Recognised Pastor

Following approval from the Accreditation and Ordination Committee, we are pleased that Baptist Churches SA has established the status of “Recognised Pastor” for people serving in specific pastoral roles in member churches. This is neither the equivalent of nor a replacement for Accreditation. It is specific to the ministry and church it is granted for and does not carry any standing outside Baptist Churches of South Australia. It is, however, designed to provide affirmation and accountability as well as a pathway for greater relationship and alignment with BCSA including relevant training, information, and support.
