Scott James

Scott grew up in the South Eastern suburbs of Dingley and Mordialloc. After completing high school, he ventured west and began university in Sunbury and through a part time job, met his now wife Susan.  They and their 4 wonderful  kids moved to Bacchus Marsh in late 2013.

After some challenges with faith during his late teens and early 20’s Susan and Scott pursued a connection back to the Church. Scott was challenged by God to begin serving in his local Church, eventually leading him into Pastoral ministry in the area of Kids & Families at Sydenham Baptist Church.

Both Susan and Scott have felt a calling to serve their local community and through the amazing timing and provisions of God, have been passionately led into Pastoral Ministry here at BMBC in the areas of Family Connection and Community Engagement. Now beginning the journey as Senior Pastor.

Scott is excited about this journey and is eager to see God’s plan’s unveiled in this town as we show His love and grace to all people in it.

He attended Moonee Ponds Baptist Church with his parents and came to faith at the age of 8 but later re-ignited his faith after some rebellious teenage years. He has been involved with the music ministry at both Moonee Ponds and this church. He has also been on the leadership for the most part of the last 28 years. He is currently serving as the Church Secretary.

Tim works in a Foundry in Sunshine as a Metallurgist and is a cycling enthusiast – trying to do as many rides as possible. He follows many sports, but in particular, Cycling, AFL, NRL and the Cricket.
Tim attempts to put Jesus at the centre of his world and seeks God’s wisdom, leading and guidance in his daily life.

Maureen Latham

I was born in Northern Ireland and grew up in Chester in the UK. Came to live here in 2018 after visiting my son here for many years and attending BMBC every time I came on holiday so naturally it followed that I would become a member when we moved here. My hope and prayers are that we would continue to grow in the community with lots of young families as we are a very alive and lively gathering.
