AJ was born in Pembroke, Ontario (actually during Zion Hill Family Camp ’82) into a pastor’s family. He was raised in the Standard Church, accepted Christ at a young age and was called into ministry during high school. AJ became a Wesleyan Pastor after graduating from Kingswood University in 2005. AJ and his wife Julia have been married for 12 years and have 3 children; Adele (6), Caleb (5), and Nolan (1). AJ is currently pastoring Yarmouth Wesleyan Church in Yarmouth, NS. Beyond the church he has the privilege of serving on the district Maximizing Impact Team, RCMP chaplain, and as the Assistant District Superintendant with the Atlantic DS, Rev. Peter Moore.
Merri-Lynn and husband Kevin have been married for 30 years and have 3 grown children: Candace, Corey and Collin and Son in law Mark. They are also Grandparents to the most perfect grandson Brody. They are thoroughly enjoying the stage of life they are at in their journey together. Growing up in a talented musical Christian family has greatly influenced Merri-Lynn.
As a pastor’s daughter, Merri-Lynn was always involved in church music. She has 28 years of teaching experience in the Pembroke area and loves leading people in praise and worship each Sunday.
Nathan graduated from Christ College, now Pacific Life Bible College, in Langley, BC in 2014 with a Bachelor’s of Theology. He and his family moved to Ottawa in 2017 and quickly fell in love with the people at Cornerstone Wesleyan Church in North Gower, where Nathan will be taking over as the youth pastor this fall. Nathan is no stranger to the Ottawa Valley though, his father was a pastor in Pembroke for the last 12 years, during which time Nathan participated in youth programs with Wesley Community Church and Pembroke Pentecostal Tabernacle. He is passionate about following Christ and discipling others to know Him.
