Getting to know Geoff Part 2…the lighter side 🙂
We are pleased to introduce to you Geoff Heth, the Board’s preferred candidate for our new Lead Pastor. For the last 16 years, Geoff and his wife, Janel, have been part of a healthy church experience at RockPointe Church in Calgary, where his most recent position was Pastor of Community Engagement. Geoff has also served as the Site Pastor for their Bearspaw Extension and Adult Ministries Pastor. He has 25 years of pastoral experience and is presently in the final stage of completing his Doctor of Ministry with an emphasis in Leadership at Gordon–Conwell Theological Seminary. A great day for him would be going to a retreat centre with his journal and a Bible. Geoff loves both playing and watching sports, he likes a good work out, reading, travelling with his family, and supporting his wife’s hobbies.
Janel has served as the Worship Pastor at the Bearspaw site for the past seven years. She is currently finishing her education degree and her dream is to teach music in the public school system. Janel loves to run, play sports, camp, hike, garden, craft, and beat Geoff in a game of tennis or squash.
Geoff and Janel and have been married for 25 years and have four children they are very proud of: Madellyn, 23 years old, is in the final year of her pharmacy degree; Zachariah, 21, is currently at Minot University in his second to last year of a psychology/social work degree; Halle, 18, is presently serving with YWAM in Australia and will return in February; Rylie is 16 years old and in grade 11 in Calgary.
One of the Heths’ greatest joys in ministry is getting to work with a team of people to expand the Kingdom of God. Ephesians 4:11–14 speaks about the goal of leadership and gives the process of how a team should work together. “So Christ Himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” Geoff has said that, “Working together to build up the body of Christ and seeing the transformation and growth that come to the body of Christ is so much fun to do together.”
Geoff and Janel look forward to learning more about EFCL, the community of Lethbridge and meeting many of you, saying, “We humbly seek God’s direction as we begin this journey together.”
