Senior Pastors : Pastors Laurence & Iris Hueppelsheuser
Laurence and Iris Hueppelsheuser are our founding Pastors and have served this congregation faithfully since 1967. In the early years Laurence and Iris were instrumental in giving leadership and direction to a sovereign revival among young adults which swept many into an awakening of worship, baptism, and a new walk in the Holy Spirit. Over the years, they have built a strong foundation of worship, commitment and evangelism in the Church. As a result, many individuals have been thrust into ministry, serving God throughout Canada and the mission fields of the world. Laurence and Iris are known for their inspirational, practical, Word-based teaching and having a real Shepherd’s heart. They are moved by the broken, and desire to help people rise to be all they can be in Christ. Multitudes have been changed by God’s grace, and today we have a vibrant, multi-cultural, worshiping church family.

Dave and Linda both began attending Peoples Church in their teens but joined full time staff in September of 1980. They have served the Church in various capacities over the years and are strong teachers of the Word. Dave publishes a daily devotional web page which takes readers through the Bible in a year and Linda is the founder and director of Kids On Track Association of Alberta, an outreach to the families of the West End of our city. Their joy is to see the Church strengthened and equipped for works of service and ministry.
