Family: Karly; 4 children – Flora, Wilson, Oliver, Lucy
On ministry: I am passionate about the church because we are the blood-bought people of God (Acts 20:28). The gravity of this is immeasurable: I want to see all peoples glorify and worship God as Christ gathers people to himself through the proclamation and transformation of the gospel.

Mario Buscio

Title & congregation: pastor, Christian Centre Fellowship, Thompson, Man.
Start: March 2019
Education: MA in theology, MB Biblical Seminary, Fresno, Cal.
Previous ministry: church planter, Eglise Communautaire de la Rivière Rouge, Winnipeg; manager, Kindred Productions, CCMBC; alternative justice program coordinator, El’dad Ranch, Steinbach, Man.

On ministry: “Go and make disciples of all nations!” is the last thing that Jesus commanded us to do. There is no reason why a city like Thompson can not have over a thousand disciples. Let’s love like Jesus loved, forgive as we are forgiven, and extend grace as we are graced.
