As part of the Reformed Church in America, our community is led by elders and deacons elected from among the members of the congregation. The elders care for the spiritual concerns of the church, including the organization of worship, the educational ministries, and the care of souls. They also administer the business issues as they relate to the greater church. The deacons care for the practical needs of the church, including the mission and outreach projects, the social events, and the physical care of persons. They also administer the property and finances of the church. Together, the elders and deacons, with the Minister of Word and Sacrament, make up the leadership team, called the “consistory” of the church.
We are currently without a minister, as Pastor Ken set off on Easter Sunday this year to go plant a house church in the community of Palmerston, ON. We are now in the process of deciding what we’re looking for in a new minister, and we hope to start the search process soon.
Our in-house counsellor and director of Living Water Biblical Counselling Ministry, is Christina Labbé, whose office is in the basement of the parsonage (the house on the east side of the church property). She has been training with the Christian Counselling and Education Foundation out of Philadelphia, PA, since 2012. She also holds a diploma in Child and Youth Work from Cambrian College in Sudbury, ON, and has served in a variety of ministries over the years working with victims of abuse, at-risk children and youth, and crisis pregnancies.
