Meet the team of pastors who serve at Central Heights Church. We are here to serve you and would love to get to know you better.
Tim is most excited to see people come to know Jesus and grow in their relationship with him. He loves building into others and developing leaders who will follow Jesus with courage and love others with compassion. Family, food, and skillfully made lattes are gifts of life that TK thoroughly enjoys. Playing sports is a big favorite too as he works hard to keep ahead of his son-in-laws now nipping at his heels.
DarLee-Ann is enthusiastic about seeing kids and families love God and live out their faith throughout the week. Her heart is that every kid knows that God made them, God loves them and He is always with them. Time with family is a priority for DarLee-Ann. From Taekwondo, to camping, to movie nights, she's up for anything that gives her time to laugh and have fun with her husband Andrew and their two boys, Aidan and Nathan.
Young Adults & Community Groups Pastor
David is passionate about helping the next generation live for Jesus. He loves teaching the Bible and reading to expand his mind and form his heart. If he's not reading, David likes to get lost in a good movie and in listening to his vinyl record collection. His greatest enjoyment is his wife Kathryn and spending time with his sons Levi and Jack.
Discipleship & Communications Pastor
Jesse joyfully seeks to help people be amazed by the Bible and the one it points to. He enjoys studying apologetics and culture in order to strategically show how Jesus is relevant in every time and place. You’ll probably find him experiencing films at their full audio and visual capabilities in a theatre, trying new restaurants with his wife Janelle, or humorously burning energy adventuring with his two boys, Zane and Zadok.
Pastor to Seniors
Larry believes that the call of God does not end when our regular working life ends. Instead, retirement is a time to rediscover your gifts and purpose in life, and to find new opportunities for fellowship and service. He enjoys good espresso, fishing on the Vedder and saying encouraging words. Larry and his wife Carol are long time members at Central Heights and love when they can get together with their three grown children, all living nearby in the lower mainland.
Lyndon enjoys helping people find a sense of community in a variety of settings. He’s passionate about all ages discovering their God given identity and unique gifting. He uses fun and sometimes 'bizarre' object lessons to teach biblical truth, practicing this skill as chaplain for the MEI Hockey Academy and Fraser Valley Thunderbirds, and occasionally at Camp Stillwood. Alongside his wife Doretha, Lyndon loves spending time with their four adult children and their spouses, and can often be found on a treadmill or elliptical trainer at Planet Fitness.
Nathan wants the world to know that Jesus impacts every area of life, and loves walking alongside others in the pursuit of holistic, life-long obedience to Jesus. In his free time, Nathan enjoys spontaneous midnight runs to Denny's, a variety of sports, and escaping BC's humid heat (he's originally from Alberta). Having said that, nothing compares to a good road trip with good friends.
Rod is thankful for the opportunity to serve others and be their biggest fan. His focus is on teamwork and helping people maximize their potential. You can find him engaging in adventures in the great outdoors, or coaching basketball in his spare time. Rod and his wife Amanda are experiencing life as empty nesters, so both are involved in many things, yet still chase their three adult children around in their activities.
Rushia visibly pursues a lifestyle of sharing the love of Jesus, and celebrating his impact in the lives of people. She loves teaching the word of God and helping the hurting find hope. Adventures in the great outdoors and family time with her husband Dave and her kids is a must! Rushia loves exploring, traveling, learning, and hospitality.
Worship Arts Pastor
Wes is passionate about creating authentic spaces of worship for God to move in power. He loves using the arts to point people to Jesus, the true worship leader. To Wes, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing someone give their life to Christ for the first time. Wes enjoys creating music with his friends and editing photos in his favourite coffee shop. If he doesn’t respond to your texts, you can assume he is out in the bush hiking a new trail.
