Rev. John Paeng
Pastor John and his wife Gloria love living on Vancouver Island! But, they love sharing their faith and their life with the congregation of St. Columba even more! John is a graduate of Regent College (MDiv) and New England Conservatory (MM, Voice) and has been pastoring churches since 1996. Over the years he has been a missionary in Central Asia, campus student ministry organizer in Vancouver, and guest preaching at various retreats and conferences. Gloria and John love the outdoors and enjoy hiking and exploring the Island whenever they can. They have two daughters.
Charlene and her family have lived in Parksville for 10 years. When she isn’t in the office keeping things running smoothly, you are likely to find her in her garden or out exploring the island and geocaching. She is married to Dan and has two children in university.
Edith came to Parksville from Winnipeg in 1995, trading the vast prairies for the open ocean waters. In 2000 she took the position of church organist and has been helping to lead the congregation in worship each weekend ever since. Edith loves dogs (especially her Softcoated Wheaten) and has even worked them in various shows over the years.
