As we pursue our goal to help people find and follow Jesus, CFC is honoured to have an Advisory Team made up of John Andrews, Donna Jennings and Stephen Matthew to whom we can turn for valuable advice, wisdom and regular support.
Stephen Matthew is a gifted Bible teacher, author and committed church-builder with over 40 years of experience in Christian ministry. After serving as both Senior Associate Pastor and Bible College Principal for many years, he now spends his time serving a growing relational network of churches and leaders in the UK and Europe as an advisor, speaker and hands-on strategist.
Stephen and his wife Kay have four adult children and ten wonderful grandchildren.
Donna Jennings grew up and now lives in East Belfast with her husband, Nathaniel and two children Micah and Tabitha.
She trained as a teacher in Stranmillis, before living for 8 years in Bangladesh, where she met Nathaniel. During this time, she completed a MTh in Missiology, exploring how the gospel, church and mission can best emerge from and within a cultural context.
Having practised and explored this in Bangladesh, and journeyed into the world of justice, equality and advocacy through her son's profound disability - she loves and lives to bring this missional thinking to our current western cultural context. In all her roles, Donna seeks to help the church to fully understand and love, to subversively embody and proclaim, to spiritually seek and pray the good news of the Kingdom right into our places and spaces, today.
John has been in full-time Church leadership since 1987. Though called to the UK, John has ministered in almost 40 nations of the world. Based in his local church New Life Church, Scunthorpe, he has authored fifteen books and currently serves on the Apostolic Team of One Church Gloucester and wider network, while also being released to teach to a wider trans-local context. As a leader, teacher and author John has a passion to equip and inspire leaders as well as empower followers of Jesus into effective lifestyle and service.
