Denver Wilson

Pastor of McIvor Church
Tel: (204) 339-1691 ext. 222

I am a husband to Jannalee, and dad to twin two-year-olds, Esme and Rowan. 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.

Justin Fraser

Pastor of Worship and Sr. High Youth
Tel: (204) 339-1691 ext. 223

Bio: The combination of my passion for music and love for the church has led me to where I am today as a pastor at McIvor Church.  I’ve been able to invest in the gifts God has given me which in turn allows me to mentor and equip others so that they too can fulfill their calling.  I am married to Brittany, I’ve been privileged to tour internationally with various musical groups, and have discovered the transforming power of pour over coffee.
Other Interests: Hiking, camping, fishing, curling, and cooking
Areas of Leadership at McIvor Church: Worship Ministry and Sr. High Youth Ministry

Stefan Froese

Pastor of Family Ministries
Tel: (204) 339-1691 ext. 223

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 Keep

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 gifting’s. 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 17-year-old 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.
