Our goal is not to do ministry but to provide tools, advice and training for pastors and local church leaders to accomplish their roles.

Our senior staff have extensive experience and expertise that is readily available via phone, email and a variety of direct involvements with churches and regions. We can assist in the following areas:

  • Employment Agreements and Terms of Call

  • Finance – accounting and tax matters

  • Legal, insurance, property and human resource matters

  • Statutory compliance – OSH, Privacy Act, Building Act etc.

  • Bulk buying arrangements – e.g. fuel cards for church staff, cell phone groups, and membership of various buying groups giving discounts from a wide range of merchants.

  • Statistical and demographic research

  • Keeping of annual statistics from all churches belonging to the Baptist Churches of New Zealand

  • Communication between all Baptist entities such as Carey Baptist College, NZBMS, Christian Savings, Regional Associations and Regional Leaders

  • Baptist magazine website


As part of our resources to the churches we have written a complete guide to assist you in making application for funding. This does not apply to funding applications made to Tindall or ASB Community Trust.
