Craig Barrow Principal of Pathways College

CRAIG BARROW

PRINCIPAL
BA (Theol), M.Div (Hons), Dip.Bib.S

When I was about 18 I went through a major time of trying to figure out who God was, and therefore who I was in relation to Him. I had been living in Hamilton for two years attending Waikato Polytech. During this time I got pretty lost. In a wild way, God drew me to the NZ Assembly Bible School, where He began to open my eyes to his radical love for me. After working for the NZ Dairy Group (Fontera) as a computer nerd for three years, I then went to Moody Bible institute and completed a B.A in Theology, and then an MDiv at Denver Seminary. I returned to NZ and pastored a church in Cambridge for eight years, before starting here at Pathways College mid-2008.

I have a passion for presenting the Bible in a relevant and applicable way. Therefore, I love the combination of study and ministry that Pathways offers students and churches.

Josephine Barrow Online Courses Coordinator Pathways College

JOSEPHINE BARROW

ONLINE COURSES COORDINATOR
M.A. (Theol/Couns), B.A. (Theol) (Hons)

In this crazy busy era, it is so wonderful to be able to help people study God and His Word, the Bible, however it works best for them. Jose enjoys being able to be a part of Pathways, developing and tutoring the online courses. She finds Pathways Online is a great way to make this study available to people from all kinds of ages, stages in life, with such varying commitments in family, work, ministry, study and so on.

Jose has come from a background of evangelical Christians going back 4-5 generations, which she has found a huge privilege. She remembers very clearly, making her own decision to follow Jesus as a 5-year-old. This is a great encouragement for those studying or working in children’s ministry! Two years into marriage, she and her husband, Craig Barrow decided to go and study Theology fulltime in the US. Seven years later they returned to NZ for fulltime ministry. Jose joined Pathways in 2014 as the online program was in its planning stages and have absolutely been blessed to be a part of it ever since.

Jose loves working online with so many different people from all over NZ and overseas with many inspiring stories from their own lives and their encouragement to Pathways for the impact that their study with Pathways has had on them is continually a blessing!

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

STEPHEN HARTFIELD

ACADEMIC DEAN
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

HELEN TAIT

REGISTRAR AND PASTORAL CARE COORDINATOR
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.
