The Senior Pastor is a key leader at Bromley Road Baptist Church, serving alongside the church’s Leadership Team to shape and advance the church’s mission, vision, and values, and motivating staff and congregants to serve in the church and community.
With a comprehensive understanding of the Bible, and solid grounding in theology, the Senior Pastor is the primary preacher and teacher at Bromley, communicating the Word of God in formats and language that are relevant to people’s lives, and which encourage them to take the next step in their faith journey.
The Senior Pastor models, teaches, and encourages people into a growing relationship with Jesus, one step at a time, and works with staff, the leadership team, and other ministry leaders to develop their gifts and skills so that they are equipped, empowered, and entrusted to lead ministries in service to our church and community.
With compassion and respect, the Senior Pastor leads Bromley in exploring new forms and styles of ministry to meet people where they are, and to not make it difficult for people to turn to God. While the drivers of change are likely to change over the years, the current context includes welcoming people back to in-person services; facilitating engaging hybrid services; and supporting Bromley’s digital church plant, Click Church.
