Our Team

Care and oversight of this community is through a team of seasoned and dedicated servant-leaders, all of which have been missionaries, church planters and experienced ministry leaders. Our ‘Elders’ team is:

John and Kathleen Baker – The Baker’s have done missions work in India and Mexico and have given key pastoral  leadership to church plants and other projects.  John and Kathy currently lead a Connexion small group which meets monthly. The Baker’s have three grown children and something resembling a dog.

David and Anita Ruis – Church planters, pastors, worship leaders, songwriters – these guys do it all.  Currently they are on our leadership team but when they have time they oversee Vineyard Canada!  Ruis’ have four grown children and a beautiful granddaughter.

Joe and Kristin Eapen – Doing and amazing job caring for our Youth, these guys have huge hearts for India and have established ministry bases there.  They are planning a ministry trip to India summer 2017.  Eapen’s are about to expand their numbers to three children, expected in November.

Jan and Coral Steffen – The Steffen’s are the newest addition to the team, stepping into the lead pastoral role.  They have been church planters, pastors, and involved with ministry to the persecuted church.  They have four grown children, two grandchildren and are not allowed to have pets.

Our financial oversight is faithfully stewarded through our Board of Directors:                                          Pat Groening, Mark Stokes, and Coral Steffen
