New Life Church leadership is made up of a team of local and trans-local ministries which is seen in the New Testament. They are responsible for the general oversight of the church including preaching, pastoral care, discipleship and overall vision and direction. We are also privileged at New Life to be an apostolic base for most of the Global Horizons team. Please see http://www.global-horizons.org for more information.

Ewen studied at Reading University, and worked full time with Campus Crusade for Christ (now called Agape in the UK) for two years amongst university students. Later he trained as a careers adviser and then worked for 10 years in a Careers Company in Essex, initially as a careers adviser but from 1994-98 as Staff Development Manager for the organisation.
Since 1998 he has been involved with Global Horizons and has outworked his dual passions for education/training with overseas mission. From 2001 to 2004 he was part of the leadership team of New Life Church Dunstable and also worked as a part-time adult careers adviser and careers adviser at Cranfield and Luton Universities. From 2004 he was a leader at two ministry training colleges connected to Global Horizons (Bible College of Wales and Trinity School of Ministry). Over the past 12 years he has made several trips to India, predominantly to teach and train church leaders and bible college students. He has also been involved in similar work in South Africa, Thailand and recently in Sri Lanka. His ministry has been enhanced by part-time study at Regents Theological College from 2004-2006 to obtain a MTh in Applied Theology and through undertaking part-time doctoral studies in the fields of theology and missiology, with the University of Wales from 2009 to 2014. He achieved his PhD in 2014.
