Winfield Bevins is an author, artist, and speaker whose passion is to help others connect to the roots of the Christian faith for discipleship and mission. He is the Director of Church Planting at Asbury Theological Seminary. Prior to coming to Asbury he was a pastor, college professor, and church planter. He has taught on four different continents, speaking at conferences, churches, and seminaries on a variety of topics. He has a Doctorate of Ministry from Southeastern Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina. Having grown up in a low-church background, Winfield eventually found his spiritual home in the Anglican tradition, but freely draws wisdom from all church traditions.
Having authored several books, his writings explore the convergence of liturgy, prayer, and mission. His latest book, Ever Ancient, Ever New, with Zondervan examines young adults who have embraced Christian liturgy and how it has impacted their lives.
As an artist, Winfield is dedicated to connecting the church and the arts community. He is a visual artist who enjoys painting iconography, landscapes, and portraits. Over the past decade, he has helped start numerous arts initiatives, including a non-profit art gallery and studio and an arts program for at risk youth in North Carolina.
