My name is Stefanie Conradt and I am in my second year of my Doctor of Philosophy (Divinity – Practical Theology) under the supervision of Dr Eric Stoddart. I am fascinated by how congregations express their faith practically in different cultures and contexts. Having lived in different countries granted me the opportunity to experience these expressions for myself. Broadly speaking, my field of interest is the missional praxis of traditional (or inherited) congregations and what can be learned from them, while in dialogue with contemporary mission-approaches. I was born and grew up in Thailand as a “third-culture kid” and moved to Germany during my years in Primary School. I graduated from the Gymnasium and continued studying Religious Pedagogy / Congregational Studies and Social Work in Kassel, Germany. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts, I decided to move to London to study Pastoral Theology. I graduated with a Master of Arts in Pastoral Theology from Heythrop College in 2015. I then worked as a Church Expert Worker in a congregation in Germany, before moving to Scotland to begin my PhD journey.
Timothy Tse (pronounced “see”) is a Chinese Mennonite pastor from Vancouver, Canada. He is currently a PhD candidate in New Testament, working on John’s conception of sacred space in the book of Revelation. Although he is fully supportive of the hypostatic union, he finds the heresy of Apollinarism particularly amusing.
