The SBC Team
The team that serves SBC in ministry leadership roles are a mix of paid and volunteer workers. All of us are part-time at the church and some of us have other day jobs. We acknowledge that each of us has a limited number of gifts to be used for the benefit of the church, and for that reason we need to operate as a team and with teams. The following is some information about us:
Christine Redwood, Senior Pastor
Christine has recently joined our team as Lead Pastor, after five years as an Associate Pastor. She also works as an Adjunct Lecturer at Morling College and is completing her PhD. Christine’s special interests include preaching, social justice, writing, and young adults’ discipleship.
Vikki Howorth, Justice Pastor
Sam Hawkins, One80 Leader
Sam and a group of leaders lead the Friday night youth ministry for years 7-10 that meets during term time from 6:00-8:15pm. One80 is a community that provides a space to grow genuine relationships and encounter God. For more information about the One80 youth program contact Sam here.
Josh Lee, GoFish Leader

David Clark, Church Secretary
David has a lifelong passion for the just economic development of people. Now retired David has worked with AusAID, the World Bank and served on the Board of Baptist World Aid Australia, including as its Chair. He believes that the Church has a continuing major role in keeping the needs of the poor and disadvantaged firmly on the agenda of our politicians and that the Church must lead by example.
David is proud of the democratic tradition of the Baptist Church where members and not clergy have the final say and sees his role as Secretary as enhancing that tradition. To contact David, click here.
