Mr Peter S Williams

Assistant Professor of Communication and Worldviews, NLA University College, Norway (based in Southampton, UK)

I studied philosophy at Cardiff University (BA), Sheffield University (MA) and at the University of East Anglia in Norwich (MPhil).

I spent three years as a student pastor at Holy Trinity Leicester, before moving to Southampton in 2001 to work alongside Christian educational charity Damaris Trust, until the charity closed in 2015. My work with Damaris included a lead role in developing both the content and the multi-media delivery of conferences for A-Level students. I also presented and trained presenters for these conferences.

Since 2009 I’ve been Assistant Professor in Communication and Worldviews at NLA University College at Gimlekollen in Kristiansand, Norway. My role is split between teaching and research for publication.

I live in Southampton, where I’m a member of Highfield CofE Church.

I’m a trustee of the Christian Evidence Society and a travelling speaker for the European Leadership Forum.
