New regional minister for NBA

The Revd Paul Revill has been appointed regional minister: mission enabler for the Northern Baptist Association (NBA).

Paul has served at Stocksfield Baptist Church in Northumberland since 2001, as a pastor committed to leading the church in evangelism.

And NBA regional minister (pastoral and strategy) the Revd John Claydon said that mission was seen to be key component of the appointment, with a special emphasis on evangelism.

‘I’m absolutely delighted. Paul has been in our Association for 13 years, and has proved himself to be a missional leader, with a history of being engaged in mission with both younger and older people.

‘He’s energetic, creative, a deep thinker – he brings a lot to the role, and I’m looking forward to working with him.’
Paul said he takes on this role with ‘a great sense of privilege, that people have invested their trust in me, and excitement’.

He continued, ‘Although the background is secularisation in our nation and many churches in decline, I see God at work in small ways and large ways across our region.

‘I’m looking forward to working with our churches. Firstly to see what God is doing and affirming that; and then see how we hear the voice of God and sense the mission he is already doing and how He is calling us on.

‘The challenge is to show the Christian way of life is different from the ways of the world.

‘We will affirm the mission that is attracting people to our churches, but will also  encourage churches to look out beyond their own walls.’
