Elders' Corner

The Elders are pleased to welcome Roy Chelsom and Clint Russell to the group of Elders. Both have faithfully served as Elders in the past and we appreciate the experience and giftedness that these men bring to the table.

With gratitude and heartfelt thanks we also acknowledge Peter Jamieson’s service and leadership as the Elder Chair. Peter is stepping down as the Elder Chair following the typical 1-2 year term in the role. We are excited, encouraged and blessed to have Peter remain as an Elder and continue to serve in many ministries.

Going forward some of the traditional Elder Chair responsibilities have been divided into two roles, the Elder Chair and the Elder Vice-Chair. The purpose in doing this to provide greater focus, support and leadership to various individuals and groups within the body. Russell Watts will take on the role of Elder Chair and Kevin McDonald the role of Elder Vice-Chair.

Thank you for your prayers. Please continue to pray as we recognize that it is “Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.” - Ephesians 3: 20-21 (NASB)

Transitional Pastor

The congregation is invited to a commissioning and welcome reception for John and Judy Prociuk on Sunday,  August 6th. 

John received his BA (Honors) in Psychology from the University of Saskatchewan in 1980, followed by a Master of Divinity (1985) and Master of Theology (1986) from Regent College in Vancouver.  

He subsequently has served in a variety of pastoral roles including Senior Pastor positions, and as an Area Minister and Director of Clergy Care with the Canadian Baptists of Western Canada.  In recent years, John has been involved as a Transition Minister for Calgary area churches.

John describes his training and experience as developing skills and passions for transitional ministry, program review and development, team building, conflict resolution, and teaching and writing.  The Elders and the Transitional Pastor Search Committee have been impressed with John’s established track record in the Transitional Pastor role, his ability to articulate a clear plan for how he will help Bethany Chapel with the transition, and his obvious heart for the Lord and His people.
