Wherever You're Coming From, We Have a Place for You.
Our Ministry Philosophy Is Simple – We want to help you take Next Steps to discover your purpose
Everyone has a different story. Regardless of your story we believe that every single person has a God-given purpose. SunWest is a community of people who follow Jesus so they can know God, find freedom, discover their purpose, and make a difference. We refer to these items as our Core 4.
We invite you to attend Starting Point after the service to dive into the Core 4 to get you further connected to God and others. All of our energy is focused around the Core 4. Whether it’s a Weekend Service, Groups, Teams, Starting Point, our Hearing God Seminar, Set Free Weekend, or SOZO prayer ministry, it all exists to help you take Next Steps.
Starting Point will help you get connected to Groups and Teams so that you can continue to grow and is one of the primary ways people get connected. This will be the avenue that will set you up to serve in your sweet spot on a Team.
SunWest is a member of the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches. Here’s our confession of faith.

Meet the SunWest Staff
Matt enjoys breaking bones while mountain biking, spending more time making coffee than drinking it, and fights depression every year when the Raptors crash out of the NBA play-offs.
Along with his wife, Lisa and three sons, he's been serving at SunWest for over 15 years.
Before working at SunWest, Colton dabbled in Mexican wrestling and was involved in a ground breaking research project capturing swamp muskrats for eye-sight studies.
Kendall is a small and medium sized kitchen appliance connoisseur and owns a highly prized hot dog toaster. She would drink coke at every opportunity if it was healthy. I know this bio makes her sound unhealthy but she could get up and run a kilometre at a fast clip if you asked.
Weekend Experiences and Communications Pastor
Chris’s bi-vocational role on staff gives him the freedom to attend North American sporting events including NFL and NBA games. He used to love the Cleveland Indians but soured on them recently - nobody knows why.
Amanda is a fitness focused administrative wizard with a passion for stargazing, ultimate frisbee and can win a prize at almost any fair game.
Finance & Operations administrator
Sheri is a number-crunching dynamo with good fashion sense and a deep love for tropical fish. In her spare time she practices Jenga and goes on long walks with her husband Ron (who’s a professional body-builder).
“Mission is in our DNA”
Local Projects and International Mission
Reaching our community and the world
10% of SunWest's overall budget is dedicated to Missions. This includes meeting needs in our community, our country and our world in the form of church planting, leadership development and helping the poor.
SunWest teams have participated in mission work in Canada, Thailand, Dominican Republic, El Salvador and Mozambique. Our youth teams have seen over 100 houses built over SunWest’s 20 years, helping families less fortunate than ourselves in Mexico.
