At a congregational meeting on March 10th, the search team recommended that we call Rev. Tif McNaughton to be our new minister beginning in July 2019. The motion to accept the recommendation was passed unanimously. Tif is currently serving at Knox United Church in Fernie, BC. She is a Diaconal Minister commissioned by Alberta Conference in 2018.
Tif’s Bachelor of Arts degree obtained in 2007 includes a major in Global Development and minors in English and Religion. Her diaconal studies were done through the Centre for Christian Studies in Manitoba. Her first day in the Brechin House office is Monday, July 22nd and her first Sunday service at Sands will be July 28th.
It has been a privilege to serve on a search team with such caring, intelligent and hardworking individuals. There were many tasks to complete, on occasion within tight time lines. I hope I speak for the team when I say we are proud to offer the results of work done over the past six months. Thank you for your patience and your prayers during the search process.
Val Neilson, Chair of MPS team
