June 3, 2013 — Congratulations to six  pastors who passed the CBWC’s Ordination Examining Committee at the end of May.  They were welcomed by delegates at The Gathering, the CBWC’s biennial assembly in Calgary, May 30 – June 1, 2013.

The following pastors are now eligible for ordination at their home churches:

Edgar Unrau of Calvary Baptist, Chemainus, BC
Amanda Hecht of Faith Community, Wakaw, SK
Eijiro Campo of First Baptist, Calgary, AB
Ceu Hrin of Vancouver Chin Baptist, Vancouver, BC
Cung Bawi Thawng of Vancouver Chin Baptist, Vancouver, BC
David Jenkins of Kitsilano Christian Community, Vancouver, BC

Examiniers commented on the theological depth and spiritual maturity of each of the candidates and believe them to be very worthy of ordination.  Congratulations!

Twelve pastors who passed  OEC in 2012 were also welcomed. Five pastors had their prior ordination recognized.

We would like to thank Dr. Axel Schoeber for guiding the candidates through the ordination process, as well as the members of the Ordination Examining Committee who did such a thorough yet gentle job of examining these candidates for ordination.
