Pastor Paul Vanderkooy

Pastor Paul Vanderkooy has been the pastor of Faith Community Church for the past 17 years. Coming from Ontario, he and his family have loved living in the Maritimes and have completely embraced the quieter and simpler lifestyle of the East Coast. His hobbies include road biking (the kind with pedals and spandex) and playing/fixing/buying guitars. His favourite T-shirt says “No one ever said …’I have too many guitars!’” (His wife bought him that one…) Pastor Paul is married to Susan, and together they are the parents of five children and the grandparents of 4 with a few on the way.

Interim Pastors and Guest Speakers

Faith Community Church occasionally has guest speakers and Interim Pastors when Paul is away. 

Recently, Paul was on medical leave for an extended period where we were blessed with Interim Pastor Jim Petersen and his wife Winnie for 4 months in 2016, and then Pastor Jerry Wurnig and wife Karly (and their newly born baby girl Samantha Ryan) for 10 months in 2017.
