At Home

Gary & Roxanne Andrews // Cornerstone (St. John’s, NL)

St. John’s is the largest city in Newfoundland & Labrador with a population of over 219,000 (as of July 1, 2017). In addition to being the province’s capital and commercial centre, St. John’s has become the hub of the province’s oil industry. Unfortunately, with financial prosperity to some, comes poverty and desperation to others. Cornerstone is seeking to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of every financial status who make the inner city of St. John’s their home. Gary and Roxanne, along with their children, Katie and Matthew, have been serving at Cornerstone for several years, and continue to reach out to people with the love of Christ in practical ways, such as through Supperbowl, which feeds 80-100 people every Saturday evening.

Jason & Elizabeth Burge // Placentia

Placentia, centres a number of communities on the Placentia Bay portion of the Avalon Peninsula with a combined population of close to 10,000 people. This is the only PAONL assembly south of the Trans Canada Highway on the Avalon Peninsula.  Jason and Elizabeth are involved in various areas of ministry such as youth group, children’s after school program, adult small group, and women’s ministries, along with a children’s church program, which they recently launched. They now average 20 per on a Sunday and are trusting the Lord for greater things to come.

Clarence (Junior) & Ivy Andrews //Nain, Labrador

Clarence, more commonly known as Junior, and Ivy serve the largest community and the largest centre for the Inuit nation on the coast of Labrador.  Nain is also the most northernly community in our province, approximately 25 km’s north of the Voisey’s Bay mine site.  Its mixture of cultures, social issues, and religious traditions make it a challenging area for ministry.

Ryan and Ashley Ball & Courtney and Ryan O’Reilly // Rocky Harbour

Ryan and Ashley Ball, along with their little girl Allie, is pastoring Gros Morne Community Church (formally Maranatha Pentecostal Church), which has been ministering to the Rocky Harbour area for over 30 years. Rocky Harbour (pop. 947) is a growing, vibrant community on the beautiful, scenic Northern Peninsula. The main industry in this area is tourism and also services neighbouring communities inside Gros Morne.  It is their vision there to conduct current ministries in these communities, with Rocky Harbour being our host church, and other satellite churches planted throughout Gros Morne.

In 2017, GMCC welcomed Pastor Courtney O’Reilly and her family into the Rocky Harbour assembly and is now working alongside Pastor Ryan and his family to continue to grow their ministry presence along the Northern Peninsula. Please remember to keep this assembly in your prayers, as the ministry opportunities in this area of our province are incredible.
