I’m Joshua Steele, and I am committed to advancing God’s Kingdom academically, pastorally, and globally – as missionary, pastor, and professor. 


Currently, I am completing my M.Div. at Beeson Divinity School in Birmingham, Alabama. After graduating with this degree in December 2016, I plan to complete a Ph.D. in Historical/Systematic Theology. Right now, my research interests include Karl Barth, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and the theological critique of religion.

If you are interested in my research and writing, check out my academia.edu profile.


I also serve as the Youth Minister at St. Peter’s Anglican Church in Mountain Brook, Alabama. I am in the first stages of the ordination process (priest) within the Anglican Church of North America, and I would like to pursue Spanish-speaking ministry opportunities, along the lines of the Caminemos Juntos movement.

IMG_4376Of course, there’s much more to me than what I’ve written, taught, and preached! I have been married to the love of my life, Rachel, since August 2012. She is a Registered Nurse at Children’s of Alabama Hospital, and is completing a Master of Science in Nursing at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, in order to become a Family Nurse Practitioner.

I know I’m biased, but we make a great team together in order to meet physical, emotional, and spiritual needs to the glory of God.

Grace and Peace,

Joshua Steele
