The General Secretary serves the Union by offering spiritual leadership within the context of the Word and prayer. The General Secretary is the leader of Baptists Together, both internally in supporting, guiding and encouraging our Associations, Colleges and Churches in mission, and also externally in representing our Union in the UK and abroad, in both Christian and secular settings.
In exercising spiritual leadership our General Secretary seeks to model a prayerful dependence on God and enable our movement to be attentive to the Lord’s leading so that we can keep in step with the Holy Spirit.
Working closely with Council, Trustees, the Core Leadership Team and others across Baptists Together, the General Secretary encourages and enables us to discern, shape and develop our collaboration to fulfil our common purpose of growing healthy churches in relationship for God’s mission. The General Secretary also has overall responsibility for the effective implementation and delivery of the broad strategic direction discerned by Council together with the strategy and effective operation of the Specialist Teams.
The General Secretary has overall responsibility to communicate the vision, values, priorities and policies of the Union’s Council within the Baptist family and, with others, to represent them externally with Baptist and ecumenical bodies, government media and other agencies.
