Glenn Loewen is our Senior Pastor.
He dearly loves his wife, Maribeth, and 4 children; Christian, Anicka, Marcus, and Natasha.? More than that, however, he wants to be identified as a supreme lover of Jesus. His passions include, prayer, revival and revival history, the persecuted church, and for the church to once again embrace the orthodox truth of Scripture.? He’s hungry for more of a revelation and encounter with Jesus.
He wants to be found blameless; walking in deep intimacy with Jesus when He returns for His praying Bride.”
Les Kroeker is our Pastor of Church Ministries.
He married Sharon in 1986 and two years later was called to PEC – Sharon?s home church – as a youth minister/minister-in-training. Les wants to be known as a man of integrity, a loving and faithful witness of Jesus, encouraging others to trust and follow and love Jesus above all else. He is captivated by the evidence of God in nature and one reason they enjoy Portage so much is the variety of outdoor recreation possibilities ? canoeing, mtn biking, x-country skiing, camping, exploring on ATV or 4×4.
Myrna Buhr is our Church Secretary.
Two of Myrna?s teenage ?dreams? were; to organize and run an orphanage, and to work at ?Back to the Bible? as a secretary. These were not realized but she has worked with children in different capacities for many years and is a secretary at a Bible-believing church! Her heart?s desire is to keep growing stronger in prayer and deeper in relationship with her Lord and Savior. Myrna wants to be known as someone who is sold out for Jesus.
Myrna and Garry (husband) have attended PEC for 34 years. Myrna enjoys her family and grandchildren, living in the country, nature, travelling, meeting new people, music, reading, riding her motorcycle and racing her Mustang. She is passionate about ?immigrant? ministry and sharing Jesus with them.
