Our People

    Jock is the transitional pastor at RBC.  He and Cathy have a huge family and 11 (and counting) grandkids but none here in Rotorua.   He loves the Church, the Redwoods, the Lakes and the outdoors.   He has broad experience in training for mission, leadership, pastoral care and preaching but above all loves people.
