Rev. Steven Jenkins

MA (Sheffield), MInstAM, DMin (cand)

College Dean & Vice Principal

Steven’s brief is to manage and oversee the general day-to-day running of the College in all the areas impacting student life with the exception of the academic programme. This covers such areas as admissions, recruitment, campus life, pastoral, care, student fees and finance and mentoring. In addition, he also teaches Early Church History on the BA programme.

Steven gained a Higher National Diploma in Business & Finance at University before attending Mattersey Hall as a student in 1990 to 1993, where he gained both the Cambridge Diploma in Religious Studies and a Diploma in Theology. He spent seven years in full-time pastoral ministry in churches in the South West of England before returning to the College in 2000, initially as Campus Pastor. As one of the first graduates of our MA programme in 1999 and with current doctoral research on Pentecostal Training, he is in a good position to understand the dynamics of ministry formation. In 2013, Steven became a Member of the Institute of Administrative Management, has had two articles published in the Journal of the European and Pentecostal Theological Association and was recently elected as Vice-Chair of Pioneers UK, a missions’ mobilising organisation.

Steven’s ministry has so far taken him to four continents of the globe and together with his wife, Deborah, and their two teenage sons, Caleb and Aaron, he is active in his local church in addition to supporting a small number of churches around the country.
