Dave currently serves as our “Transitional Pastor”. He and his wife Kathy have served 22 years as a local church pastoral couple, eight years with Church Resource Ministries (An international ministry of leadership development) and ten years in denominational ministry. They have worked with many pastors/leaders and two hundred churches of various denominations through the years. They have four grown children and five grandchildren and reside in Chilliwack BC.
Dave’s passion is to assist leaders and churches in clarifying their call and direction by listening to God. He longs to see healthy, safe, churches marked by love, mercy and truth where “lost” people find hope in Jesus and “found” people discover their place in the larger story of His “wild” love.
Gerald began ministering at Grace in August of 2004, together with his wife Bev. He desires that people grow in their faith, strengthen their trust in God, deepen their love for God’s Word and understand it better-how it applies to their lives and how to obey it. His greatest desire is to bring people to a closer walk with Jesus.
Spending time in prayer, organizing life groups, visiting people, teaching and preaching and connecting with people are some of the tasks Gerald is involved in. He loves being in the Word and sharing it with people. If you have any spiritual questions or are in need of prayer, talk to Gerald.
Experience includes pastoral ministry in southern Manitoba, along with eleven years working in West Africa in Bible translation, linguistics, and pastoral ministry.
Gerald has both a B.A. and an M.A. in Biblical Studies, 30 hours of graduate linguistic studies, a Master of Divinity (equiv.), and is a Doctor of Ministry (cand.), having completed the seminars, and presently working on his dissertation project.
Gerald has a deep interest in missions, reading, spending time with his family and exploring God’s marvelous creation (especially the mountains).
May we continue to grow together in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ (2 Peter 3:18).
Steve is wildly in love with Jesus, his family (wife Terri and kids Janae and Jace) and Kingdom building! At Grace he serves as pastor to youth and young adults and his heart is for all who are willing to venture in seeking God together with him. In addition to these things he loves worship through music, cycling and laughing!
In recent years (who are we kidding? In recent DECADES!) Steve as been deeply involved in camp ministry. He served for many years as Director of Leadership & Discipleship at the Winkler Bible Camp and exciting opportunities exploded from there. From 2005-2015 Steve served as VP of Operations at Children’s Camps International – an organization that equips leaders around the world to develop effective, ongoing ministries for youth, children and families. Through this time he was able to collect passport stamps on several continents and meaningful friendships around the world. He has also had an exciting career in the areas of grass cutting, floor mopping and was even a paramedic once upon a time!
Steve attended Briercrest Bible College and is currently pursuing further studies at Providence Theological Seminary.
