Chloe 0414

My passion is to make disciples of Christ and so I love to share all that I’m learning from both academic and practical contexts as widely as I can.  I am Lecturer in Practical Theology at London School of Theology and have a PhD in incarnational ecclesial leadership.  Alongside leadership and ecclesiology, I get excited about disciple-making, spiritual formation and preaching.  I love that as well as handling these subjects in an academic capacity I also got to spend a wonderful decade practising them on a church in West London.

Because I want to reach as many people as possible with the joy of Jesus’ invitation to follow him, I give the rest of my time to freelance lecturing, guest preaching, writing and mentoring.  In the past, I have been involved as an Associate of LICC’s Imagine project which helps churches to focus on disciple-making and I have been a regular lecturer for the C.S. Lewis Institute Fellows Program (London), as well as engaging in a number of one-off teaching sessions.  My writing crosses the academic/practice divide, with publications in the Expository Times, Evangelical Quarterly and the Journal of the European Pentecostal Theological Association, together with articles for online magazines and devotional materials for Scripture Union.  I am most proud, however, of my book: Ecclesial Leadership as Friendship.

My background is originally as a City-trained lawyer and – in addition to the doctorate – I hold two Masters degrees, one of which is from Cambridge University, as well as various professional qualifications.  If you are interested in hearing more about me, come on over to The Art of Steering to hear my voice and to experience my heartfelt passion for Jesus and the church!
