Jennifer has been an involved member of our church since 1993. She joined our office staff in 2011 and enjoys the fellowship with the pastoral staff (especially the senior pastor).
Born and raised in Kingston, Ontario, Jennifer attended Canadian Bible College (now Ambrose University) in 1984, where she met her husband Bill. They were married in 1986 and entered ministry a couple of weeks later in Maple Ridge, British Columbia. During their time in British Columbia, Jennifer worked at Focus on the Family in Vancouver. When they returned to Regina, Jennifer completed a Bachelor of Religious Education degree and gave birth to their firstborn son, Kendall.
In January 1993, Jennifer and Bill moved to Ottawa for what they thought was a short-term pastorate! Many years and two sons later (Jason and Aaron), Jennifer has enjoyed the longevity of ministry as a pastor’s wife. Jennifer is the Music Director at East Gate and has long been involved in many ministries, such as decorating, hospitality, children’s crafts, and Bible quizzing.
