Alliance Church has its new pastor

Comments

New Estevan Alliance Church senior pastor Rev. Jim Kedge

The Estevan Alliance Church has turned to someone familiar with the congregation to be its new senior pastor.

Rev. Jim Kedge is one of several individuals to fill in at the local Alliance Church during the past year, as the church hasn't had a senior pastor since June of 2013. He has been coming to Estevan about once a month to deliver the sermon during the church's Sunday service.

His previous experience in Estevan played a factor in his decision to fill the senior pastor vacancy.

"I got along with the people, and it seemed like the people were getting along with me," Kedge said. "It seemed like the messages were being well-received, and it felt like a really great fit."

Kedge is looking forward to preaching more often.

This will be his first assignment as a senior pastor. It will be a challenge, he said, as there are many duties that he hasn't tackled before.

"It seems like a very, very warm and welcoming congregation who, from what they tell me, will allow me to make some mistakes from time to time," said Kedge.

Not only has he had positive interactions with the congregation, but his family members have also had good interactions.

Kedge has resided in Caronport for the past year while his wife has been wrapping up her master degree in marriage and counselling. Prior to that, Kedge had worked with youth and young adults at churches in Moose Jaw and Kamloops, B.C.

He has about a dozen years of pastoral experience.
