Philip Powell

Philip Powell joined Tearfund in July 2021 as Theology and Network Manager (UK), having previously worked for eight years at the Cambridge-based Christian think tank Jubilee Centre with responsibilities for leadership development and training programmes. Philip has a passion for serving as an ecumenical bridge-builder across cultural differences and theological streams. He has a Masters degree in International Relations and is a self-taught (closet) theologian. His new job is forcing him to come out. He serves on the advisory council of Just Love UK and as trustee of Relationships Foundation and Global Action UK. He lives in Cambridge with his Dutch wife Renate and daughter Josephine. He supports the England football team and the Indian cricket team.
