Craig Ashby

Adjunct Lecturer

BA Hons (First Class), GradDipTchg, GradDipAppTheol


In 2023 Craig will be teaching the Insights into Christian History course.  Craig loves connecting the dots between the past and present, and is convinced that the Christian faith has had an influential role in forming our modern world.  The Insights into Christian History course will survey some of the inspirational people, perspectives and practices from the past 500 years that have shaped global humanity.

Craig has a background in secondary teaching and pastoral ministry.  After gaining an Arts degree at Otago University, Craig has gone on to complete postgraduate qualifications in education, theology and history. Craig is currently the Lead Pastor at Alexandra Baptist Church in sunny Central Otago.  Prior to serving in this role Craig was the Pastor for Students at a large urban church in Palmerston North.  He loves Jesus, his family and friends, mountain biking, punk rock and berry ice-cream…pretty much in that order.
