Red tropical orchidThe CBWC is saddened to learn of the death of Rev. Jack Farr on Monday, January 14, 2013 in Ladysmith.  We rejoice that he is now with God in heaven.

Jack was one of the CBWC’s longest serving pastors. His service began in Vancouver where he served as pastor at Grandview Calvary Baptist until 1969.  He then moved to Calgary to serve at Crescent Heights Baptist from 1969 to 1975.  Jack served as the Manitoba Area Minister from 1975-80 for the Baptist Union of Western Canada (now known as the CBWC) and  then served as the Stewardship Director for the Baptist Union Development Fund.  He then returned to front-line pastoral ministry to serve at First Baptist, Vancouver from 1988 to 1993.  He was pastor at Calvary Baptist in Chemainus from 1993 to 1995.  His last appointment was serving as interim pastor at Emmanuel Baptist in Victoria in 2005.

Please pray for his wife Catherine as she mourns Jack’s loss.

Jack’s  memorial service will be held on Friday, January 18th at 2pm at Calvary Baptist, Chemainus.  Calvary Baptist is located at 3318 River Rd. in Chemainus.
