Associate Pastor Christian & Jenna Pye
What I do: Mainly give high fives to kids. Actually, I count it a great honour to work with the youth and young adults at Hammond Bay Church. I try to spend my time developing leaders through spiritual direction, implementing how to walk with God's presence daily, and thinking about the health and future of His Church.
Spouse/Kids: Jenna is my wife and she is fantastic. She is a brilliant person who is more beautiful, more talented, and more fun than I could ever be. We have two sons, Lachlan and Jovan, who bring incredible joy and bursts of energy to our adventures.
Wisdom or bit of advice: "If a robot did 'the robot dance,' would it still be called 'the robot dance?'... or... just 'dancing?" - Philoso-raptor
How I got involved with Hammond Bay: I came to Hammond Bay in 2011 shortly after my degree. God seemed to pave the way for me to serve here.
A few of my favorite things: God, my wife, my son, my bike, books, the outdoors, playing instruments, exercising, travelling, and coffee shops.
I like this quote: “All believers must learn the habit of inwardly redirecting thoughts toward faith, hope and love, and away from the lies that create hopelessness, fear, selfishness and ungodly priorities.” - Steve Backlund
Education: I have a Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies from Columbia Bible College.
Hope and Vision for Hammond Bay: That we continue to embrace the extravagant love of Jesus and let it flow out into our relationships.
Hometown: Nanaimo, B.C.
