MA BA MLitt PhD FHEA
Principal - Practical Theology & Theologies of Mission

Peter Stevenson moved to Cardiff to begin work as Principal in September 2011.

Prior to coming to Wales he taught at Spurgeon’s College in London, where he was the Director of Continuing Ministerial Development.

His doctoral research in systematic theology focused upon the person and work of Christ, and resulted in the book God in our Nature: The Incarnational Theology of John McLeod Campbell; published by Paternoster in 2004.

Before getting involved in theological education Peter served for 17 years as a Baptist minister in Bedford, Shirley (Solihull) and in south London. He enjoys teaching various aspects of Christian doctrine and practical theology, and has regularly taught undergraduate and postgraduate courses on preaching.

His experience as a preacher and teacher of preaching is reflected in two books written in partnership with the Revd Dr Stephen Wright:

Peter K. Stevenson & Stephen I. Wright, Preaching the Incarnation (Louisville: WJKP, 2010).
Peter K. Stevenson & Stephen I. Wright, Preaching the Atonement (London: T & T Clark, 2005). (Shortlisted for the Michael Ramsey Prize for Theological Writing, 2007).

For almost 20 years Peter has been developing strong links with churches in Ghana. Such cross-cultural experience throws helpful light on mission challenges facing churches in the UK, and also provides the basis for teaching a university module on ‘Majority World Voices: Global South Theologies’.

Peter is married to Susan,  who is one of the ministers at Albany Road Baptist Church in Cardiff. When they have free time they enjoy walking, swimming, reading and going to the cinema. Peter also serves as the Chairman of the Trustees of the Ghana Christian Support Group.
