Academic&Practitioner.

IMG_5746My passion is to share the overflow of God’s life every way I can.  For me, that normally looks like leading, thinking and communicating within the sphere that is the church. 

As academic, I am Lecturer in Practical Theology at London School of Theology and have a PhD in incarnational ecclesial leadership.  I teach leadership and ecclesiology, spirituality and preaching, and also supervise research in various practical theological topics.  As practitioner, I spent ten years in local church leadership.  I now preach and lead as a commissioned minister in an Anglican parish, as well as mentoring a number of emerging leaders.  I am also training to become a spiritual director in the Carmelite tradition.

In addition to my work for LST and in the local church, I serve the wider church through teaching and writing.  Currently, I lecture on the Evangelical Alliance’s Public Leader programme and, in the past, was involved as an Associate of LICC’s Imagine project and as a regular lecturer for the C.S. Lewis Institute Fellows Program (London).  I have given seminars at both Spring Harvest and New Wine and serve as a guest preacher in various local churches.  My writing crosses the academic/practice divide, with publications in a number of peer-reviewed journals as well as more popular-level publications.  I am most proud, however, of my book: Ecclesial Leadership as Friendship.

I trained originally as a City 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!
