Our Staff Team
Dan joined Jericho Road Church with the vision and drive to improve upon our Non-Profit Organization, and focused on developing the organization with experience and integrity.
Mike & his wife Carol came to Jericho Road initially for Mike to serve as Interim Pastor in December 2018 but was appointed permanent Senior pastor in September 2019. Originally from the northeast of England (Yorkshire), they have also lived in the US for 20 years before coming to Port Alberni. Married in 1979, they have three children and five grand-children. Mike enjoys golf, working out, reading, watching soccer and relaxing at the beach.
Youth & Worship Pastor
Dan is excited to be part of the Jericho Road family for almost 3 years. He has returned here to Port Alberni to serve in different areas of the church and community, mostly in the areas of youth ministry and music. Usually you can find Dan with a good cup of coffee in hand, or trying to convince himself the Canucks are still a good hockey team (at least on the Playstation!), or trying to enjoy the outdoors and take his family on a hike!
Sarah, her husband Gordon and daughter Pallas returned to the Alberni Valley in 2009 to pursue entrepreneurship & live near family. During that time, they operated Gramma’s Trunk, GT Vintage Parlour, THE PLACE & currently Adorn Atelier, Sarah Williams Official and Revolved Furniture & Woodworking. Other than the visual arts, creative endeavors & spirituality, Sarah also has a passion for plant-based nutrition, biking & running.

Our Council Members
I was born and raised in southern Ontario. I moved to B.C. at age 19 to get more acquainted with my intended (Frank). We have enjoyed 42 years of marriage and we are still learning the art of sharing our lives. We are blessed with three children, Jocelyn, Rachel and Nic and they have given us six wonderful grandchildren.
I'm interested in event planning, gardening, sewing, music & theatre, practicing hospitality and (God willing), travelling more of this awesome planet.
We are pleased to be a part of Jericho Road's unique ministry and hope to make available our giftings to help build up the body and reach out to our community.
I am number 17 out of 18 children with 5 girls and 13 boys. We are mostly one to two years apart in birth. I became a Christian at the age of 24 while travelling in New Zealand and searching for the meaning and purpose of life. I joined an organization called 'Youth with a Mission', that had a huge influence in my early years.
I met Audrey in Scotland while serving with 'Youth with a Mission'. We corresponded by letter for two years, then got engaged here in Port Alberni. After living and serving with the church in Tahsis for 20 years, we moved to Maple Ridge for 16 years and now we are back to where it all started.
I grew up on a farm in North Yorkshire and married Mike in 1979. We have three children and five grandchildren who still live in the US. I work part-time as a Chaplain and Relational coach online with a company in Austin, Texas.
I enjoy decorating, writing, painting, and growing flowers.
I like helping people grow in their human relationships but also in their identity and purpose as a child of God.
Life certainly has been a wonderful adventure and continues to unfold at Jericho Road.
