Leadership

 

 

Rev Steve Barnwell
Steve and his wife Julie joined us in January 2020 after serving as Minister of Oakham Baptist Church for nearly 7 years. Prior to that Steve was Associate Minister at Shrewsbury Baptist Church. They have 3 grown-up sons, and a rising tally of grandchildren.
 
Since becoming a Christian aged 19, Steve served as a lay leader in several churches whilst pursuing a career within the banking industry. At the tender age of 45, however, God made it clear that it was time to follow a ‘call’ and take a leap of faith to study theology.
 
Spare time is spent enjoying grandchildren, walking (especially the hills and coast of Wales… and now the Peak District) and all things related to old aircraft (anorak warning!).
