Dan King - Pastor to Youth & Young Adults

Dan King - Pastor to Youth & Young Adults

Dan and his family moved to Parksville in 2008 to join the PFBC community and take the role of Pastor to Youth and Young Adults.

 

He grew up between the cities of Parksville (the island life) and Saskatoon, SK (the prairie life), but has to say that this location is much more conducive to riding his scooter, so he likes it better!!

 

In his spare time, Dan loves to spend time with Charlene, Jordan and Sierra (his family), throw house parties for his friends, and do a bit of skim boarding at the beach!

Christina Gourlay - Director of Children's Ministry

Christina Gourlay - Director of Children's Ministry

Christina moved to Parksville from Ontario in June of 2015 to take on the role of Director of Children's Ministry here at PFBC.  On a Sunday morning, you can usually find her upstairs overseeing the various aspects of Kidzville, while hanging out with kids, talking with volunteers or connecting with families.  Teaching children about Jesus and what it looks like to have a relationship with Him is the driving force behind everything that happens in Kidzville.  Outside of work, Christina enjoys a good walk (in good weather!), watching a good movie, and spending time with friends.
