I have been the lead pastor at Sutherland Evangelical Church since 2005. It has been a journey home for me, since I grew up in this church and formerly served as a youth pastor here in the late 80’s. God’s leading is always good and I feel privileged to serve here. Personally, I love to read, take walks with my wife Sheryl, enjoy time with my three great kids or play with my granddaughters. I also love to play and watch sports and run or ride my bike. Mostly I love watching Jesus work in my life and the lives of others as we allow His Word to govern us and His Spirit to guide us. Please contact me with any comments or questions at 306-934-8981 or email me.
I was born and raised in a Christian home by two loving parents and am the youngest of 3 children. Due to my father’s job we moved around to Nipawin, Air Ronge, and eventually landing in Kipling, Saskatchewan. Over the years I completed 1 year of Capernwray Harbour Bible School, worked for more years culminating to my 4 years spent at Millar College of the Bible where I just graduated in 2016. God has taught me much in life especially in regards to trusting in His wisdom, relying on His strength, and when times get hard, placing my hope in Him. I say this because our family went through a very dark year in 2013 with the passing of my father and grandmother. My message through this all is that although my dad has been taken away for a time, I still have a heavenly Father who loves His son and I will proclaim that message of faith, hope, and love until the day I die. I am privileged to be part of the leadership in Sutherland Evangelical Church as their youth pastor.
I started as the Administrative Assistant at Sutherland Evangelical Church in May of 2010 and feel blessed to have this opportunity to be a part of the SEC team. I have been a Christian since the age of 13 and a member of SEC, along with my husband, since 1993, when it was still Westmount Evangelical Church. Besides living life as a follower of Christ, my greatest joys in life are to be the wife of a great guy, the mother to wonderful children and, more recently, the grandmother to an amazing little boy. A few other things that I enjoy are reading, playing Upwords, riding my bike, camping and just hanging out on my quiet acreage. If you need to contact the SEC office, I will gladly take your call or reply to your email. 306-934-8981 or email me.
It was in the early nineteen sixties that the Holy Spirit convicted me and drew me to Himself at an evangelistic tent meeting crusade. I was taught the importance of church and its ministries by the example of my parents. In 1970, I was baptised and married to my wife Ruth in Westmount Evangelical Church, now Sutherland Evangelical. We have been blessed with three children and five grandchildren. With the exception of a few years, I have served the church as treasurer since 1978. I have also had the privilege of being on the Regional and General councils of our Conference, as well as serving on the advisory committee for the Duchess, AB church plant. Please contact me with any questions you may have regarding church finances, donor gifting options, etc.
