main speaker -  pastor GORDON PONAK

He never could have imagined that he would be the Lead Pastor of a church, but a year after finishing high school Gordon received an unmistakable call to full-time ministry. However, after receiving a B.Th. in Pastoral Ministry from Summit College (formerly WPBC), he found himself working full time detailing cars in Chilliwack, BC. He filled a couple of Youth Interim positions before taking a position in Abbotsford, BC as a Young Adult Pastor. In 2005 he came to Fort McMurray, Alberta where he served at McMurray Gospel Assembly as the Worship Pastor for 13 years. Feeling God’s pull towards leading a church Gordon was led to Richfield Christian Fellowship in Edmonton where he has served as the Lead Pastor since 2018. He is married to Lisa, his wife of 20 years, and they have two amazing teenage children.
