14th May – College Sunday with Glen Marshall, Northern Baptist College
We welcome The Revd Glen Marshall to our annual College Sunday morning service. Glen is co-principal of Northern Baptist College in Manchester, where James, our Lead Minister is an Associate Tutor.
A bit about Glen:
Glen comes from an unchurched background and was converted at the age of 15.
He has been preaching since he was 16 – with an occasional pause for breath. As a teenager, he was a member of a Wesleyan Reform Church and was actively involved in Youth for Christ. He has degrees in theology from London Bible College (now London School of Theology), University of Manchester and Spurgeon’s College.
After 20 years pastoring churches in Altrincham, Barnsley and Wakefield, Glen became a tutor at Northern Baptist College in 2004 and was appointed Co-Principal in 2013. He teaches courses on Mission and Homiletics and serves as programme leader for the B.A. His research interests include mission and western culture and contemporary approaches to preaching.
Glen has long enjoyed speaking at conferences, preaching and working with other church leaders in this country and overseas. He is a former Co-Chair of Fresh Streams (formerly Mainstream) and is currently the Chair of Urban Expression in the North West of England, as well as serving on the Council of Reference for BMS World Mission.
Beyond the world of ministry and theology, Glen, a lifelong Manchester United fan, enjoys listening to music, learning to play the saxophone, reading, film, good television and walking his dog Molly. He and his wife Kathy, a special needs teacher, have two adult children whom they hope will soon become financially independent.
