Rev. Stephen Iverson:
Stephen is a second generation Ordained Minister who in his youth was adamant that he was never going to follow in his father’s footsteps. Thus following his high school graduation from Campbell Collegiate in Regina, Saskatchewan, Stephen quickly devised a successful venture into farming with his grandfather, working at the Beer Store, and playing as many sports as possible.
Upon the completion of his B.A. degree from Laurentian University in Sudbury and M. Div. from Emmanuel College, University of Toronto, Stephen has served both multi-point rural and urban congregations in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, St. Thomas, Toronto, Oakville, and now Brantford.
A leader who is passionate about sharing the relevance of the collected stories of faith with life today, Stephen has been able to offer congregations and communities the opportunity to reconnect with the call to hear, live, and share the Good News in ways that make sense within the context of our current culture and community.
Stephen has also provided leadership to the wider church by chairing numerous presbytery committees, as Chair of the Gathering Advisory Board that oversees the production of the respected Worship Resource magazine, Gathering, a member of the national Worship and Liturgy Group of the General Council of the United Church of Canada, and a General Council of the United Church representative.
