Rev. Peter Read
Vice Principal, Church Leadership Track Leader and School of Ministry Leader
Drawing on his own extensive experience within leadership and pastoral ministry, Pete’s primary focus is the training of church leaders. In addition to teaching at Regents, Pete functions as a visiting lecturer to the Apostolic Faith Bible College in Kolding, Denmark, and trains church leaders in India, China and the Philippines in partnership with Elim Global. Pete also engages in leadership training and teaching at a wide range of UK local churches, where he shares his twin passions: for the Church to be engaged in outward looking mission and for servant hearted leadership that blends integrity and emotional intelligence. Pete started in church leadership in 1981 as the Pastor’s Assistant at Bethshan Tabernacle before planting Reddish Community Church in 1983, where he later became Senior Pastor. Pete was Senior Associate Pastor at Bedworth Christian Centre in Warwickshire (later renamed King's Community Church) from 1999-2008, after which he moved to Regents. Pete obtained an MA in Theology from the University of Manchester (Nazarene Theological College) in 1998 and also worked as a qualified architect subsequent to gaining a BA in Architecture from Manchester Metropolitan University (1980).
