Matt Rice

LEAD PASTOR

WHAT is YOUR VISION FOR MINISTRY?

My heart is to make multiplying disciples of Jesus wherever I go in life. I love to teach God's Word, and it is incredibly humbling and fulfilling to watch people learn and apply the truths of Scripture in their own lives. I want to inspire people to continually be on mission, living in authentic community together.

What is something that most people don't know about you?

 I own an excessive number of baseball and hockey cards, which started back when I was a little boy. They really just take up space in my basement, but they have inadvertently caused me to learn and memorize countless statistics.

Who is someone you admire and why?

I admire my parents, my older brother, and my two older sisters. I really do look up to them. If we're talking about someone from history, I would go with Sir Winston Churchill, who although he had his share of flaws, combined his actions and words to take a stand against evil in the world.

If you could have any superpower in the world, what would it be and why?

 If I could have any superpower in the world, being a history major, I like the idea of being able to time travel. It would be amazing to travel back in time to see and participate in certain events. I don't know what to think about traveling into the future though!

Caleb Bonney

associate pastor of family ministries

WHAT is YOUR VISION FOR MINISTRY?

My desire is to see lives transformed by the power of the Gospel Message.  This is an intergenerational message that transcends our boundaries and expectations as we understand what God has done for us through His Word.

WHAt is your favourite movie?

I thoroughly enjoy the Shawshank Redemption! It is a powerful story of a man falsely accused and imprisoned with a unique look at moral development, freedom, and friendship.

WHO Is someone you admire and why?

I admire my beautiful wife, Cass, who is constantly looking for opportunities to serve and love others. She is remarkable in so many ways and motivates me to be the godly man that I am meant to be. God, in His wisdom, has placed her in my life for His glory!

What makes you happy?

I love learning new things! There are tons of things that I do not know and I am usually excited about comprehending intriguing subjects by reading dictionaries, listening to podcasts, and having thoughtful conversations.

Keith Brown

discipleship director

WHAT is YOUR VISION FOR MINISTRY?

My vision is to see every Christ follower doing more sharing of the Good News with not-yet believers and seeing people becoming disciples of Jesus who make disciples.

What is something that most people don't know about you?

 I was a farmer before I heard the call to receive Jesus and His gifts, to follow Him, and to be a lover and fisher of others.

WHO Is someone you admire and why?

I admire Nicky Gumbel, the developer of the Alpha course. I admire him because he is a man who seeks first the leadership of Jesus and the Holy Spirit and as a result has been able to equip people of many nations and many denominations to share the Gospel with their friends, neighbors, work colleagues and others through the Alpha course, training events and resources. 

WHAT ARE YOU HAPPIEST DOING WHEN YOU'RE NOT WORKING?

Playing with my grandkids.

Josiah Milnes

Worship director

WHAT is YOUR VISION FOR MINISTRY?

To provide space for people where they can, in safety, come before God the Heavenly Father, deepen their relationship with Jesus the Saviour King, and live in the power and peace of the Holy Spirit. 

What is something that most people don't know about you?

Ever since I was a kid, people have asked me for relationship/marriage advice!  

Who is someone you admire and why?

Besides my dear Nan, Dietrich Bonhoeffer. He was a brilliant theologian, but his heart's desire was to be a faithful disciple of Jesus. He took the call of James 1 seriously, especially verse 12, suffering and paying the ultimate price for the One who sacrificed His life for us.  

What makes you happy?

My greatest happiness is seeing my friends encounter then live in the reality of God's loving presence in their lives! Alongside that: time well-spent with people, a funky instrumental riff, a block of aged cheddar cheese, a historical drama or documentary, a fun game of chess, euchre or RISK...oh, and poutine.

Alex & Brittney Freeland

interns

WHAT is YOUR VISION FOR MINISTRY?

Our desire for ministry would be that through our conduct, conversation and teaching people would see the life-changing love of Christ and as they learn more of His grace that they would become more like Him.

What is something that most people don't know about you?

Alex: I grew up living on site at a Christian summer camp/retreat center. Over the years I was privileged to serve alongside my family, cooking and cleaning most weekends to host retreats for churches from the city.

Who is someone you admire and why?

Some individuals that we both admire would be our parents. Brittney’s for their great examples of loyalty and perseverance and Alex’s for their examples of hard work and resilience.

What are you happiest doing when you are not working?

Brittney: When I am not working I love to organize and do housework. Doing laundry is definitely my favourite chore. I'm happiest when I can just putter around home cleaning, baking and sipping coffee!
