Appointment of LBA Regional Minister (Team Leader)

The interviewing panels have brought a recommendation for the appointment of a Regional Minister (Team Leader) which has been agreed by the Board of Directors on 8th March 2016. The Board will now bring the nomination of Rev. Phil Barnard to an Ordinary General Meeting to be held on Thursday 28th April at 6.30 p.m. at Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church.

 

Phil has been Pastor of Mitcham Lane Baptist Church, Streatham, for almost ten years – and has also served as an LBA District Minister in the South West.  Prior to entering pastoral ministry he worked in retail management and, after training at London Bible College, spent six years as a minister at Hertford Baptist Church in the Central Association.

 

Having lived in and around the capital most of his life, he loves the city and its vibrant diversity.  He has a passion for mission and discipleship – and for the UK church to make a transformational impact in its post-Christian, multi-faith setting.   His distinctive skills in management, strategy, vision building and partnership work serve him well in this calling.

 

He is married to Jenny and they have three children, Eleanor (12), Edward (8) and Ernest (3), who keep them on their toes.  In his spare time, he enjoys music, film, books and social media – and is a life-long supporter of Tottenham Hotspur FC.  He’s also an experienced multi-instrumentalist and has played in many bands inside and outside of church life.

 

Phil says ‘It is both exciting and humbling to be nominated as Team Leader.  I have long felt an emerging call to regional ministry and for the LBA to recognise that call is something for which I am deeply thankful to God.   I am very much looking forward to serving and encouraging the churches and ministers across our great city.  I would value your prayers as I conclude my ministry at Mitcham Lane and prepare for this very different role – with all of its abundant opportunities and challenges – in the coming weeks and months ahead.
