The keynote speakers are:-

 Glen Marshall

Glen comes from an unchurched background and was converted at the age of fifteen.  He has been preaching since he was sixteen – 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), The University of Manchester and Spurgeon’s College.

After twenty 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 regional advisor for 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, telly 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.

Sian Murray-Williams

Sian is a Baptist Minister now living in Canterbury, Kent, with husband Stuart and mother Betty, for whom she is a full time carer. Formerly, Co-ordinator of Ministerial Formation at Bristol Baptist College where she taught for eight years until 2015, Sian is now a spiritual director, mentor and retreat facilitator.  Prior to all of that she was the Minister of Littlemore Baptist Church in Oxford, an instinctively multi-voiced community, which worked creatively on re-developing the church site. Before training for the ministry at Regent’s Park College, Oxford, she worked for BMS WorldMission for 12 years in PR and HR, and prior to that started out working life in Washington DC with the Baptist World Alliance. For all those who might think that she needs to get out more, she enjoys the theatre, concerts of all sorts, reading, walking, the company of good friends and good food, all of which she has discovered, in the words of Ronald Rollheiser, ‘keep the soul mellow.’
