The Wellington Regional Executive comprises a team of eight senior pastors and lay-leaders who meet monthly to provide oversight for the thirty two Baptist churches/congregations within the Wellington region.  This region includes Levin, Kapiti Coast, Wairarapa, Wellington City, and the greater Wellington area.

The cosmopolitan nature of Wellington is reflected in the wide variety of worship styles amongst the churches.  In particular, Pacific Island, Māori, and Chinese cultures are well represented. 

This is achieved through and incorporates the following:

  • Strategic overview of the region

  • Church Planting

  • Church encouragement and invigoration

  • Church rescue

  • Mission partnerships between churches

  • Church closure and rebirth

  • Alignment with National vision and initiatives.

  • Assist with the implementation of National initiatives and the use of national resources at a regional/local church level
