After a considerable process of prayer and discernment, the executive board of the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches (CCMBC) has appointed Willy Reimer to the position of executive director.
Reimer is well-known throughout the Canadian MB community as he has provided leadership in a variety of capacities, including that of moderator from 2006–2008, and, in the last few years, through leadership coaching for pastors and churches in the conference.
Reimer is founding pastor of SunWest Christian Fellowship (MB) in Calgary and has served as lead pastor for the last 15 years. Having transitioned through several meeting places, the church now worships in multiple satellite venues. Through an arrangement with SunWest, Reimer will continue to use his gifts and passions in the areas of leadership, vision, strategy, and occasional preaching.
Willy Reimer will begin his position immediately in a one-third-time capacity, expanding into full-time during late summer. Another CCMBC office will be established in Calgary.
The executive board appreciates your prayers for Willy and his family, the conference, and SunWest church as these transitions are implemented.
