Denver Wilson

Pastor of McIvor Church
Tel: (204) 339-1691 ext. 3

I am a husband to Jannalee, and dad to Esme, Rowan and Lark. I am a visionary leader who finds joy in working with teams. God has given me a passion for the local church – to be a movement of diverse people loving our world as a response to God’s love in Jesus. I am so grateful for how God has shaped my life through the ministry of the church, and I long to see more people encounter God’s transformation in community.
Other Interests: Adventures with my family, most sports (especially ultimate frisbee, hockey, football, and fishing), camping, drumming, home renos, and finding the perfect road trip and playlist pairings.
Areas of Leadership at McIvor Church: working with Council to discern and carry out the vision of the church, preaching/teaching, leading the staff team, equipping small group community.[/text_output]

Kim Stoesz

Pastor of Community Care
Tel: (204) 339-1691 ext. 5

I have a love for the church and consider it a blessing to serve as a pastor.  The church has many roles in our lives and caring for one another in times of hardship and crisis is just one of them.  As the Community Care Pastor I interact with people and families as they walk some of life’s difficult roads.  My husband Gerald is very supportive of my calling and work and we serve in various ways together.  We have 2 adult children who are both married and we have 3 grandchildren.

Other interests: travelling, being creative, movies, baking and good coffee.
Areas of leadership at McIvor Church: care giving, crisis care, end of life care, planning and officiating at funerals. 

Stefan Froese

Pastor of Family & Worship Ministries
Tel: (204) 339-1691 ext. 4

Bio: I have a passion for church systems, forms, behaviours, and how these all shape Christian life. Children in church need to see the church as a consistent and intentional community built upon faith in Jesus Christ and enhanced by genuine friendship and love. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to share the joys of developing community and friendship with children at McIvor. My wife, Lisa, is my greatest helper and friend, and my international upbringing provides me a unique perspective on building community and its value.
Other Interests: bad jokes, foreign films, spicy food, and science fiction.
Areas of Leadership at McIvor Church: Children’s ministry, Family ministry, and Junior Youth.

Bonnie Bell

Office Administrator
Tel: (204) 339-1691

Bio: I am the mother of two young men, Nelson and Marshal. I enjoy getting to know people on a deeper level, value genuine friendships, and love nothing more than a good heart-to-heart conversation. I’m passionate about my faith and can see God’s hand in my life through all the paths I’ve walked, whether stormy or sunny.
My role at McIvor: I am a creative person and am very excited that, on top of my administrative duties, I can use these giftings. I also enjoy serving and treasure the connections with people I’m making here.
Other interests: Live theatre, opera, dancing, board games, roller coasters, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, camping, and, I must confess, reality cooking shows.

Rob Kessler

Facility Manager
Tel: (204) 339-1691

I am a husband to Debbie, and father to Michael. I believe God has led me to this place to make a difference in others lives through a clean, safe and friendly environment. I am a people person, with a servant’s heart, and enjoy engaging with all who come through McIvor’s doors. I am so blessed that God has empowered me to serve this community in this capacity.
After many years of playing sports, I now enjoy watching football, hockey and baseball. Travelling and camping are 2 of my greatest interests.
