The Ministry Council is made up of overseers who offer direction and give spiritual oversight to Hanover Missionary Church and its ministries.
Ab is semi-retired from the trout farming business though he remains involved in a consulting capacity. He has started a small hobby farm and is currently raising pygmy goats and he makes a very good housekeeper on the days his wife is working.
On a spare afternoon he would turn off the cell phone and television and devote his time to being with Faye. He also enjoys walking the dogs, reading, and his daily devotions, but his favourite thing is a well earned nap.
Ab hopes to bring common sense, a focused point of view, and a practical business outlook to his role on Ministry Council.
Ron has been attending HMC for about nine years. Though farming utilizes most of his time through the week, when he finds himself some freedom he enjoys reading, going for walks at the beach, watching a sunset, or visiting a neighbour.
Ron hopes to bring his own unique perspective in seeking God’s will for HMC, but today and in the years to come.
Prior to coming to Hanover, Derek served as an Officer in the Canadian Armed Forces for just shy of 8 years. Derek and Laurie have four married children and eight grandchildren.
Derek enjoys spending time with Laurie and his family (especially his grandchildren), reading, expanding his knowledge of dentistry, reformed theology, walking, travelling, and spending time at their place in Florida.
Her mission at the present is caring for an elderly mother and aunties. Her passion is her children and grandchildren. Jeff and Charity have four children and Julie and Alfred have two. Ron and Charlotte live in Hanover and always with one or more furry four-legged companions.
Ken works at Hallman Motors as a detailer and has farmed most of his life. They sold their farm four years ago and purchased seventeen acres of God’s creation and built their dream home. In his free time he can be found maintaining the property, including making wood for hear and exercise, going for walks and observing the birds and wildlife. His goal is to work less, read the newspaper, relax more, travel, and be more involved in the community.
Paul’s days are full with running a business but when he finds some time he likes to work in the garden, go for walks with his wife, or snowmobile in the winter.
