Meet The Leadership Team
Howie has been married to Judy for over 40 years. Before moving to Camrose in 2018, they both worked at the University of Saskatchwan. Howie worked for a number of religious charities and for Bethany College. Throughout their lives, both have been involved in the local church and its ministries in their area of gifting. They believe in the local church and its ministry to others in the church, as well as to the community.
Randy is one of the "Old Guys," and has been known to say, "back in the days." He enjoys a good cup of coffee and good conversation. He also has a keen interest in those of the visually impaired community. His favorite verse is in Phil 3:12-14
I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.
This is what drives him to carry on the race the Lord has set before all of us, and lay our mistakes before Him, and not carry them with us.
Don started attending the Camrose Church of God at the invitation of his wife-to-be in 1995. He’s been married to Nola for over 25 years and together they have two daughters. Don appreciates the commitment and foresight of the many that came before him in our church as well as the opportunity to journey together and learn about Christ with all those that have been part of this church in his time at Camrose Church of God. He’s previously served in a number of roles in the church and along side the rest of the Leadership Team, Pastoral Leadership and the congregation, looks forward to listening and acting on what God has in mind for our church.
In his spare time, Don enjoys helping out the local theatre group, The Churchmice Players, and outdoor exercise.
Randy is a long-time member of the Camrose Church of God. He and his wife began to attend over thirty three years ago. Their two children were raised with the support of this Church family.
During his walk with this Church, Randy has served in various roles. He has been church chairperson, a committee member on various committees and a Sunday school teacher. He feels this kind of service is important in his life.
Randy relies heavily on God to guide him in all aspects of his faith journey. Returning to service in leadership was not an easy decision after battling mental health issues, but he places his faith in God and prayer. He has always had a deep passion for prayer and listening for God and trusts that God will provide in all aspects of our church life.
