Most life-giving activities for me are opportunities to be outdoors. Being in God’s creation creates space to exhale stresses and be recharged by sunshine, the wind, and various other elements that trigger my senses. Extended times to hike or canoe, camp or bike and sit by a campfire in quiet contemplation are particularly rejuvenating.

Knowing that God has made it possible for me to be forgiven through Christ’s death and resurrection undergirds my life with peace from which I can work and engage in the call given me. 

It has been especially rich to experience times of prayer with others wherein it is evident we know not how we should pray and yet it becomes clear that the Holy Spirit is interceding for us (Romans 8:26-27). So often these times are accompanied with tears and we can sense the sacredness of this holy time. It is a gift to recognize God’s work among us!

Pastor of Community Care

Hey! My name is Greg, I’ve lived in or near Camrose my whole life and am grateful that God has called me to serve at Resurrection. Things that bring me life include most outdoor activities with family and friends whether it’s hiking, canoeing, camping or playing most sports.


One area of ministry that brings me great joy is getting together with people in small groups or one on one for a coffee to chat about life, encourage one another and to spend time in prayer.


It’s been really encouraging to see God at work in our city as he brings people together where they can find a sense of belonging. I’m excited to see what God has planned for Camrose in the days, weeks, and months to come!

Some life giving activites for me are jumping into lakes and rivers, boating, sitting in a hammock or hanging out with a group of friends. experiencing the incredible creation of God is very life-giving


i have found Outreach ministry to be very fulfilling for me to be involved in. As much as I love congregating on a Sunday with the body of Christ, there is something very special about going outside of the church and allowing Christ to use you to share the gospel, pray with someone or just have a conversation with someone who needs it


One way that i have seen god use resurrection is in the youth program. God has provided resurrection with some incredible youth directors and amazing youth who are open to being discipled. He is so faithful to the ministries of Resurrection. I can’t wait to see what He does next!

Youth Director - (Gr. 7-12)

An activity that fills up my cup is mountain biking with friends; the past few summers, a group of my friends and I have gone to the mountains for a camping/biking trip that refills me for daily life.

The thing I love most about being God's child is no matter what my circumstances are, my identity does not change. No matter how good or poorly I do in any given situation, my heavenly Father loves me and seeks me out calling me his own.

One way I have witnessed God at work at Rez is the hunger that a number of the youth have to dig into God's word and go deeper than the surface level.

jr. Youth Director (ages 10-13)

Starting this new season at Rez has been beyond life-giving to me. Being a part of God’s mission through youth ministry or watching friends get married and entering new seasons in life has been reminding me of God’s faithfulness in our lives no matter the circumstance.

I love being one of God's children because I know that there is always radical grace waiting for me from a loving heavenly father. Even in the unpredictable nature of being in ministry, I know there is an eternal sovereign God that is in control. Even if I make mistakes, there is grace, and
God will use unlikely moments that I didn’t plan for his glory.

I have witnessed God work in Camrose through the welcoming and loving nature of the whole community. God uses Camrose’s “small town” feel to create space for families to flourish and be more connected to one another. Camrose has rich church history and prayer at its roots, and I’m excited to see what God has planned for the future.

DOGS/Walking, petting brushing, cuddling. Coffee and fellowship. Creating, whether is in the salon or arts and crafts.


What aspect of ministry do you find most fulfilling?

Connecting with others. Being part of someones life as they go through the highs and lows, especially providing someone with an ear to hear, is very important to me.


How have you witnessed God at work at Resurrection?

All the ways I've seen our church come together for those who are struggling, is an amazing thing and that comes from God; I've seen financial generosity as well as many who give of their time and skills often, for people they hardly know (or don't know at all)

I've been fortunate to experience that in times of struggle.

Getting out into nature and witnessing the incredible details of God's creations is something that grounds me and fills my heart. Also taking my camera out and capturing these intricacies, as well as snapping images of people being active or interacting with each other exuberates me.

I am so thankful to be a child of God, always having our good, good Father's comforting arms wrapped around me. Knowing he has my back, makes it easier for His love to flow through me, as I connect with people in my communities and tackle the highs and lows of todays world.

God works in so many ways, but one of the most powerful things for me is how deep songs of worship and praise can go. Just letting the music/the voices/the lyrics pour over me, gives me a strong sense of God's love for me. I wish for you, that you may also have ways that you can feel that deep love being poured out on you, and anyone that freely accepts God's LOVE. We are all children of our great heavenly Father - let's LOVE each other!
