Leadership Team

Our leadership team consists of the Elders and the Pastoral Team and are the key governance and vision team for Ham south . We meet together monthly for prayer, encouragement and updates on the last month. Here we also have a wider financial update.

Teaching & Preaching Pastor

Lucy began as our preaching and teaching pastor in 2019. She grew up at Ham South, and in 2015 began her Pastoral Training at Carey Baptist College. After 2 years interning at Mt Albert Baptist, she returned to Ham South for her final year. Lucy preaches to equip the congregation, always looking to apply the truth of scripture into the life of the community today. Lucy is married to Josh, and they have 2 cats, Tracey and Gail. 

Development Pastor

Shannan began at Ham South in 2012 as the Youth Pastor, and his role has transitioned over the years to his current role of Development Pastor. He grew up in South Auckland, and then the Hibiscus Coast. During his pastoral training, he attended Northgate Baptist in Silverdale. Shannan is responsible for Team Development, as well as playing key roles in the Kids and Youth ministries. Shannan is married to Holly, and has a daughter, Lexie.


Our elders are the voted members of the church that work with our pastoral team to communicate our vision and keep working towards it with the congregation. Elders are voted in for 2 year terms, and can serve 3 consecutive terms before requiring a years sabbatical.
