Rev. Brian Wilkie:
"I've been part of the Saint Andrew's congregation since 2005, employed half-time with the church. During these years, I've also worked building fences and decks, installing alarm systems, offering premium consumer technical support for Dell Computers, and driven a school bus for a great bunch of kids in Orleans.
"I'm married to Erica, I have four adult children, (and now two grandchildren!) and we live in Orleans. My favourite worship song is an old camp song from the days of directing wilderness camp at Silver Lake United Church Camp in near Ripley, Ontario. It goes, 'I want to love you, Lord, much more than I do. I want to love you, Lord, much more than I do, and learn to seek your face and the wonders of your grace. I want to love you Lord.' For roughly 30 years I've been falling more and more in love with my Saviour, Jesus Christ, and am amazed that my love is still dwarfed by his."
Brian has served churches in southern Ontario (South Sauble Beach Community Church; Centennial United, Stayner; Mt. Zion-Carmel United, Morriston) prior to his ordination in 1992, and was minister at King's Point Pastoral Charge, NL from 1992-1996, associate minister for Evangelism and Leadership Development at Dominion-Chalmers United, Ottawa from 1996-2003. Brian also worked as Director for Public Policy with the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, 2003-2005.
In addition to his half-time position at Saint Andrew's Brian ministers as a host at Good News in the Morning radio show (www.GNCM.ca), and until recently served as Chair of the Board of Directors for Golden Lake Church Camp in Deacon, Ontario.
