South West Baptist Church




I love to provide safe places for people to process things in a way that helps them develop personally and professionally. I am married with 2 beautiful daughters. I moved from Wales to New Zealand in 2012 to help with the Christchurch rebuild. I have 15 years experience in construction and 10+ years in various degrees of youth work including Secular, Christian, Mentoring, Adventure based, Camps, School based and disability. I have previous work/volunteering experience within youth organisations such as Barnardos, Recreate (in the Disability sector), Youthline and Big Brothers Big Sister. I currently work for South West Baptist Church / SYC (Spreydon youth community) as a youth pastor and I'm also a 24/7 youth worker in Cashmere High School and Hillmorton High School. I have a lot of experience in forming, Leading and overseeing volunteer teams, organizing and running programmes/events/camps. I understand the importance of good supervision. I am a good listener and my top strengths are EMPATHY, POSITIVITY, DEVELOPER AND INCLUDER.
