Our Pastors

Senior Pastor - David O'Brien

Our Senior Pastor, David O'Brien grew up in Western Australia and is a graduate of the Baptist College of W.A. (now called Vose Seminary). He has degrees in Science and Education from the University of W.A., and a Masters in Theology from Melbourne College of Divinity.

He is an ordained and accredited Minister of the Baptist Union of Victoria, and has served as Pastor in Collie and Craigie Baptist Churches in W.A. and was, for 14 years, the State Missions Director of the Baptist Union of Victoria. He has served here at Waverley since late 2005.

His passion is preaching and teaching the Word, and we benefit from inspirational and helpful preaching every week.

In 2019 the Church allowed David to be seconded to Global Interaction as Country Coordinator for Zambia and Zimbabwe, a position which involves regular visits to those countries in support of Church  leaders.

Church Council is currently seeking God's plan for future staffing of our Church.
