EMBA Presidential Visit 2022


Monday 5th September 10am-12noon

East Leake Baptist Church, Costock Road, East Leake, Leics LE12 6LY

An event for ministers and key leaders

Come and join us as we discuss what being a leader who builds a bigger table looks like and how we can all engage in listening, knowing and respecting each other in our life of ministry and mission.

The session will include some input and discussion; it is a great opportunity to reflect with Hayley on the presidential theme and how it is developing across our movement.

Rev. Hayley Young

Baptist Union President

Hayley Young is the Transitional Strategic Leader (Regional Minister) of the Northern Baptist Association.

I have been in local pastoral ministry for 14 years serving in churches in SCBA, CBA, SWaBA and now NBA.  I was called into ministry in my early 20s and was ordained when I was 24 after studying at Spurgeons College. I believe that the local church should be about people who are hungry to live out the way of Jesus.  I believe in the power of God’s word to change lives.   

We are living in a time where things are changing.  Covid-19 made us stop and look at the world around us. 

Many of us where exposed to the ugly truths of divided communities: divide by their race, gender, religion, economic circumstances. These divisions are not just words but a dark reality for many people who are excluded, murdered, discriminated against and more.   But I believe there is hope for our communities. 

Hayley's theme for her presidential year is 'Building a Bigger Table'
"As a Baptist Movement we have the opportunity to bring Jesus to our communities by expanding a table: providing the kind of hospitality that Jesus offers.  We have a challenge ahead of us about how we can create a bigger table: to welcome more people. To spend time listening, learning, hearing, knowing and respecting everyone.
