Joseph is Tutor and Lecturer in Church History at St Mellitus College. He has a Masters Degree in Greek and Roman History from the University of Oxford and is currently completing doctoral research on conservative evangelicals in the twentieth century. In addition to his work with SMC, Joseph plays an active part in the strategy and governance of the national Church of England as a member of the Archbishops’ Council. He and his wife Nia live as pioneer missioners on a housing estate in North London.
Joseph’s PhD research focuses on the summer camps run by EJH Nash at Iwerne Minster in the interwar years and mid-twentieth century. He is considering the links between Nash’s ministry to the public schools and evangelical leadership formation, in particular conservative evangelical attitudes to class, masculinity and holiness.
