Rev Pierre Jean-Louis (BTh; MTS)

Pierre.JeanLouisOrdination

Rev Pierre has served the Church since May 2015, first in Ottawa then in Edmonton as an Appointed Designated Minister. Our Board has decided that the quality and body of his ministry and his life’s experience is deserving of being moved to the rank of Ordained Minister as of November 23rd 2017. Carried unanimously.

Our church has several of its ministers set apart to focus their ministry on conducting wedding ceremonies for couples who are not members of the fellowship. These ministers make their witness in a variety of important ways but conducting weddings is a primary concern. Rev Pierre is a Minister of Pastoral Care in every sense of that word who makes time for his other ministries..

Outreach & Church Growth

Part of my ministry is conducting weddings for non church members via Life Celebrations – Covenant of Marriage, hoping to add them to the Church Fellowship.
I also serve :
Elder Care. He is now a chaplain at large to the senior’s communities in Edmonton
Special supporting ministry to the LGBTQ+ community.
Teaching Ministry to the vulnerable sector.
Helping with the spiritual needs of people with mental disabilities

Pierre says: “My current focus is simple, I prefer to promote my support of the elderly and work to promote recognition and independence for these vulnerable members of our society. I have worked with seniors, Alzheimer’s patients, as well as people with intellectual disabilities and continue to do so. I have found that promoting a spiritual relationship through pastoral care helps to create independence.”
