Who We Are
To Be Filled
As of June 2022, the position of Senior Pastor is vacant and the search to fill this role is underway. We are so grateful to our former Senior Pastor for his many years of ministry at Bethel, and we are excited to see who God calls as our next Senior Pastor!
Family Ministries Pastor | email@example.com
Jamie joined the Bethel team as the Family Ministries Pastor in 2009. She is passionate about using her creativity to help kids and their families grow closer to Jesus and closer to each other. She loves to have fun, and her husband Rob always keeps her laughing. Together they have 2 beautiful daughters and she is known to flash pictures of her adorable grandson if you sound even remotely interested. In her spare time she enjoys knitting, reading and beating Rob at Scrabble!
Youth Pastor | firstname.lastname@example.org
Connor joined the Bethel team in September 2020! Previously serving in ministry at Camp IAWAH, Connor has many years of experience working with middle school and high school students in a summer camp context and he is now excited to be able to teach students about Jesus all year round! Connor is an avid runner and a die-hard Ottawa Senators fan.
Communications & Media Coordinator | email@example.com
Keri join the team in September 2017, but has been worshipping and serving at Bethel since 2007. Before working at Bethel, Keri had a 10+ year career at a local hotel & conference centre, so she brought a lot of hospitality and organizational experience to her initial role of Office Assistant at Bethel. However, she quickly discovered news skills in the areas of design, media, and AV, so her role has evolved over time to that of Communications & Media Coordinator. Keri is generally at the church Tuesdays to Fridays from 10am to 5pm, and she can also be seen running around behind the scenes on Sunday mornings. Keri loves cooking, reading recipes and just generally talking about food, and it is a proven fact that she has the best (and healthiest) lunches of everyone on staff!
Church Administrator | firstname.lastname@example.org
Carmen is a French Canadian by birth, from the Ottawa area, and moved to Kingston in 1996 when her soldier-husband Mike was posted here. They have been here ever since, and now call Kingston home since Mike's retirement. Carmen’s background is Law (although she graduated waaaaaay back in 1993, and never really practiced, in case you’re tempted to ask her for free legal advice – you’ll get what you pay for!). She's been working part-time for the church since 2006 (you'll usually find her there Tue-Fri, 9-1, and on Sundays, of course!), first as the church’s Secretary, and now as the Administrator. Her job is to make sure Bethel's administrative framework (including policy and abuse prevention and training) run smoothly so that our pastoral colleagues are free to minister. In her spare time, Carmen loves being active (soccer is a particular sports obsession, although she does love sports in general), and she's also an avid postage stamp collector (GIVE HER YOUR OLD STAMPS! 🙂 and cross-stitcher (a.k.a “how-to-keep-your-hands-busy-so-you-don’t-eat-in-front-of-the-tv” 🙂 ) Mike and Carmen don’t have children, but their house is nonetheless maintained for the total comfort and convenience of their two (male) cats: Timmy and Isosceles, the Beloved Idiots.
