Dr. Malcolm Beckett Moving to Pastoral Ministry

Dr. Malcolm Beckett

After nearly twenty-four years of dedicated service at the Senior Staff level of the Convention of Atlantic Baptist Churches, Dr. Malcolm Beckett will be leaving later this year to assume the role of Lead Pastor of Grand Bay Baptist Church in Grand Bay, NB.

In 1988, Dr. Beckett was called from pastoral ministry into denominational ministry and served as the Director of Evangelism. Since March of 2000 he also served as Interim Part-Time Director of Home Missions and Church Planting for the Convention and in 2001 became the Director of Atlantic Baptist Mission. Dr. Beckett also served as Interim Executive Minister from 2007-2008.

Reflecting on Dr. Beckett’s transition, Executive Minister Dr. Peter Reid stated “While we say congratulations to Grand Bay and to Malcolm in this new calling from the Lord, we are saddened to think that Malcolm is moving on. Malcolm has served so long and so well as a Senior member of the staff and has gained great respect throughout our constituency as a leader and I am deeply grateful for his partnership in ministry.”

We will certainly miss Dr. Beckett at the denominational level; his wisdom and sensitivity to spiritual matters within our Convention has been invaluable. We pray for he and Laura as they make this transition.
