About our speakers:

Dr Mark Stephens – Lecturer in New Testament, Sydney Missionary & Bible College (SMBC)

Before coming to SMBC, Mark spent over a decade lecturing in theology and integrative studies at Excelsia College, before a two-year stint serving as a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Public Christianity. His doctoral studies focused on the theme of new creation within the book of Revelation, and his thesis, Annihilation or Renewal? The Meaning and Function of New Creation in the Book of Revelation, was published by Mohr Siebeck.

Mark is currently researching and writing on spiritual formation and the book of Revelation, representations of Jesus in contemporary culture, and the place of humility and hospitality in Christian thinking.

Mark lives in the north-western suburbs of Sydney with his wife Linda and their three children. They attend St Paul’s Anglican Church, Castle Hill where Mark serves as a children’s leader. In his spare time he enjoys hiking and playing cricket.
