About Us

Meet the Pastor

Ps. Craig Bosman has been with us since March 2019. His wife, Gen works as a Chaplain at Baptist Care Mirrambeena. Their children, Aimee & Timmy attend a local Primary School.

Craig, Gen, and Aimee migrated from South Africa to Australia in 2013 and spent their first five years in rural NSW where Timmy was born.

Craig is an Accredited Pastor of the Baptist Churches of WA and he did his Theological studies at The Baptist Theological College of Southern Africa.

Craig has a congenial nature and seeks to embrace the philosophy of, “In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, diversity; and in all things, charity.

The overall role of the Pastor is to serve the members through the Board by implementing the Church’s mission of encouraging people to know God, share Christ, and care for people.
