Simon Mahoney – Youth Pastor

Simon Mahoney is the Youth Pastor at Blockhouse Bay Baptist and has held that position since August 2010. He is married to Susan who is a Doctor, and they have 3 young children.

Simon grew up in Christchurch before finishing high school in Auckland. This was followed by an extended OE, which included a year in Norway, summer camps in the US (where he became a Christian), working on a Kibbutz in Israel, and time living and working in England. This was followed by a 2 year stint in Texas where Simon went to a small bible school just outside of Houston.
Returning to New Zealand in 2002, Simon started studying for a Degree in Ministry at BCNZ (now Laidlaw College) while also working part time in youth ministry. After finishing his degree in 2004 Simon has been involved in full time youth ministry ever since. Simon has also just started a Masters in Applied Theology which will keep him busy for the next few years. Simon is a little sports mad, any sport will do but particularly soccer, golf and running and he may have a slight caffeine addiction.
