The act or process of ministering is an important part of any church, we are blessed with many gifted leaders that are sometimes burdened with so much but still manage to keep RBC running smoothly with a smile.

Elder: Graham Davis

Graham is the Community Support Worker for Ranui Baptist Community Care. He took on this role after many years of success in business. The elders of Ranui Baptist Church and the Trustees of Ranui Baptist Community Care, recognised Graham’s gifting and his relationship with West Auckland Community Leaders and asked him to undertake Chaplaincy Training and to operate as a Community Chaplain in Ranui. Graham has now become a key person in establishing and operating our social services and community services through Ranui Baptist Community Care. His years in business have equipped him with the necessary skills to network with stakeholders at all levels in the West Auckland Social Services community. Further to this, Graham’s chaplaincy training has formalised his gifting in relating to the needy people who come for help every day.

Elder: Carol Dawson

I am married to Ian, we have 2 married children and 5 grandchildren who all have a big input into my adventure in life. I see my spiritual gifting as being of the prophetic & discernment with my strengths being able to relate to people of all age groups and to have a listening ear to understand where they are at in life and able to help with ideas plus give encouragement. I find our church a place where people do matter and can feel welcomed and loved.
