Our Team

The work of the ministry is not done by just the pastor or any one person. We are very blessed at Rolleston Baptist Church to have a wonderful family of willing and gifted people who serve each other joyfully. Without the entirety of our “team” being willing to sacrifice for the Lord’s work this church would not exist.
