The Preaching is shared by the leadership
Steve and Joyce Dennis were missionaries
in North Africa and served locally for 20yrs
Ed and Colleen Turner - 40 years pastoral
including 20+ years in Thorhild in part and
full time pastoral care.
Reinhard and Rizelle Dittmer - a Lutheran
minister, "on loan to us" -by the will of God
originally from Germany and married a S.
African lady -after they met in Canada!
Lance and Cheryl Sheppard - millitary medic
and family of three girls, bring life and variety
to an otherwise aging church community, The
new and younger life is part of our growing in
the community of young families now attending.
The BIBLE is the word of God and if interpreted and applied correctly is the guide for the Christian's daily life.
This may not be the most sensational way to preach -but we believe the context of the passage, setting of the Bible times and the combined influence of the whole message of the Bible gives us the most accurate and reliable approach to understanding the Word of God.
It is our intent to preach these messages, passage by passage to provide "the whole counsel of God."

Requirements of a Church Leader (Titus 1:6-9)
6 An elder must live a blameless life. He must be faithful to his wife, and his children must be believers who don't have a reputation for being wild or rebellious.
7 For an elder must live a blameless life. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered; he must not be a heavy drinker, violent, or dishonest with money.
8 Rather, he must enjoy having guests in his home, and he must love what is good. He must live wisely and be just. He must live a devout and disciplined life.
9 He must have a strong belief in the trustworthy message he was taught; then he will be able to encourage others with wholesome teaching and show those who oppose it where they are wrong.
