As lead pastor, Nick is involved in engaging individuals and groups across generations in the areas of worship, education, faith formation, and service.
Nick is a Bible College and Seminary graduate, with degrees in intercultural studies and pastoral care. He has been serving with St. Catharines United Mennonite since 2016.
In addition to his role with the church, he works part-time supporting individuals with developmental disabilities in residential and community settings. When he is not working, he enjoys non-required reading, cycling, hiking, and printmaking.
In his ministry with seniors Pastor Randy engages the community to “finish well.” He supports families in transition through the later stages of life, sharing resources and insights for living life to the fullest.
His post-secondary education includes Bible College, University, Seminary and training as a Spiritual Director.
Randy is active in the community as a writer and publisher, operating “People’s History Publications” dedicated to creating memoirs vital to Canadian history. He volunteers with Civil Air Rescue Emergency Service Niagara.
Randy and his wife, Renate, live in Virgil, and have two adult children and one grandchild.
Eileen grew up attending St. Catharines United Mennonite Church and later moved to Niagara-on-the Lake. She studied Business Administration in College and later worked as a church office administrator in Niagara-on-the-Lake for 20 years. Her most rewarding volunteer ministry was working as a facilitator for “Niagara Eagles”, a social group for young adults with special needs.
Eileen joined us in the Fall of 2019 and has enjoyed reconnecting with the many congregants that she knew as a child here at SCUMC.
