Here at Kaiapoi Baptist we strongly believe that everyone is called into a life of discipleship and ministry. We could easily put a photo of everyone in the church on our team page – the church as the priesthood of believers! It’s not just a theological concept at Kaiapoi, it is a living reality, that we try and embody as a church. Teamwork is a vital reality and is reflected in our pastoral leadership team.
Annette and Simon Williams were called in January 2017 as Co-Pastors to Kaiapoi Baptist Church, working together as a team. Annette and Simon have been involved in ministry together for over 20 years and desire to see people discover their true worth and purpose in Jesus Christ.
We have a team of Elders who are a part of the Leadership Team here at KBC. Each brings their own skills, abilities, experiences and wisdom to the role. We firmly believe that we make our best decisions when we make them as a community that has gathered to discuss and discern the mind of Christ.
So although we have people in roles and functions of leadership within the church we are committed to congregational governance as a reflection of our distinctiveness as Baptists.
