Our preaching minister is Mike Burns, Born in Fredericton NB in the last century. His early years were filled with sports of every kind, you name it he played it. With the attention span of a beagle he would find himself where ever the most interesting things were happening. This was both bad and good. Bad in that he tended to find himself in some sort of trouble but good in that he now has a great deal of interesting stories to tell. His mom played the largest part in his hearing about Christ. She would haul him to church and Sunday School every week to give him every opportunity to hear about Christ. At the age of 21 he was baptized into Christ at Central Christian Church, in Charlottetown while he was studying at Maritime Christian College. Three years later he was married to his wife Jana, and the two of them have a daughter. Mike has worked in ministry since 1992 where he started as a part time youth minister, then for a short time he served as full time preacher with Montague Church of Christ. He has been with Cornwall Christian Church since 2003. If it could be said that Mike had a favorite verse it would be Galatians 2:20 “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” If you would like to contact Mike by email click here.
David Marshall, our Director of Worship, originally hails from Digby, Nova Scotia but moved to PEI in 2001 to pursue his Bachelor of Arts Degree at Maritime Christian College. David was raised by Christian parents and the church has always been a big part of his life. He spent most of his younger years singing and playing instruments in the local church and really developed a love, not only for the local church, but for the ministry of worship as well. Music has always been such a big part of David’s life and he loves to have the opportunity to play and sing his heart out for God. When David is leading the congregation in worship he, first and foremost, immerses himself in worship. When that happens people really sense God’s presence and they come and join in. There is nothing quite like having that genuine experience with God and with other people, it is amazing. He strives to bring people closer to Christ through the worship services at Cornwall Christian and he desires to lead people to a more authentic and intimate relationship with their creator. David currently resides in Cornwall with his Wife Anna and his three sons, Cooper, Hudson and Oliver. They are also loved by their Yellow Labrador, Bella. One of David’s favourite passages from the Bible is Psalm 91:14-16: The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.”
Our Children’s/Youth Pastor and Office Administrator is Megan Davies. She graduated from Maritime Christian College with a Bachelor of Arts in Bible in 2016. She has been actively working with youth and children since 2012 while leading a youth ministry at Central Christian Church and as staff at Canoe Cove Christian Camp. She has been serving with Cornwall since 2013 in various roles. Megan’s passion is to teach children about the love that Christ has for them, and to show them what a relationship with Jesus looks like. She believes that leading by example is key in a child’s life; monkey see, monkey do. If children are to live a life dedicated to living out God’s will then they need to see lives dedicated to living out God’s will. It is her desire that the children of Cornwall Christian Church will grow up surrounded by people that love and care for them, and will come alongside them as they seek to find their identities in Christ so that one day, they will become the leaders and servants of the church, impacting more lives for Christ then we ever could have imagined! One of Megan’s favourite bible verses is 1 John 4:10, “This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.”
