Reverend Justin-Robert Mabiala Kenzo St-Lawrence District Superintendent
Born in Congo, Reverend Justin-Robert Mabiala Kenzo converted in March 1976. He was involved for a long time in the Congolese Church and started his theological studies there before he came to Canada for the first time, in 1983, to pursue his theological studies at the master’s degree. After that, he went back to Congo for eight years before moving to the United States to complete his PHD. After that, he taught for a few years at Canadian Theological Seminary, then at Ambrose University, while also being rector at the Faculté de Théologie évangélique de Boma, in Congo. In 2011, he became the national president of the Christian and Missionary Alliance in Congo. He came back to Canada in 2017, this time in the Province of Quebec, to fill the position of Superintendent of the St-Lawrence District of the Christian and Missionnary Alliance in Canada, position that he holds to this day, while also teaching at ETEQ and Ambrose University. Reverend Kenzo is married to Lilette Lau Kenzo and they have five children.
Greg Ramsden, Sherwood Park Alliance Church
Did you know I love changing my office configuration around…frequently? Or that I can wiggle my ears? Or that I met my wife Jaci at Camp Chamisall in grade 9? It’s all true. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Music (2005) and love being on the staff at Sherwood Park Alliance since 2013. Jaci and I have been married since 2002 and we have three kiddos. I typically design weekend services and help collaborate ministries together to achieve them. I love creating gatherings where people can experience God through the art, music, creativity and humour. I am probably most moved when we these moments happen in a diverse group together. I’m honoured to be involved at Prayer Retreat 2019. I hope the team and I will point the way to Jesus and then get out of the way. I can’t wait to be together will all of you in November.
