Please click the links below to access the most up-to-date lists of our accredited ministers and nationally recognised pastors, pioneers and preachers. To find out more about each category, please see our Ministry pages
. We have also included below the In Memoriam lists shared annually at our Assembly.
Accredited ministers may be church pastors; chaplains; evangelists; pioneers; children’s, families’ and youth workers; or retired. All have been through ministerial formation including theological education and had their calling to ministry tested by the wider Baptist church. The list is updated three times a year.
Nationally recognised pastors undergo a lower level of training than accredited ministers. Yet they have been equipped to an extent that enables the Union to nationally recognise their calling and gifting by God for pastoral ministry among our churches.
This is an historic list and may contain the names of pastors who have died since it was created. If you are aware of any names which should no longer be included on this list, please contact our Ministries Team so that the list can be updated
Nationally Recognised Pioneers
This is a new category, yet to be populated, for men and women who are nationally recognised as called and gifted by God for church planting or pioneer ministry among the churches of our Union.
Nationally recognised preachers have undergone a basic level of training so that the Union recognises their calling and gifting by God for the ministry of preaching among the churches of our Union.
This is an historic list and may contain the names of preachers who have died since it was created. If you are aware of any names which should no longer be included on this list, please contact our Ministries Team so that the list can be updated
For a season, the Union also accredited those whose primary vocational calling was to be a Church Worker within a Baptist context. This register is now closed to new applicants and only one person remains on the list.
