Hi and welcome to my corner of the website,
My name is Malcolm Ward and I'm the pastor at Naringal Baptist Church. I haven't been a pastor all my life, I was a dairy farmer for a long time and then something miraculous happened.
My family and I have grown up in the area, we lived around the Timboon and Port Campbell area and then moved to manage a well known property a lot closer to Warrnambool. As a family we have always been involved in 'church' things of one sort or another.
