Rob and Robyn Douglas make up the pastoral team at Maida Vale Baptist Church. Rob, as the senior pastor, was ordained into the Baptist ministry in Western Australia more than 30 years ago and served in pastoral ministry in regional Western Australia for nearly 20 years before taking up a position with Baptistcare, leading the community services area, with a focus on disability, mental health and counselling. After seven years with Baptistcare, Rob took on the role of team leader/ senior pastor at Maida Vale Baptist Church where his wife, Robyn, was already working as Children and Families Worker. Robyn has a key role in leading a variety of programmes that support children and families in the church and the community.
Rob is the author of two books, "He Speaks Our Language", a story about his father who was a missionary/linguist working with indigenous communities in Australia for more than 50 years. Rob's latest book, "Come Eat With Me" explores God's invitation for us to dine with him.
