Jared Smith was born in Wimbledon, London and became a Christian when he was eight years old. He has been the pastor of Bethesda Baptist Church, Kensington Place, since 1999. The church was established in 1866 by baptized believers who subscribed to Restricted Communion and Particular Redemption. These founding doctrines remain core values of the church, as does the Authorised Version and pastoral oversight. Jared seeks to promote these values among churches today.

Kevin Price was born in England and brought to faith in Christ at the age of 16. Although he pastored a Pentecostal church in the 1970’s and 80’s, the Lord led him to a ‘theological turn-around’ which caused him to embrace the values of the Strict and Particular Baptists. He became the pastor of a church in Kendal for 21 years and has now taken the oversight of a Strict Baptist congregation in Bradford, West Yorkshire. In addition to a number of other important engagements, Kevin manages a busy schedule as a itinerate preacher that takes him to various parts of the UK and abroad.

Adam Nixon, born in Lincolnshire, England, received a strictly non-religious upbringing, but was later saved at All Souls Anglican Church, London.

He and his wife moved to Rome, Italy in 1997, where he continues an itinerate ministry. In the 21st Century, observing the new worldwide power seized and consolidated by atheistic culture through the Internet, Adam was awakened to a new urgency to proclaim the gospel fundamentals.

Alan O’Reilly was born in Sydney, Australia and is a Chemical Engineer by training. Through the witness of The Navigators, he became a Christian while a student at the University of New South Wales in 1967. For the last 25 years, he has extensively investigated the text of the Authorised Version of the Bible. Covenant Publishers have made much of this research available in a 352-page book entitled “O Biblios”. Alan is a contender for the faith, believing that “all Scripture is given by inspiration of God,” which has been preserved in the Authorized Version of the Holy Bible.
