isle of Lewis. More recent circumstances encouraged Ross to apply to the APC ministry and in early 2013 he was accepted as an APC minister. He is delighted to be back in the denomination that he knew so well from formative years and is encouraged by the commitment and sincerity of the APC to gospel ministry.
