elders

They are stewards of the vision God has given our Church family, and oversee our spiritual health and well-being.

Contact them any time for confidential prayer or counselling, to seek spiritual growth,or to discuss membership.

 

  • Dan Hickman's philosophy of shepherding a church, is fostering respect and safety. Like his wife of 36 years, Fay, he grew up in the Churches of Christ and has always been involved with church activities from an early age. He is a registered hearing practitioner and helps several people a day improve their hearing impairment. (Dan was born the day Disneyland first opened, also the year portable transistor radios were first sold and Lego was invented).

  • Mark and and his wife, Carolyn come from diverse backgrounds, but the Lord has wonderfully brought them together. Between them they have eight children and six grandchildren to love and to enjoy. Mark serves as the principal of a DL school called RCOA which supports those families schooling at home, while Carolyn acts as the business manager. Their hearts are to encourage this fellowship and for themselves to walk in relationship with each other and to continually grow in the knowledge and grace of our Lord Jesus. 

  • Steve grew up at the Shelbourne Street Church of Christ and has also been privileged to raise his own children and watch them grow up within this fellowship. He and his wife, Joan, have been blessed with five children and eight grandchildren, and have endeavoured to bless others through their work with Zambia Mission Fund Canada. Joan is the deacon of foreign missions and is passionate about bringing education, healthcare and God’s love to the people of Zambia. Thankfully, the nature of his duties at his family excavating company allows Steve the leeway to step away from everything here, and travel with her to Zambia each year to serve wherever they are needed. They both love the Lord and His Word dearly, and they desire to do whatever work the Lord requires of them.

  • Alan has been at Shelbourne Street since 1988, serving as a deacon from 1991 to 2004, and then as an elder (2004-2007). Father to Brian, he was widowed when his wife, Lyn, went to be with the Lord, and in the fall of 2017, married Carolina. He currently co-leads a weekly LIFE group.

  • Ian and his wife, Shannon, are both native Islanders, Ian born and raised in Victoria, and Shannon in Nanaimo. They have been members of the Shelbourne Street Church since the early eighties and together they have raised, and continue to raise - 4 children - Tami (married), Trevor (married), Jordan and Brandon, and have three grandchildren - so far! Ian is has a love for singing and worship, and is an occasional worship leader at Shelbourne St. Shannon has been actively involved on the board of Spruston Road Bible Camp for many years.

  • travis hutchinson

    SENIOR MINISTER

    Travis and Nicole and their three children, Raegan, Clay and Mollee, joined our congregation at the end of September 2012. They have since added two little girls, Quinn and Emery, to the family. A native of Denver, Colorado, Travis has lived in Texas, Washington, and Indiana. He grew up a part of the Littleton Church, began his journey with Christ as a sixteen year old, and felt the calling to pursue ministry when he went to college. He can be easily persuaded to try just about any hobby, but particularly enjoys his Jeep (build it, break it, fix it, repeat), hiking, geocaching, working on computers, and attempting to play guitar. 

  • daniel patstone

    ASSOCIATE MINISTER

    Daniel and Kate and their two sons, Caleb and Matthew, have been attending SSCOC since November, 2009. Daniel has a heart for worship and a passion for playing music, and in July 2010 took on the position of Worship Minister. His ministry focus was expanded to Associate Minister in January 2011, and he accepted the position of lead coordinator for family ministry in September 2017. Through worship and praise he longs to see the body of Christ draw near to the heart of God and find encouragement and strength in the Lord's presence.

  • Monique was born and raised in South Africa. She then lived in London, England before moving to Victoria and getting married. On her first weekend after arriving in Canada, she visited Shelbourne Street Church of Christ and loved it so much she has been a member ever since. Baptised by Martin Moore, the pastor in 2004, she has been the secretary since April 2007.

  • Angela Jordan

    CUSTODIAN

    Angela and Eton and their children, Aiden, Emma (and later arrival, Liam), began attending SSCOC in the summer of 2010 and have called it home ever since. Angela has a passion for the SSCOC and has enjoyed serving the church in any way possible, including on the worship team. Angela and Eton love fellowship and enjoy having friends and family over to their house at any opportunity. Angela joined the staff as custodian in November 2013 and loves serving the church and its body in this manner.
