Leadership Team

Meet the people that oversee the LifeGroup ministry.


Pastor of Discipleshp
What does this involve?

In LifeGroup ministry, I am responsible for the vision and direction, along with empowering of the lead team (Cohort) to bring structure and execution to everything LifeGroup!

What do you love about your role?

I love this role because I believe with all my heart that it is in the context of relationship that spiritual growth and the mission of Jesus is best realized. I love to see people move into and live out the full potential that God has for each and every person.

What's one thing most people don't know about you?

One thing you might not know about me: as a child and a teen I was quite shy and introverted!


Director of Leadership Development
What does this involve?

With the partnership of the Leadership Team, I support the growth of current LifeGroup Leaders by creating and delivering content or coordinating content for our monthly Leadership Clusters.

What do you love about your role?

I love the opportunity to help leaders become better leaders.

What's one thing most people don't know about you?

I love playing games of every kind and can be very competitive. I’ve recently started to learn golf.

Director of LifeGroup Missions
What does this involve?

In this role I lead a team that is responsible for equipping and motivating our LifeGroups to Get Out and serve.

What do you love about your role?

I love hearing the stories of how Jesus has worked within and outside of the LifeGroups that are serving! It’s in these stories where I can see Jesus at work!

What's one thing most people don't know about you?

I was incredibly introverted as a child, and became extroverted through athletics and leading workshops of hundreds to occasionally thousands of people.

Director of New Leader Orientation
What does this involve?

My role is to support new LifeGroup leaders by providing the guidance needed to equip them with the values, structure and information to help them create healthy and functional groups.

What do you love about your role?

I love the stories I hear from and about the new leaders and their groups as they grow and evolve in their role.

What's one thing most people don't know about you?

I’m secretly really shy. It takes a while for me to open up or the right situation to draw me out of my comfort zone.

Director of Formational Practices
What does this involve?

I lead a team to equip LifeGroups to grow spiritually and pray consistently. This includes writing weekly discussion questions based on the Sunday sermons and strategizing ways to help groups connect with God through a variety of spiritual practices.

What do you love about your role?

I love that discussion questions at the bridge are focused on applying Scripture and making our learning meaningful and practical – and I love being a part of something greater than myself.

What's one thing most people don't know about you?

Apparently, I talk a lot in my sleep – but I have no recollection of this whatsoever! I am not responsible for anything I say or do in my sleep…

Director of Communications
What does this involve?

I am responsible for the strategy of what, when and how the LifeGroup brand is communicated.

What do you love about your role?

It’s great being a part of a team that’s passionate about making LifeGroups as good as they can be, and I enjoy getting stuck in to the challenges this group brings.

I used to produce hip-hop music videos!


Connection Director
What does this involve?

My role is to provide pathways for the unconnected to be connected into LifeGroups

What do you love about your role?

I love meeting people, and when I find out they’re not yet connected into a group, my brain starts churning to think of where they would best fit in. Like a puzzle where the individual pieces come together to create a picture, that’s how I see making connections for people. When they find a group to connect into, it’s a wonderful picture!

What's one thing most people don't know about you?

That I am the biggest Hello Kitty fan (in my house), and amongst the general population!

Director of Leader Care
What does this involve?

My role is build a team who provide a deep level of care for each of our volunteer leaders.

What do you love about your role?

What l love most is showing our leaders how valued they are and that they are not alone in this journey and then having the opportunity to hear their hearts and just love on them deeply.

What's one thing most people don't know about you?

I have a personal obsession with any form of “dark chocolate”.


Director of Group Care
What does this involve?

My role is to encourage and equip LifeGroup Leaders to cultivate an environment where LifeGroup members are caring for each other.

What do you love about your role?

I love that this role enables others to love others!

What's one thing most people don't know about you?

If you know me, you probably know that I love coffee… but you probably don’t know that I prefer it iced rather than hot (even in the dead of Canadian winter)!
