God called Pastor Ralph and his wife Alina to Listowel in the fall of 2009 and he began his ministry at Bethel. He is thankful that Bethel CRC is a wonderful mix of believers, both young and old, who are growing in their faith, and who are counting on their pastors to help them learn how to do that. He is energized by being with people, by teaching them, and by preaching to them. His hope is to be able to faithfully show up each day, as one called to serve, and to diligently use his gifts to do the work that Jesus Christ has prepared for him to do.
Pastor Henry came to Bethel CRC in August 2014. He loves Christ deeply and deeply loves Christ’s bride, the church. One of his goals in ministry is to help prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ might be built up, that it might reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God. (Ephesians 4:12-13)
Henry and his wife, Melanie, have 4 children, who give him great joy and help ensure there is rarely a dull moment in life.
Pastor Bart has been leading our youth and young adults ministries at Bethel since the spring of 2013. He is passionate about seeing students come to know Jesus in a way that enables them to be on mission for the glory of God. When he is not working you can find him studying or spending time with his wife Tina and his daughter Addison. He enjoys soccer, video games, and spending time with family and friends.
