ABOUT LEADERS

 
Pastor Steve Ovens
steveSteve was born in Trowbridge, Wiltshire and moved to Cornwall in 2000 after completing his PGCE at Exeter. He spent 12 years teaching and playing semi-professional football (Tiverton Town, St Blazey and Bodmin Town) whilst serving in ministry at Soul’s Harbour, Camelford, as the Assistant Pastor and Youth Leader. Over the years, Steve has also been involved in several short-term missions in the UK (with SJi & TFM) and overseas (with teams from OM, CIS/ CIF, PEF and Soul’s Harbour).

In 2012, Steve was clearly led by God to hang up his football boots and leave teaching to become pastor at New Life Church in Bodmin. He has a passion to see men and women of every generation be transformed by the good news of Jesus Christ and to be all that God has created them to be.
 
In his spare time, Steve loves to ride on the local downhill mountain bike trails, eat a good curry and spend time with his family. He is also really competitive- according to him there’s no such thing as a ‘fun run!’

 

Jen Ovens
jenJen Ovens was born in Cornwall and is from Lanivet (just outside Bodmin). For the past 5 years she has been working with vulnerable people in Cornwall after studying at Plymouth. She now works part-time after having a baby.
 

Jen serves in the youth ministry team and oversees the work for the children in the church. She has a God given desire to see Bodmin impacted by the love and grace of God.

Jen enjoys baking, eating what she makes and drinking coffee! She married Steve in August 2010 and they have two children called Luke and Lydia.
