Paul, along with his wife, Jessica, began planting Grace Valley Church in the fall of 2015, after 14 years of ministry in two established churches. Paul’s passion is sharing the good news of Jesus to anyone willing to listen, whether that’s in worship services, small group meetings, or one-on-one conversations over coffee or a pint. When he’s not doing that, Paul enjoys watching his kids play sports (or the English Premier League), reading too many novels, or occasionally fly-fishing on the Grand River.
Mark, his wife, and their children, love Dundas and have lived here since 2010. After over a decade working in landscape construction, he set out to pursue a call to ministry and began taking counselling courses through CCEF in Glenside, PA, eventually completing their available certificate programs. He is currently completing his M. Div. and is under the care of our presbytery.
Megan grew up in the Hamilton area and loves all things Hamilton/Dundas. She has been part of Grace Valley since the launch team and is passionate about the mission and vision of this church. She and her husband Rhys live in Hamilton. When Megan isn’t at the GVC office you can find her teaching piano and flute lessons, walking everybody’s dogs and working through her massive book list.
