elders

The elders are prayerfully elected by the congregation for three-year terms.

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).

  • Scott grew up primarily in Baptist Churches and started attending the Church of Christ shortly after her and his wife, Stacey, had moved to Victoria.  Together, they have two wonderful children, Parker and Anna.  Scott and his family feel blessed to be a part of this congregation and hope to continue to serve.

  • 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 served as the principal of a DL school called RCOA which supports those families schooling at home, while Carolyn currently 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. 

  • Jordan grew up attending Shelbourne Street Church and while attending school in Vancouver he met his wife, Cherie, by plugging into the group of friends over there that he had met at Spruston. Jordan and Cherie have 3 kids and they desire to serve the Church community they call home.

  • 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.

  • JR and his family are long-time members who feel blessed to belong to the Shelbourne Street Church family.

  • 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. 

    Daniel will be on sabbatical May 19-July 7, 2019.
