Steve Maina


Steve Maina is a statutory member of the Trust Board. He has served within the Church all his life and was ordained as a priest in the Anglican Church in Kenya in 2004. Steve was appointed head of the New Zealand Church Missionary Society in 2009, prompting the move to New Zealand with his wife and two daughter. He became Bishop of the Nelson Diocese in 2019. While New Zealand is home and Maina feels well-placed to serve the top of the South, he still has Kenyan roots, evident in his love of coffee and a desire for locals to share their favourite running tracks with him.
