|Salmon Arm Church of Christ
Our Teachers/ Deacon
Doug Kendig --
Doug and his wife, Linda, can best be described as "grounded in the Word." Faithfulness to the Lord's calling has led him from Oregon, to Alberta, and gratefully to British Columbia.
Parents of three children and currently raising two of their five grandchildren, Doug and Linda's treasure is children.
Doug, as principle, and Linda, as a master teacher, were involved with Shuswap Christian School from 1985 to it's closing in 2002.
Doug's role is deacon and Linda's work as Sunday School teacher have extended their gifts of caring, love, knowledge and faithfulness to both our church family and the Salmon Arm community.
Gordon Parmenter --
Maurice Taylor -- July 10, 2019, passed on to meet his Savior. He is greatly missed in the Lord's service!
Maurice was born in England and immigrated to BC with his family when he was six. Marie was born and raised in BC. They have seven adult children and many more "children" who call them mom and dad.
Maurice was a trained psychiatric nurse, but has mostly been self-employed alongside his friend and wife Marie in family owned businesses. They moved from BC to Saskatchewan in 1979 where they worked with Western Christian College. This was a time of joy in their lives as they opened their home and their hearts to share their love of Jesus with teens and young adults.
They first moved to Salmon Arm in 1993, although their travels have taken them to live in Yellowknife and Edmonton and finally back to Salmon Arm in 2007. They have been an integral part of our congregation ever since.
Maurice and Marie have an open door policy and have been faithful in showing hospitality and sharing all that they have with others. You will always find a hot pot of tea on the table or a pot of soup on the stove to be shared. God has gifted this couple with a love for the lost and a love for those often overlooked by others.
