My wife and I moved to Canada only recently from Minnesota. We have four children, a couple of son-in-laws, and one soon-to-be spoiled grandchild.

I enjoy most major sports (especially the Green Bay Packers), hunting, fishing, weightlifting, and playing cards.

We are rookies here in Calgary, learning all things Canadian…slower speed limits (ouch!), free health care (wow!), and saying things like “sorry” and “no worries” a lot. You get it, eh?! 

We have enjoyed getting to know Bethany Chapel and its wonderful people. We look forward to all that God will do here in the future.

My wife Lynn and I moved to Calgary and Bethany in 1986 right after getting married. We have three grown children, two of which are already married. They all love the Lord and desire to follow Him. We have been involved in many aspects at Bethany over the years and are delighted to serve with many gifted and creative people who desire to see the Good News of Jesus Christ proclaimed.

If you ever find yourself in the church neighbourhood I would welcome a visit or we could even grab a coffee.

My family moved to Calgary in 2004 and I’ve been attending Bethany Chapel ever since, joining the children’s ministry team at the start of 2015 while I finished a degree in English Literature. My husband, Cody, and I met here and were married several months after I started in this ministry. I’ve recently completed a certificate in event planning, which I’ve had the opportunity to use in helping to organize family events. I love getting to know the kids and seeing them begin to understand the Bible and God’s love for them!

I have worked at Bethany Chapel since 2005, and we have attended Bethany since 1996. I first began working in the administration office and then moved into the Community / Women's Ministries Director position. I love Jesus, life, the beauty of nature and being creative with the gifts God has given me. I love our community friends and the good people of Bethany Chapel. It is a real privilege to work with people and I love to hear their stories. Come into the office some time and share your story with me. I am married to Erich and we have three married children and three beautiful granddaughters. We love being a part of this great community and look forward to meeting you.

I was born and raised in the constant struggle of war with no opportunity for education but God has blessed me with a good and beautiful wife Nyalithi and three lovely kids Kenzy, Songa and Mer; and God blessed me with a job at Bethany Chapel as custodian. I call Calgary home where I wish my kids to have a better life. I want to increase my education and put the difficulties of my past behind me.
