Our Minister

 

Dwain

Rev. Dwain Ketcheson was called to ministry with the people of Mountainview United Church on July 1st, 2012.  Dwain came to Mountainview having served at Southminster United Church in Niagara Falls, Memorial United Church in St. Catharines, and the Wadena Pastoral Charge consisting of Wadena, Rose Valley and Archerwill United Churches in Saskatchewan.

Dwain earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Trent University in Peterborough and a Master’s Degree in Divinity from Queen’s University in Kingston; he was ordained in 1997.  Dwain continues to grow in faith through his ministry to, and with people and by attending various continuing education events.

Dwain believes that congregational life should be such that a church is not an island within its surrounding community, but rather a vital part of it.  Church therefore is not only an exciting and uplifting place to be one day a week, but rather seven days a week, as it reaches out into the community and the world through its various ministries.  It is the ministry of Mountainview to be such a church.     

Dwain believes that all people are called into ministry, and one of the greatest joys of his ministry is to, as he says, “Minister to the ministers – the people of the church and help them to discover, develop and put into action their gifts for ministry.  It is an awesome thing to see people blossom into what God created them to be!”   

Dwain lives in St. Catharines with his wife Colleen and together they have two children who are in university.  During his leisure time Dwain enjoys golfing, cycling, curling and a variety of activities with his family.
