With a congregation of over 200 people, leadership is important to us. Australind Baptist Church has a few teams that help our church to run effectively.

The Board includes Matt Spinelli, Pastor Richard Foster, Laurette LeCras, Ross LeCras, Brad Potgieter, and Natasha Page and is responsible for ensuring we meet our financial and legal obligations. Board Members receive no income. The organisation provides financial statements to Members of Australind Baptist Church at the Annual General Meeting. 

The Board are supported by Staff Richard Foster (Pastor), Sharon Guy (Children’s Ministry), Nyssa Millington (Administration), and Clint Plumley (Youth Ministry) who undertake some of the day to day duties involved in undertaking our mission – to make disciples.

Then we have our Leadership Team who help dream dreams, devise strategies and develop plans to fulfill our God given mission here in the town of Australind. These include: Matt Spinelli, Ps Richard Foster, Clint Plumley, Sharon Guy, Brett Shortland, Nyssa Millington, Geoff Harrison, Jason Bartlett, Brad Potgeiter, Ross Le Cras, Laurette Le Cras, and Natasha Page.
