Steve and Jo Bishop

YWAM Holmsted Manor Location Leaders

Steve and Jo have been leading the work at Holmsted Manor since September 2012. Before they were married, Jo was a PE teacher at a girl’s school and Steve was a bricklayer (which explains the industrial quantities of tea he consumes). Both were involved with youth work and it was their involvement in that which led them to train at All Nations Christian College in the mid 90’s. This time at All Nations started a chain of events that led them to join Youth With A Mission, starting with a DTS in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1999. After eight years in Buenos Aires they returned to the UK to join the team at Harpenden for a number of years, before taking up the opportunity to take on the leadership here at Holmsted Manor.

Steve & Jo speak Spanish fluently and have three grown-up daughters. Jo is the strategic thinker: she’s always got a list to hand, whilst also being very pastoral. Steve is less organised but loves to challenge the status-quo. He’s a networker and enjoys opportunities to speak to anyone who’ll listen. Both Steve & Jo have a history of developing teams and growing leaders and they genuinely love what they do!
