Josephine Barrow Online Courses Coordinator Pathways College


M.A. (Theol/Couns), B.A. (Theol) (Hons)

She may be head honcho of our online courses—but Josephine's own theological education began long before online was even "a thing". Back when "the web" meant a spider's home, Jose studied theology at both Moody Bible Institute and Denver Seminary for seven years. Before all that, she was raised in New Zealand in a committed Christian household. She herself came to faith as a kid, continuing a legacy of evangelical faith that goes back 4–5 generations.

Jose joined Pathways Online in 2014 during its infancy. She counts it a real privilege to have been involved with the online programme from its planning stages right through to today, where it's a thriving and diverse community of learners. What does she love so much about it? She loves making theological formation accessible to everyone—men and women from all ages and stages of life—in whatever way works best for them

Rosie Devery

School of Worship Leading Coordinator
BMus (Jazz Perf), DipCM

Rosie Devery grew up in Auckland as well as spending much of her childhood in India. Growing up in a missionary family with an undeniable sense of the presence of God led to the personal joy of knowing there is nothing better than a life lived with Jesus!

Rosie oversees the School of Worship Leading (SOWL) which Pathways launched in 2012. She started worship leading while studying a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance at Auckland University. After a distinct prompting from God during a Sunday morning service she got involved in the leadership of the worship team at her home church, and ended up being a SOWL student herself in 2014. God eventually led Rosie into ministry as a Worship Pastor at Lifezone Church until 2017, and as Tauranga Hub Leader for Worship Central NZ.

SOWL takes worship leaders on an incredible journey of growth as they wrestle with what worship is, what worship leading is, and what that means for the Church today. Rosie is passionate about seeing worship leaders around Aotearoa empowered and inspired to lead God's people in true, Spirit-filled worship.

Stephen Hartfield Academic Dean Pathways College


BComp.Syst., DipCM

Perhaps the biggest motivator in my work at Pathways is seeing people reach their full potential, especially those that have missed opportunities or have had their life options limited in some way. What makes this so rewarding for me is being part of a team that actively encourages people, irrespective of their background, to mature into great Christian workers. In turn these are the people that will one day go on to help others just like them.

I have had the privilege of working for a number of education providers in recent years. My main focus has been teaching and academic administration, and it's the things I've learnt from these experiences that I now apply at Pathways. Inevitably, working at different learning centres has led me to compare how well Pathways stacks up against equally good colleges. A stand-out for me is the awesome one-on-one pastoral care and support each student receives. It's possibly the best I've seen.

Jessica Locke

Marketing Coordinator
BBUS (Marketing/Public Relations), DipCM, IMNZ

Jess is our marketing ace. She joined our team after having completed a Bachelor of Business (Massey University) and a Diploma in Christian Ministry (Faith Bible College). Her formal education in marketing and in ministry make her an ideal fit for Pathways. Prior to Pathways, Jess worked extensively in sales (clothing, lighting, media).

Before moving permanently to Aotearoa New Zealand as a teenager, Jess grew up in Indonesia and so speaks fluent Bahasa Indonesia, as well as English. Thanks to her God-fearing upbringing, she has always been keenly aware of the reality of God, and has an infectious desire to communicate her faith in Christ in a fresh, relatable way. Her passion for making a positive impact in the world gets put to good use here at Pathways. Besides her involvement with the Christian community, Jess is active in the local arts scene in Tauranga.

Helen Hartfield Registrar and Pastoral Care Coordinator Pathways College


Cert. Min. Dev., Dip CM

My passion is pastoral care. Drawing on previous Christian studies, a number of years as a mum to 4 now-adult children, and time in ministry, I get excited at being able to nurture and care for the students at Pathways. It's so rewarding seeing them develop spiritually as they seek out what exactly it is that God wants for their lives.

This is what Pathways is all about. Students getting to know God more, building Christian character, preparing for life ministry. I'm so pleased to have been provided the opportunity to contribute to that.
