Selina Stone is a political theologian and the Tutor in Social and Political Theology for St Mellitus College. Her PhD from the University of Birmingham is on Pentecostal theology and ministry and social justice. She has a Masters Degree in Theology, Politics and Faith-based Organisations from King’s College London. Before joining the SMC team Selina worked at the Centre for Theology and Community for four years. Beginning as a participant on the Buxton Leadership Programme, she worked in Parliament and as a community organiser in Brixton. She has since developed the William Seymour Programme focussing on Pentecostal engagement in Community Organising and helped to launch the Congregational Development programme for churches in membership with Citizens UK. She has previous experience working in youth development at Ascension Trust forming a strategy for church responses to youth violence.
Selina's work focuses on liberation in Pentecostal theology and ministry. How can the core emphases of Pentecostalism (sanctification, the Word and power) can be understood in the light of liberation theology’s call to ‘set free the oppressed'? She works with a Pentecostal theology of liberation which takes seriously the need for political action as well as the work of Spirit in the church and in public life.
