Introducing the 3 staff who who make KST happen!

Mark studied Automotive Engineering and after completing PGCE teacher training, worked at Rolls Royce Aero Engines. He took a career break to study Theology at King’s Bible College and moved on to plant a church in Northampton, working bi-vocationally as an IT consultant and pastor.
