Leadership and Staff Team

Oakham Baptist Church is a gathering of Christians who have dedicated their lives to mutually supporting and caring for each other; this is known as a church membership. The church members gather throughout the year to pray and discern matters affecting the future ministry of the church, and they also discern leaders from amongst the members to carry out the day to day leadership tasks of the church (Deacons). Some of these Deacons also represent the church legally to the charities commision as Trustees.

Oakham Baptist Church also call a minister from the Baptist Union to help lead and guide the future of the church. The minister has the overall responsibility for spiritual direction, health, pastoral care, vision, teaching and encouragement of the fellowship. OBC is also blessed by being able to employ staff for various tasks.
Baptist churches also appoint secretaries, but this isn't what you might think! The Church Secretary is a vital role within church life. Not only are they responsible for calling and recording membership discernment meetings, they must work closely with the minister to ensure the direction and foundation of the church are healthy. The secretary liasses with the Baptist Union on a range of issues and is the primary contact for church related matters.

Rev. Tom Bowring - Minister    
Hi I’m Tom, my wife Jodi and I have 4 amazing children and love the life God has given us here at Oakham Baptist Church. It’s such a warm, friendly, loving family of believers, we feel so blessed to be here. I gave my life to Jesus when I was 26 during my first visit to a church, and before moving into full time ministry I spent 14 years in the RAF.
I’m an evangelist at heart and I love talking to people about Jesus and hearing about their lives.
