We, at Elim, are a collection of Christ seekers following in the footsteps of Jesus. Each of us comes as we are, sometimes broken, sometimes needing nourishment, often refreshed, wanting to worship and learn, always ready and willing to use our gifts and abilities to demonstrate Christ's love to each other, to our community and to the neighbor in distant parts of the world.  We are a community of believers welcoming you to worship with us!


Pastor Harold, born in St Catharines Ontario, has spent his career pastoring from Ontario to Alberta in both long term and intentional interim ministries, in churches with memberships from 20 to 950. A graduate of Canadian Mennonite Bible College, (now part of Canadian Mennonite University), University of Waterloo, and Anabaptist Mennonite Seminary, Harold has a deep commitment as an ecu-Mennonite, open to fellow-shipping and dialoguing with Christians of all backgrounds, and respectful of people whose spirituality has not found a worshiping home. Harold's wife, Ingrid, is currently working for Manitoba's agricultural department. She has spent much of her career teaching economics in various universities. Parents of three sons, and two daughters-in-law, and grandparent to 3 (who live in Chicago, necessitating many vacation days there!) Harold loves working with people of all ages and backgrounds. Harold is currently volunteering in the “discovery” time at the South Oaks School in a grade 3/4 class, teaching Bible stories.

Harold loves to push the edges in worship, believing that worship forms from many denominations have much to teach us, as we know that many other denominations are learning from us. Jesus' prayer, in the gospel of John, “that they may become completely one, so that the world may know that you have sent me and have loved them even as you".

Elim, as part of Mennonite Church Canada, is affiliated with both the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada and the Canadian Council of Churches.
