Here at Streatham Baptist Church (SBC) we are led by our senior minister, Phil Robinson. He is supported by our Associate Minister - Discipleship, Tex McLeod, Missional Minister, Gary Napier, and our Minister for International Mission, Elnur Jabiyev. Working with our children and young people are Esther Bee (children) and Neil Charlton (youth).
The Leadership Team is made up of members of the church who meet to pray and seek God's vision for the church. It is currently consists of Phil, Elnur, Gary and Tex, along with Alice Bimpong, Jenny Dowlen (Treasurer), Howard Giles, Ben King, and Penny Pilgrim.
Phil is the Senior Minister. Having previously served in Willesden Green and East Sussex, he joined the church in November 2007. Phil has brought with him a renewed emphasis on the teaching ministry of the church and on retaining and increasing an outward focus, whilst building on the charismatic ethos of the church. SBC has seen considerable numerical growth since his arrival and is in good heart for the challenges which lie ahead.
Phil enjoys travelling and visiting old church buildings.
Gary is our Missional Minister as of September 2013.
He has studied at Spurgeon's College in South London and is married to Sarah. He loves to share the gospel with everyone, whether that be at the front of the church on a Sunday morning or on a football pitch.
Gary also heads up the Friendly Club on Fridays; a mission to the elderly of the neighbourhood where they meet to share activities together and go on trips in and around London
Neil is our youth worker. Hence the trendy blue hoody. He was born in N.W. London (that's why he supports Arsenal) and came to Christ in 1989. He studied and qualified in computer graphic design but felt strongly called to work with youth in both voluntary and paid capacities (at Willesden Green Baptist Church from 2003).
Robert King is our Church Manager. He is an experienced manager, who has worked previously in management within the Metropolitan Police Service.
He, along with his wife Sue have attended Streatham Baptist Church for many years.
