Having completed a Masters by Research exploring the experiences of women ministers in the Elim Pentecostal Church in the UK,  I am currently undertaking a PhD in which I am researching Pentecostal hermeneutics, especially concerning the views of local church leaders regarind women in ministry.

I have been a Pentecostal Minister since 2002, and returned to academia in 2014. I teach the Old Testament at church leadership level, at home and abroad. And continue to be actively involved in teaching and preaching locally.

Research interests

I am interested in the history of Pentecostalism in the UK. In particular I am researching various views regarding the role of women in the Elim Pentecostal church. I am also interested in the historical role of women in Elim, covering the period from Elim's inception in 1915 to the present.

Pentecostal practice, in particular hermeneutics forms a large part of my research interests. Emprical research for my Masters, PhD and outside gravitate around this aspect of theology.
