Heins Schartner

Co-lead Pastor: German Service

Rosy and I arrived in Abbotsford in January 8, 2016 and I officially started my pastoral ministry on January 15, 2006.

We got married in June 13, 1981. God has blessed us with two beautiful daughters. Cecilia is married to Leonardo Pauls and God has blessed them also with two daughters: Julia and Kayla. Daisy is married to Dan Penner, and to make things fair they also have two daughters: Sophie and Riley.

In my free time I love to spend time with my wife Rosy. Doing things at home or going places together gives me joy. I absolutely enjoy getting together with my family. I have also learned to enjoy some golfing! I enjoy nature and a lucky golf shot!

I do not have a favorite verse. God’s Word is so rich and meaningful in its diversity! But I wish that we all would be speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. (Ephesians 4:15)
