All Nations Leadership Team

Senior Leaders

Steve & Esther Uppal

Alongside his wife Esther, Steve has been the senior leader of the multi-cultural and multi-campus All Nations Church since 2001. Steve is also recognised as the Apostolic leader of the growing All Nations Movement which gathers churches and leaders together with the vision of turning nations back to God through prayer, church planting, repurposing existing churches and equipping leaders.

As an anointed and engaging speaker, Steve’s passion is for the church to fulfil her glorious destiny and for every believer to become strong in their inner being, engage with God’s purpose and find their place in His plans.

Steve is the author of 4 books; Rousing the Warriors – A prophetic call to boldly advance the kingdom, One Life – A guide to living a life of purpose, Burning Ones – Awakening your heart to burn and Highly Flammable – A 40-day devotional to awaken your passion for God.

Esther leads the pastoral department, whilst leading prophetically to ensure that members of the church are cared for and nurtured.

She is an influential speaker as well as much loved pastor who imparts strength and loves nothing more than to encourage people of all ages to never give up!

Steve and Esther have four children: Bethany, Sophia, Joel and Judah.
