Steve Wild has been one of my Facebook friends for some time now. And I was delighted last year to know that Steve is to be the next President of the Methodist Conference for 2015/2016. sff//
Steve Wild, who is married to Laura, served fifteen years in circuit ministry; firstly from 1983 in Preston where Lois and Phoebe were born, which included prison chaplaincy, then in St Ives, from 1989, where Timna was born and he became
In 1998 he became Cornwall District Evangelism Enabler and then Connexional Evangelism Enabler Coordinator as well as working part-time with Westcountry TV presenting programmes about Christianity in the South West.
From 2004 he worked at Cliff College as Director of Evangelism and tutor. He returned to Cornwall in 2008 to become Chair of the Cornwall District. Steve currently works closely with the Bishop of Truro, they conduct regular outreach missions
around communities in Cornwall. In 2013, together with seven other denominations, they signed an Ecumenical Declaration of Intent.
In 2015 Cornwall will be at the centre of bicentenary celebrations for the Bible Christian denomination that began in
their county. The contrast of Steve’s urban roots in Lancashire and his ministry in rural Cornwall gives him broad insight, particularly concerning people experiencing hardship and poverty. Steve is known widely as a man of compassion, prayer,
love and encouragement for people of all ages and backgrounds.
I am sure that Steve will be an excellent – and very effective – President of the Methodist Conference
With many peaceful blessings
