Restored Lives - Revived Church - Renewed Community

The Leadership Team

Ministry Team

Lawson Family

Stuart Lawson:  In October of 2016, Stuart took on the lead role at Oban Baptist Church, having worked both in ministry and education for over 16 years.   Stuart loves God's Word, loves the gathering of God's people, and enjoys music, football and strawberry laces!  He is passionate about Biblical transformation, and his heart is to champion Oban Baptist Church as a loving community that is actively engaged in the community.  He's joined on the adventure by Helen, who runs the church's Toddlers Group and helps lead the Junior Church, and their two beautiful daughters.


Ian McFarlane: Ian served as Lead Minister at Oban Baptist Church for four years, and his wisdom, energy and experience by God's Spirit have blessed and transformed the congregation.  In October of 2016, he handed over the reigns to Stuart but remains an integral part of the team, operating as a Spiritual Mentor to Stuart as well as continuing to offer his God-given gifts to the local church, community and beyond.  

The Deacons of Oban Baptist Church - Ministry Champions

OBC has a group of dedicated men and women who form an essential part of the Leadership Team.  They contribute to the oversight of the church, and each deacon operates, in a servant leader capacity, as a Ministry Champion, where they offer support to their specific ministry area whilst championing the common voice of the Word of God and the Baptist Union's Declaration of Principle.
