All We Can is delighted to announce the appointment of a new Director of Public Engagement. Steve Adams will be joining the All We Can team in July 2019 to head up its marketing, fundraising and communications work with supporters, churches and the media.
Steve has a wealth of experience in fundraising, communications, copy-writing, events management and within the international development sector. Steve began his career at GMTV, on the News and Features desk, and then went on to work for 20 years developing Christian media, communications, fundraising resources and events. For four years, Steve ran Youthwork magazine while also writing for Christianity magazine and, in tandem, serving as Premier Radio’s Morning News Editor – roles which together provided a unique insight into the UK and global Church. Steve then went on to work for Christian international relief and development charity Tearfund for over 13 years as its Head of Global Brand and Communication. In this role, he travelled widely across Africa and Asia, and also engaged with thousands of people across the UK through churches and events. From 2017, until accepting this new position with All We Can, Steve worked as a consultant serving around 30 charities and several corporate clients, and also published a book, ‘The Centre Brain’.
Steve is married to Ruth and they have four children. Last year, as a family, they spent two weeks in rural Malawi, in villages, at schools, playing in local football tournaments, and seeing church-based development up close. The family are members of Chiltern Church in Sutton, London, where they co-lead an evening congregation and run a home group.
All We Can’s Chief Executive Officer, Graeme Hodge, is excited about all Steve will bring to this role with All We Can and said:
“Steve will bring a lot of knowledge and experience to this role, but will also bring great enthusiasm! He is really passionate about our shared vision to see every person’s potential fulfilled, and is a strong believer in the Church’s role in responding to global poverty and injustice.”
