About Joshua P. Steele

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

That is, I want to serve the world by serving the Church as a cross-cultural pastor theologian.


I am ordained as a Transitional Deacon (on the way to the priesthood) in the Anglican Church of North America, the Anglican Diocese of the South [ADOTS].

From October 2016 until May 2017, I served as a Deacon at St. Peter’s Anglican Church in Mountain Brook, Alabama. Before that, from January 2014 until December 2016, I served as the Youth Minister at St. Peter’s.

My wife and I are now attending Church of the Savior in Wheaton, IL. Right now, the plan is for me to remain a deacon until there’s a clear reason for me to be ordained a priest.

If you are interested in my preaching and teaching in a church context, check out my Sermons page.


I recently (December 2016) completed my M.Div. at Beeson Divinity School in Birmingham, Alabama. In Fall 2017, I will begin the Ph.D. in Biblical and Theological Studies at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. My research interests include Karl Barth, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, their theological critique(s) of religion, and the theological interpretation of Scripture.

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


Of 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 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.

If you’d like to get to know me more, check out my blog, follow me on Twitter, glance at my CV, or contact me.

Grace and Peace,

Joshua P. Steele
