Leadership and Staff
Larry Teeple (Elder)
Larry is the longest serving of the elders and yet
somehow has managed to remain calm and steady throughout the
years. He serves wherever he is needed: sometimes visibly
and often working quietly in the background. When not
serving the church, he can be found helping people breathe
at University Hospital. Larry loves his wife, Cheryl, as
well as his four grown-and-married children, their spouses
and his six grandchildren; but as deep as that love is,
Larry loves Jesus and His Kingdom even more.
Steve Levitt (Elder & Sunday School Warden)
In 2003 Steve became convinced that his family should
worship in the same town where they live. So he, his wife
Kerry, and their three children pulled up roots at a much
larger church to come and serve the body at Elim. In
addition to running a growing business from their home,
Steve makes time to be involved in many different aspects of
ministry at Elim, but says that the men's Bible study group
and the Sunday school ministry are where Jesus blesses him
most. His family's favourite vacation spot is Joy Bible Camp
Ian Teetzel (Deacon Secretary)
Ian is husband to Brianne and a
father of four daughters. When not farming (and sometimes
during) he enjoys researching a wide variety of subjects on the
internet and has a working knowledge of many topics. He
can be found playing drums or guitar on Sunday, welcoming people
into his home for visits or taking notes at the deacons'
meeting. If you need some research done on any topic, Ian
is your man.

Ralph Jennings (Deacon)
Ralph is married to his wife Heather and
together have a daughter and son. They were married at Elim
and have served in several different ways. Ralph prefers a
quiet, simple life and can be found on the golf course or
driving his 70 Monte Carlo around the area. He also prefers
serving quietly and behind the scenes.
Pamela Kaczmarczyk (Chapel Aministrator)
Pamela is happily married to her husband Kevin and
mother to three children, one son and two daughters.
Although she has a busy schedule, Pam loves the simple
things in life such as gardening, painting, and a good cup of coffee.
When not serving at the church, she is busy operating
switchboard and admitting patients at a major local hospital. Pam loves talking to people and
tries to share the love of Christ through kind and caring interactions.
George and Ruth Chaffe (Custodians)
George and Ruth have kept our church impeccably clean
for years now. When not cleaning the church, they enjoy
being with their family. George also enjoys playing golf,
spending time with God at his hunt camp and volunteering in
the community. Ruth is often occupied by quilting and making
