The Revd Steve Wild

Born in Rochdale, Steve Wild is a proud Lancastrian, but is at home in his adopted Cornwall where he is chair of district.

Steve has been a Methodist minister since 1983 and has served in Cornwall, Preston and Cliff College (as tutor, connexional director of evangelism and acting principal).

He is as comfortable in the pulpit as on the television, where he presented a series on Westcountry Television, interviewing people about their faith. You may also have seen him on episodes of BBC TV's An Island Parish about the Sicily Isles.

Steve is as outgoing in his personality as in his faith. "My agenda is all about mission," he says. "I want to encourage people in mission and want to enable the churches, even the smallest ones, to be able to think about mission. I don't believe the time is too late for Christians to rediscover hope or to reconnect with their communities. I'm a great believer in finding fresh ways to communicate the Good News about Jesus."

Steve lives in Truro with his artist wife Laura, their three daughters and his puppet Clarence the Frog.
