Our Staff & Leadership…
Pastor AL LETKEMAN
Senior Pastor email
Pastor Al serves as the Senior Pastor at NSC. As such he guides the pastoral team, along with the church leadership, to bring spiritual oversight to the body, seeking to have NSC be a place that strives to equip God’s people to extend God’s kingdom. In this capacity he is involved in preaching, counselling & visitation, giving guidance to particular ministries along with facilitating various foreign church and mission relationships that NSC has established.
He and his lovely wife Monica have the incredible privilege of raising and journeying through life with 3 children, one daughter and 2 sons. This year they entered the world of becoming in-laws as they celebrated a family marriage.
When he’s not at church, you’ll find Pastor Al on the golf course, in a canoe, fishing, out for a jog or a skate down at the community club. If he’s not actively pursuing one of these interests he’s sitting in a rink or gym cheering on his own boys, or probably cheering on the Leafs or Riders. He also deeply enjoys sitting in his garden reading Louis L’Amour westerns, dreaming of being a cowboy. And, of course, he lives with the conviction that each of these go better with a strong cup of coffee!
Pastor ANDY PORTER
Pastor of Community Life/Evangelism email
As Pastor of Community Life and Evangelism, Andy’s role involves seeking opportunities for building community within NSC. Andy will be working with our small group leaders to give direction and encouragement. Andy will also be seeking to initiate community activities that will enrich fellowship and, well, just be good fun! Andy will seek to encourage mentoring relationships within the church. Andy will also seek to equip and encourage NSC in our role of evangelism through discussion and teaching as well as by utilizing programs like Christianity Explored.
Andy is married to Ingrid and they have four children, Jonathan, Jasmine, Joshua and Jade, as well as a dog named Pepper. Ingrid comes from Thunder Bay ON, and met Andy whilst working with a church in England. Andy and Ingrid lived and served God in England for 12 years before moving to Canada in 2003.
Andy is very interested in how he can love, enjoy and glorify God more whilst living on this planet, and encouraging others to do the same. He loves spending time with his family, walking the dog and, as much as practically possible, travelling everywhere in the city by bike. Andy enjoys attempting and watching various sports, but particularly football with a round ball. Since moving to Canada, Andy has become a keen Hockey fan and is delighted that the Winnipeg Jets have returned. Andy also loves camping with his family and appreciates being the best fisher person in his clan!
Pastor JASON FRIESEN
Pastor of Student Life/Worship email
Jason’s primary responsibilities at NSC are to lead the youth, young adult, and worship ministries. He leads a fantastic team of leaders who are committed to God’s work and caring for others. He has a passion for discipling youth and young adults and loves to see the growth they experience on their walk with Jesus. Jason believes that an important part of youth being discipled is for them to sometimes simply have fun, so he has been known to delight in the CRAZY youth events from time to time.
Jason recently married the love of his life, Nicole, who is involved in ministry in the North End of Winnipeg.
Jason is a bit of a jack of all trades in that he has so many interests and hobbies. When he gets a chance he loves to play his bass. In the summers he loves getting out to the cabin in order to relax and do some fishing. He loves driving his scooter around town. He is also a huge fan of NFL football and he counts down the days until the start of the season. He is a Colts fan through and through. Jason is also fond of going on winter camping trips.
The NSC Council cares for the spiritual life of the church, listening and responding to the needs and concerns of the congregation. If you would like to contact any of our council members they can be reached by email via the links below.
