Our committed Servants

Meet the very ordinary, yet very special people that serve us here at KBC.

For a description of how elders and deacons actually differ, click here.

Elders:

Malcolm Cunningham: Full-time pastor and regular preacher since February 2009. “My root desire is that the Lord has His way in this place, and He will do it if we remain unmoved from His Word and committed in Love to one another. We have the privilege and duty of stewarding Christ’s Hope in our community.”
Ron Cairs: “I have a passion for theology and the Doctrines of grace believing that every Christian needs to know what he believes and why. I enjoy sharing the Word through preaching and Bible study. I also believe that the flock needs to be nurtured and visited especially the older, less mobile ones.”
Claude Cunningham: “I have led Home Groups and engaged in Counselling for many years, and Maureen and I are convicted of the need to meet with people on home ground – ours or theirs. Possibly my greatest influencers are CS Lewis, Michael Cassidy, Philip Yancey, Watchman Nee, John Bunyan and AW Tozer”

TREASURER:

The treasurer currently forms part of our executive leadership.


Alan Cameron: “I love to grow in my understanding of the scriptures through reading and study. My passion is the Word of God, and to have it applied at Knysna Baptist with true humility and unity.”


Deacons
:

Mel Colyn: “As a member of Knysna Baptist Church, I know that I am one of the family of members and as such, a child of Christ and will always try to help and direct those in need of assistance, physically or spiritually wherever I can.”
Diane McLean: “I am passionate about our Worship Team, Outside Caring Forum and the Communications Forum. I hope to help people into the worship of Christ after a hard week; to share God’s love and bring Him glory; to make our Church known ‘out there’, and ensure our members are updated with the latest happenings.”
Mark Matejek: “My role is to serve.  I will serve my Lord by serving His people in whatever manner He deems right.  I have had the privilege of leading Bible Study, preaching and assisting the leadership in its functions.  I have grown tremendously in these challenges and it is my hope to continue in these roles”
Margi Dane: “My enjoyment of being involved in catering and my love for people He places in my path makes me want to love and to minister to folk in any way that He leads me. Indeed, I am willing to wash the feet of  “the whosoever” for His Kingdom!”
