Rev. Leanne Friesen
Rev. Leanne Friesen has served as our lead pastor since 2005. She is a gifted preacher and visionary and aims to make her teaching accessible to anyone, especially people who are new to faith or church. She loves to laugh, meet new people, and see how creative she can get with her “sermon activities.”
Associate Pastor of Discipleship and Missions
Leslie Makins brings her gifts of hospitality, administration and teaching to develop discipleship and missional programs that are relevant and challenging for all ages. Leslie gives 110% to all she leads to make every detail special. It’s hard to find Pastor Leslie without a smile - or a cup of coffee in her hand!
Next Generation Pastor
Sam Loaker is our Next Generation Pastor and helps our children, youth, and families connect to MHBC and learn about Jesus. He is also a gifted musician and can often be found with a guitar in his hands.
Andrew Moore oversees the administration of MHBC. He is the guy who will most likely answer the phone when you call. We are thankful that he is here to help all of us get the information, supplies and support we need. (Keep an eye on the bulletin, because he likes to insert little jokes and see if anyone notices.)
