James Baker

Regional Coordinator – Blackpool

I first connected with ROC through new work being pioneered in Blackpool in 2014. I love the way in which ROC works to engage the local community, and with my background in Community Development and Church Planting, I’ve wanted to get right behind all the work that ROC does!

As well as working for ROC, I am a Pastor in my local church (Valley Church), and I work part-time for the largest social housing provider in Blackpool in Community Development, who we are partnering with to develop a new ROC project in Blackpool, Community Action Team. 

I’m a husband to the most gorgeous wife, a father to the most gorgeous little girl, I’m a pun-master, a hard worker, and most of all I love Jesus and building His Church! I’m also a musician and songwriter, and I love to lead people in worship.
