Hierarchical or a free-for-all? Join Charles as he hosts a panel discussion with John Tucker (Principal – Carey Baptist College), Debbie Riach (Chair – Canterbury Westland Association), Josie Te Kahu (Palmerston North Central), and Colin Gruetzmacher (Pastor – Golden Sands Baptist) to question “what does it mean to be Baptists together”?
