Our Staff

STEPHEN FIELD, SENIOR PASTOR

Stephen joined Canterbury Baptist as Senior Pastor in December 2019. He provides pastoral leadership to the Church, Ministries and Staff and speaks most Sundays. A core belief he holds is that Jesus is alive and is present and active in the world today. His passion is to help people discover the ways Jesus is active in their lives and help them to participate in what the Spirit of God is already doing among us. He enjoys reading, movies, sports, and board games. Stephen is married to Ruth and together they have eight children.
