About Our Church Family
Kamo Baptist Church is a friendly, family-oriented church. We value relationships over formality, involvement over performance and God's presence over everything! People from all walks of life will find themselves welcomed and accepted here.
We provide an all-ages Sunday Service, Children’s programmes & a variety of home groups. The popular Kamo Parent Hub is also run at the church every Friday during school term, from 9.15-12.30am (click here to find out more about this). If you have any questions feel free to contact Pastor Greg, through the phone number or email address at the bottom of this page.
GROWING GOD'S KINGDOM IN KAMO
To have the presence of God
To have the heart of Christ
To be intentional
Pastor Greg is a practical, down to earth person, with a love for God and family. He has a keen sense of humour, and a friendly, caring disposition. Diane and Greg celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary in 2019, they have five children, all of whom are now married and 13 grandchildren.
After leaving school, Greg went farming and eventually he and Diane bought their own dairy farm in Maungaturoto where they farmed for ten years. Feeling a call to mission, they sold up, expecting the Lord to lead them overseas, but instead were asked to act as assistant Pastors of the local Church and oversee the attached Christian School. They spent 16 years in Pastoral ministry at Maungaturoto Congregational Church, Greg becoming Associate Pastor, then Senior Pastor. While there Greg spent six years on the Board of the World Council for Mission, as the representative for the Congregational Union of New Zealand. He was instrumental in facilitating their ministry to Children program.
Greg was employed as the Pastor of Kamo Baptist Church in 2010. Diane is part of the Management team at Arataki Ministries, a community mental Health Provider.
When they can, they both enjoy fishing, and spending time with family and grandchildren. They both have a passion to see the next generation equipped and ready to overtake them in faith and exploits. They look forward to meeting you!
