Ian and Jackie Williams are the Senior Leaders of Riviera Life Church which they pioneered in 1995. They have a passionate focus on loving God and loving people.
Ian also has a national role with Assemblies of God Churches in supporting leaders and their churches to “be” the Church and make the difference in the community. Ian also frequently writes articles for a national publication. Jackie’s ethos in life is to “live life to the full” and she loves to encourage others to embrace the “fullness” that is available to all through Jesus Christ.
Jackie has a particular compassion for women who are “hurting and broken” and in 2011 saw the realisation of her dream - a residential home in Torbay, where distressed young women can find refuge and support and restoration which will enable them to take their God-given place in society.
They have four children, Beth, Jordan, Hannah and Reuben.
Jon Baldwin has been the Assistant Leader at Riviera Life Church since January 2013.
He is married to Sarah and they have a son, Harry. Jon also lectures in History part time at South Devon College of Further Education.
Jon and Sarah are passionate about seeing people of all ages released into worship and loving God.
Jon loves to teach, equip and encourage people to explore God’s word. He also enjoys watching his beloved Wales play rugby, especially when they beat the English!
