Pastor Bert is one of those rare individuals, whose gifts and shepherd’s heart truly reflect his title. He pastors the Westside Community Church family with a heart that reflects God’s acceptance and grace.
To Bert, servant-leadership is not just a ministry philosophy, but a character requirement for effective church leadership.
He has a passion for worship and the Word – which are meant to be honest representations of our love for God and His love for us, respectively.
Bert longs for the church to become an accepting, caring and forgiving family of Christ followers, with a heart to reflect Christ’s love and character to the people around them every day.
Over the past 25 years, Bert has served PAOC churches in Nelson and Salmon Arm, BC, as well as Edmonton and Lacombe, AB.
He married Donna in 1987, and they have been blessed with three awesome kids (and one son-in-law).
