Rosedale is the result of a church plant around 50 years ago in the North Invercargill suburb of Hargest, with it's beginnings from a children's bible study. Our heritage is of Open Brethren roots with our church now connected with the CCCNZ (Christian Community Churches New Zealand) church network.
My wife Jo and I, along with our now teenagers Ezra and Emma have loved Southland since we moved here in 2001/2002.
I became a Christian at 13 at a Youthgroup, and my passion has always been- Saved to Serve Him.
I’ve lived in Southland all my life and have fellowshipped and served at Rosedale Bible Chapel for over 40 years. I’m married to Hannah with 4 kids and work for Scripture Union (SUNZ) as the Children and Families Team Leader. I am passionate about helping churches form lifelong faith and helping people of all ages engage with God through the Bible and prayer.
I have been a Christian for over 40 years and a member of Rosedale Bible Chapel for this time. My wife Cindy and I have spent a year at G.L.O Bible school and 3 years on the Mission field in Ireland.
I'm married to Carol and a father of 5 children and have lived in many different parts of NZ, with the last 10 years in Southland.
I'm also the Under 20s Pastor at RBC and it's a real privilege to be able to invest in the life of our church in this way.
I am married to Raewyn and we have four children. I am heavily involved in the Southland farming community. I love meeting people and I have a passion for God's family, the Church.
