Full-Time Ministers – Revs Curtis and Elaine Wilson
Sharing this ministry are Curtis and Elaine Wilson.
Rev. Curtis Wilson
Curtis grew up in the Church and is the son of a pastor. Although raised in the Christian faith, his relationship with Jesus really deepened at sixteen in a powerful revelation that Jesus’ death was meant for him (and for all of us!). From that point on he’s sought after God’s leading over his life. He grew up in Richmond, BC, and pastored in Kingston, ON, before being called to St. Giles’.
If there’s one thing he could let every person know about Jesus it’s this: Because of Jesus’ life, ministry, death, resurrection, and ascension, reality is much more hopeful than it appears.
He loves playing guitar, making YouTube videos, and drinking coffee.
Rev. Elaine Wilson – Currently on Leave
Elaine grew up in an ethnic Baptist church in Vancouver, always finding herself drawn to serve in various leadership roles within the church even as a youth. She joined the Presbyterian church in her undergraduate years and served in even more leadership roles there. While working in research science, she felt led to study as a lay person at Regent College. From there, the path was slowly laid out to lead her towards ordination within The Presbyterian Church in Canada. She has previously served at Strathcona Park Presbyterian in Kingston, Ontario and has been serving at St. Giles’ since 2022.
She has a pastoral heart and a love of exegetical preaching.
In her spare time, you can find her chasing their kids and dog, baking, and attempting to learn to sew.
