Steve Wild — President of the Conference 2015/2016
Born in Rochdale in 1954, Steve Wild gave his life to Christ at a Cliff College Mission in 1968. He worked as a printer but heard God calling him to the Methodist ministry when he visited Taize.
Married to Laura, an artist, he began 15 years of circuit ministry first in Preston and then in St Ives, Cornwall. In 1998 he became Cornwall District Evangelism Enabler and then Connexional Evangelism Enabler Coordinator as well as working part-time with Westcountry TV presenting programmes about Christianity in the South West.
From 2004 Steve worked at Cliff College as Director of Evangelism and tutor. He returned to Cornwall in 2008 to become Chair of the Cornwall District. You may even have seen him in an episode of the BBC's 'An Island Parish'.
The contrast of Steve's urban roots in Lancashire and his ministry in rural Cornwall gives him broad insight, particularly concerning people experiencing hardship and poverty. Steve is known widely as a man of compassion, prayer, love and encouragement for people of all ages and backgrounds.
