Ministry Support and Development (MSD) is the section of the Baptist Ministry Centre that is charged with the task of supporting local churches and their pastors throughout NSW and the ACT. MSD is committed to establishing and facilitating the development of healthy, sustainable, missional ministries within and through the Baptist Churches of NSW and ACT.
The MSD Ministry Team undertakes the role of resourcing, serving, supporting and partnering the churches and pastors of the Denomination in this endeavour. As a team we believe that relationships are the basis for effective ministry. Consequently we are committed to being workers “in the field” who seek to operate out of the values of godliness, integrity, a posture of partnership, acceptance of diversity, empowering leadership and a commitment to church health and mission.
The following areas of ministry focus comprise the MSD team:
- Pastoral development – Viv Grice
- Church health – Ian Altman
- Youth and young adults (Baptist Youth Ministry) – Steve Dixon and Dan Dalton
- Children & Family Ministries – Louise Bartlett, Cheryl Clendinning, Yvette Wynne, Kaye Ryan
- Church planting – Steve Bartlett
- Belinda Lakelin – Evangelism Consultant
- Cross-cultural – Frank Farag
There are five full time and four part-time members of the MSD team, all with ministry experience in local churches.
