Steve Murray

Steve's mime ministry began in 1997 when Steve finished his training in Los Angeles where he studied under Todd Farley at the Mimeistry International School of Mime and Bible college. It all began when Steve was given a prophetic vision by a church leader. The vision was of Steve with his face all white. Soon after this vision Steve was shown a video of Todd Farley and as he watched, God so clearly spoke, telling him that this is what he must do. Only then the penny dropped because the mime on the video had a white face! From that day on all the doors opened for Steve and his ministry has grown from strength to strength.

Steve now lives in Chelmsford, Essex with his wife Debbie and children Jessica, Aliya and Grace. Steve met Debbie at a mime workshop back in 1997 and were married the same year. Steve will be sharing with us his extensive repertoire during the conference.
