Rowan is passionate about helping people grow their skills & gifting, character, service, and relationships – both with God and those around them. In reflection upon his own days in youth group Rowan recalls and highly values the encouragement, spiritual guidance and opportunity afforded him by those who were leaders & mentors to him, and desires to similarly create opportunities for those who he now serves in the Youth & Young Adults ministries here at Belair Baptist Church. Rowan is a skilled tradesperson, having previously worked as a Fitter & Hydraulic Technician, who has a keen interest in all things mechanical and car related. He also loves to play guitar. Rowan and his wife Hayley, both having grown up in Newcastle yet meeting and serving in mission in the Philippines, are now ‘settling down’ in 2016 with the arrival of their first child.
