Lead Pastors


Craig & Shanda

“Shanda and I first met at Horizon Church when I came to Pacific Life Bible College and Shanda was attending our school, Regent Christian Academy. We were married here in 1992 and were sent out in 1995 to assist in a church in Campbell River. We were there for 7 years and our three daughters, Alexandra, Anika, and Alaina were all born there. We then spent a wonderful season as Associate Pastors at Northgate Foursquare Church in Courtenay (2002-2010).

When we moved on from there we returned to Horizon and were in a transition season for a couple of years as we prayerfully considered our next steps. In 2012, there began a transition of leadership from Pastor Steve and Becky to us, which culminated with us becoming Lead Pastors in September 2014. We love doing life and ministry together as a couple and family. Our greatest joy is inspiring, equipping, and empowering people to life transformation through the freedom and purpose found in Jesus.”
