Pastor Ken Nettleton: Lead Pastor
Ken and his wife Kimberley arrived at New Life in 2014 after previously pastoring churches in Calgary, Kamloops and Vancouver. Ken’s role is to lead the congregation in their mission to declare Jesus Christ and carry on his ministry to the Cowichan Valley and beyond. Under the Elders authority, he is responsible for guiding the staff, leading the vision, teaching the Bible and equipping others to follow Jesus. Together Ken & Kimberley enjoy leading small groups and helping couples through the ups and downs of married life. In their spare time you will find them walking their dog, Bruce, in the woods, visiting with friends, learning how to garden, and reading on those cold, wet, Island evenings. Ken is also a reservist Padre with the Cdn. Forces. Their children, both recently married, live in Calgary.

Michelle has called New Life home since 2006. She has a passion for influencing children for Christ. As a small child her life was radically changed because of the influence of her Sunday School teachers on her life. It was through them that she learned of the unconditional love of the Father for his children. Michelle leads our KidZone On The Road ministry, our off campus children’s ministry and also provides front desk support during the week.
