Pastor James Middleton was inducted as our full time Pastor on 2nd August 2015. James grew up in and around Perth and Albany, Western Australia. James's wife, Kelsey, was born and raised in the US before moving to Australia after marrying James.
James has been working in youth, young adult and children's ministries for 10 years before accepting the call to become the Senior Pastor at Craigie Baptist Church. James is committed to empowering others to 'Journey with people towards Jesus.' As a church we believe the bible is very relevant to the world today and our pastor aims to preach in such a way that the eternal message of the bible is spoken in a culturally sensitive and contemporary way. He has a passion to equip and empower every member of the church to best follow their call to follow Jesus. James studied a Bachelor of Theology at the Australian College of Ministries.
Besides ministry, James loves sport and plays volleyball in the local area. He is also an avid West Coast Eagles supporter. James loves a good coffee and chat so feel free to invite him out to catch up with you for one.
