Judy has been serving in ministry for over 12 years. Judy has worked in multiple roles and understands the importance of financial stewardship, transparency, and accountability.

 

At Siloam Mission, Judy served as the accountant, Director of Finance and Development, and Director of Major Gifts and Corporate Relations. Judy contributed to helping Siloam achieve year over year surpluses and brought stability and growth to the organization. She also helped to raise over 16M towards its MAKE ROOM capital campaign which will provide additional program and service space for people experiencing homelessness for years to come!

 

Now she is the Partner Development Coordinator at Youth for Christ Winnipeg. Her journey in life has taught her the importance of caring for people and for sharing the gospel. "Reaching youth for Christ before they start making worldly choices is the key to preventing them from falling into tough times. With God as your guide, all things are indeed possible!"

Yvonne Masella

Community Life Pastor, River's Edge Community Church

Born in Cape Town, South Africa l lived there until my early adult years with my family, one sister, and seven brothers.

I obtained my BA and Higher Teacher’s diploma from the University of Western Cape and worked as a high school teacher for four years before moving to Canada with an international missions organization.  This was the beginning of a path that moved me in a few different directions.

After five years, I pursued further training at Briercrest Seminary to obtain my Masters in Counseling with a major in Marriage and Family work. I continued my private practice and joined the teaching and counseling team of the International Pastoral Care team with Operation Mobilization.  My ministry experience shaped my desire to work with leaders with a specific focus on their inner life and healthy leadership styles.

A further step in my journey was the need to move from global involvement to the local church. I encountered River's Edge Community Church a little over 12 years ago.

I joined the pastoral team at River’s Edge in 2012 and serve in the capacity of Community Life Pastor. The responsibility involves discipleship, counseling, and spiritual formation courses.

"Serving on the CCCC board is a great opportunity for me to see excellence in board governance of a Christian organization practised in real-time. I have served on several other boards, and also am involved in teaching board governance, so it is great to see a Christian organization like the CCCC actually modelling the way in board governance and organizational leadership with excellence. It is also a way for me to give back by making a contribution to this great organization that is such a fantastic resource to Christian ministries across Canada."
