Donnalyn Froese

Pastor of Care

Having been born and raised in Camrose, the Camrose Church of God has always been her home congregation. Growing up in Camrose offered her the rare opportunity to know many of the ABI/Gardner students and ministers from across Western Canada over those years. From the young age of nine she knew she was called into ministry.

Her desire has been that God would direct her path. He has taken her to Red Deer to pastor the Northside Church of God for nearly 17 years, to Gardner College for a short term as president, to Barrhead as interim pastor for a year, to First Church of God in Edmonton and now to ministry here in her home congregation.

Her prayer has always been that she might serve wherever called with integrity, joy and God’s blessing.

She and husband Peter (32 years) enjoy three grown children and four beautiful grandchildren.
