Sam Kilpatrick

Programme Leader (Youth Ministry), Lecturer  

PostGradDipTh, GradDipBus, BAppTheol


Sam has been at Carey since 2010 and has held various roles during that time with engagement in youth ministry, events and marketing, and our community life as a college. Sam now focuses on training our youth pastoral leadership students, teaching in undergraduate courses, and playing a key role in our Ministry Training Department.

Over the years Sam has been involved in several Baptist churches, both as a volunteer and on pastoral staff teams. Sam has a deep love for the local church and ministry with young people. His work at Carey helps to combine this passion for the church with his skills and experience in supporting students into their calling for ministry. Sam is currently completing a Doctor of Ministry through Fuller Theological Seminary.  

I really enjoy working at Carey, it is a place that seeks the transformation of lives through the renewing of minds, reorienting of hearts, and the upskilling of hands!
