Pastor Will Burgess joined RCEFC as our pastor of English Ministries in March 2018. He has been involved as a lay leader in the Evangelical Free Church of Canada since 2006 and first developed a passion for pastoral ministry in pastoral internships in small groups, preaching, and youth and young adults’ ministries at our sister churches of NDEFC (currently Northside Community Church) and FLEFC.
Will is a life-long student and has keen interests in history, theology, and linguistics, which he pursued at UBC and ACTS (TWU), graduating with his Masters of Divinity from Trinity Western Seminary in 2015. Will met Christine, who was a nurse living in Langley, at FLEFC young adults’ group and they began their relationship a year later (they married in 2017) while living in separate cities as Will served as a youth pastor at Mountain View EFC in Chilliwack.
Will has a passion for teaching followers of Christ to believe and live the truth, and for apologetics and lifelong evangelism in the local community. He is always happy to get to know people better and can be reached via phone, e-mail, or social media to set up a chat.
