Trevor Hutton, BA, MA, PhD (Cliff)

‘Rooting the Practice of Evangelical Church Planting within a Trinitarian Theological Framework: With Particular Reference to Creation, Context and Community’ (Cliff College, PhDMiss), 2019.

Trevor is from Belfast, Northern Ireland and is an ordained minister in the Church of the Nazarene. He served as Associate Pastor at Erskine Church of the Nazarene in Scotland From 1994-2007. He moved to Manchester to form Momentum UK in 2007, and continues to serve in this capacity.

Trevor’s PhD in Missiology explored how our understanding of the Trinity could shape and inform the planting of new churches. The aim was to provide a theological framework for the pioneering of new communities through engaging in critical conversations with a range of Trinitarian theologians (Moltmann, Boff, LaCugna, Volf, Tennent, and Newbigin) alongside the planting of a new church: Didsbury Community Church. This enabled theology and practice to mutually inform one another and provided a setting in which the principles and ideas created could be applied in a real life setting.

At NTC, Trevor teaches a range of modules that are rooted in missiology: Contexts of Mission, Creative Evangelism, Starting Healthy Churches, New Forms of Church, Growing Healthy Churches, Theology of Mission, and Global Missiology: Mapping the Landscape. His monthly blog, Musings Over A Mug provides missional conversations and reflections on a range of missional issues.
