George Zhao

Mandarin Pastor

George joined the Hebron staff team in October 2015 when he started leading the Mandarin Ministry at Hebron. Since that time the ministry has grown substantially and continues to see lives changed by the Gospel everyday. In September 2016 George was examined and ordained as a Commissioned Pastor in the Christian Reformed Church. It has been a joy to work with George and his wife Janice, and we pray that God continues to bless their ministry.

Daniel LeForestier

Worship Pastor

Daniel is the Hebron Church Worship Pastor and is responsible for both overseeing and directing the worship environment at Hebron. Daniel is very gifted as a musician and vocalist, and seeks to use those God-given talents to help lead others in worship as they encounter God. As we seek to be a Church of passionate disciples that makes passionate disciples worship is an essential component in the life of all disciples of Jesus. It is worship–encountering the living God in a manner that elicits praise for him–that transforms us. It is Daniel’s prayer that you would encounter God in this way.

Judy Uden

Office Administrator

Judy is very administratively gifted and is an essential asset to the Hebron team. If there is something going on with regard to the facilities or events at Hebron chances are Judy knows and is intimately involved in its planning. Often good administration can go unnoticed because we don’t notice administration till it goes bad. But here at Hebron we recognize that smoothness is because Judy has been working hard.

governance

Hebron Church is governed by members of the Congregation who have been elected to either the office of Elder or Deacon. In order to enable Elders and Deacons to flourish in their offices, Hebron has differentiated the tasks of these Elders and Deacons. Though the tasks may differ, the honour does not, and so there is no hierarchy in these offices.

Hebron Council is composed of Administrative Elders, Administrative Deacons, Pastoral Elders and Community Partner Deacons.

Board of Administration

The Board of Administration is composed of three Administrative Elders and two Administrative Deacons. As the name suggests, BoA is the administrative wing of Governance of the Hebron Council. The Council has given authority to BoA to act on their behalf as directors of Hebron Church.

Pastoral Elders

The Elders of Hebron Church are to oversee the doctrine and life of the members of Hebron Church, as well as fellow office bearers. They shall exercise admonition and discipline, along with pastoral care in the congregation, as well as participate and promote evangelism and defence of the faith. The Elders shall further nurture in the congregation grateful and obedient participation in the Lord’s Supper through encouragement, instruction, and accountability.

The Pastoral Elders lead and govern the activity of the Hebron Care team. The Hebron Care team seeks to provide care, support, prayer, and Gospel love to those in the Congregation.

Community Partner Deacons

The Deacons of Hebron Church shall represent and administer the mercy of Christ to all people, especially those who belong to the community of believers. They shall also stimulate the members of Hebron Church to faithful, obedient stewardship of their resources on behalf of the needy. This is to be done with words of Biblical encouragement and testimony which assures the unity of both word and deed.

In our ministries of mercy, Hebron Church partners with both local and global organizations. Community Partner Deacons are champions for these organizations within the congregation by speaking up for their needs, celebrating their great work and leading the congregation in support for them.
