Dr Wayne Sehmish was raised in a non-Christian home and received Christ as a teenager at a Gospel outreach. He came to Thailand from Australia twelve years ago. Prior to coming, Dr Sehmish was the senior Pastor of the Good Shepherd Baptist Church in Brisbane, Australia. During Dr Sehmish’s time there, the church rapidly grew in members and influence and became known regionally and throughout Asia as Australia’s most influential independent Baptist Church. He is frequently invited to preach in Australia, America and Asia, but has committed himself primarily to the furtherance of the Gospel in Thailand and the training of men for the Lord’s work there.
