Perry was appointed to our faith community on November 1st of 2015 by Bishop Bob Bennett. He will be our Transitional Minister and Parish Priest for a two year period. Perry is excited about this Transitional time seeing it as an opportunity for growth for the people of St. Johns’. He looks to give people permission to claim renewed ownership of the mission and ministry of their church. This “in between” time offers the opportunity for people to talk about the past, look at the present and Dream & Vision for the future.
Perry’s 29 years of ordained ministry and six years as a Congregational Coach (three years as Archdeacon of Coaching) enables him to bring some gifts and skills with him to the St. John’s community.
Perry and his wife, Lore, along with his four children (one is in university) are slowly setting into life in Kitchener.
