As the Lead Pastor of MBC since May of 2020, Pastor Jon provides teaching, leadership, and guidance for the church as a whole. He believes that through the power of the Holy Spirit and the grace of God, when diverse people come together we can be greater than the sum of our parts and are strengthened by our differences, not divided.
An avid cook, a huge Toronto Raptors fan and a passionate reader, throughout his life Pastor Jon has called many places home including small town, urban and rural Alberta, a remote village in Indonesia, and a large city high in Andes of Bolivia. But he, his best friend Kate and their two young daughters, Abigail and Charlotte, have settled in small town Saskatchewan following the calling to Pastor at MBC.
A member since 1984, Val knows this building possibly better than anyone. She gives any task her all and is involved in so many ways, not just in our church but in our community as well. Tasked with keeping our facilities maintained, Val wears many hats and is always ready to do whatever's needed to make things happen. Her servant heart is evident in all she does.
Married to Don, her hobbies, passions and heart, surround people. Family get togethers, feeding people and having people in her home are the things she enjoys most.
Experienced in missions and office management, Elesha joined the MBC team in August 2020. After getting married during a pandemic and moving to Saskatchewan, she dove into her new position providing logistical and administrative support to our staff and ministries. Elesha brings structure, organization and unity to the myriad of things that go on everyday at MBC.
Married to Jordan, Elesha loves traveling, crafts, board games and - being the extrovert she is - anything social.
