I love this church. We are a group of people who are seeking to follow Jesus by growing deep in our faith and living out God’s love in our community. I have a passion for investing in leaders, joining together in worship and having thoughtful conversations with people about life.
I am blessed to have attended several schools that helped equip me for ministry including Redeemer University, Heritage College and Seminary, the Robert E. Webber Institute for Worship Studies and the Parachute School of Toronto! In my 20+ years of ministry experience I have served in a variety of positions such as youth pastor, denominational youth director, church planter and worship arts pastor.
I am a big fan of the beach, espresso, live music and friends…especially all at the same time!
Pastor of Care
For a very long time, the Church has been a central part of my life, and I’ve been serving as Pastor of Care and Fellowship at Trulls Road since 2010. Past career opportunities include Couple & Family Counselling and Elementary School teaching.
It truly is a privilege for me to share in the lives of individuals, both to celebrate the good times and to play a supportive role in the more difficult times. I am passionate about seeing our Trulls Road family grow and ‘be all they can be’, emotionally, relationally and spiritually.
My deep desire within the church and beyond is to be an instrument of hope, and to see persons experience the difference a relationship with Jesus can make in their everyday lives.
My husband, Vic and I are the proud parents of two grown sons, Paul and David. Paul, Amanda and Findley live in Vermont, and Dave, Melanie, Henry and Peter in British Columbia.
Favourite pastimes are hiking, connecting with friends and spending time with our grandchildren who are the joy of my life!
Associate Pastor of Discipleship
It was my joy to join Trulls Road in 2023 after a winding path that included studies in Pre-Med Biology, Art Therapy, Theology, and Spiritual Care in Virginia, British Columbia, and Toronto.
Most recently, I served as the pastor of a small church, and the Spiritual & Supportive Care Coordinator at the hospice in my hometown of Port Perry. Jesus has been my constant through life’s twists and turns, fanning into flames a passion for healing and growth through relational connection, listening prayer, and creative worship.
In my downtime, I like to kick back with a good cup of tea and immerse myself in art, music, and story. I also love a dose of fresh air and sunshine whether I’m walking, paddleboarding, or snowshoeing.
I had the benefit of growing up in a Christian home and came to know Jesus at an early age. My husband Dennis and I and our children, Erin & Mark, began to worship at Trulls Road in 1983. Working for Bell Canada and then managing a small real estate office provided many of the tools needed when I came on staff in December, 1997. I always smile whenever I hear someone say “Oh, you work in a church office … after you type the bulletin, what else do you do?” Working at Trulls Road is a great privilege and I appreciate the opportunity to support the vision and ministry of this church through the gifts God has given me.
I’m thankful that over the years God has allowed me to share the gospel by singing in a quartet (Reunion) with my husband and good friends. I’m enjoying being a Gramma to 5 little cuties and pray that God will use me to influence their lives for Him.
Online Media Coordinator
I have had the wonderful privilege of growing up at Trulls. I have learned of God’s love and also seen it in action through a number of ways throughout my life so far. I’ve spent 4 summers working at Trulls as a Summer Student for Children’s and Youth Ministry. I am now serving as the Online Media Coordinator and am really enjoying this fantastic opportunity.
I graduated from the University of Ontario Institute of Technology in 2016 with my Bachelor of Science and my Bachelor of Education. I’m currently working for the Durham District School Board as an Elementary Teacher.
I enjoy everything baseball – playing, watching, working, etc. If I’m not at home or at one of my jobs, you can probably find me at a baseball diamond somewhere.
