Council

Our church Council serves the FGCC Congregations in a governance role ensuring that we stay focused on our mission and vision, and abide by our operating by-laws and policies. Council does this through strategic planning, spiritual and organizational leadership, measuring results, and holding the Lead pastor accountable.  

Council members are discerned through a congregational committee called the Leadership Discernment and Development Committee, then elected by our membership at a congregations meeting.

Galen Heinrichs, Joel Dyck, Ken Willms, Gil Klassen,
Janice Block (Secretary), Erica Fraser, Anna Robinson,
Brian Heagy (Moderator), Cornie Unger
