MELDON LUTZER

I am thankful that I was raised in a Christian home in Regina Saskatchewan, where the Word of God, prayer and church involvement were a major part of our lives.I gave my heart to Jesus when I was quite young and baptized as a believer in Christ at age 15.  Our family was very involved in our local church.  If the doors were open, it seemed we were there!  We were privledged to be under the ministry of very powerful preaching of God’s Word, in a vibrant church.

 In my first year in college I sensed God calling me into full time ministry.   In the fall of 1990, I began serving in full time ministry and met a young beautiful woman, by now wife, Charlotte. We were married in1994 and have two beautiful children, Clarise and Nate.

It was clear that the Lord was leading us to plant a Christ-centered Church in Kelowna and He led us to partner up with Harvest Bible Chapel Oakville in 2013. We are expectant that God will do far more abundantly in Kelowna than we could ever ask or imagine as we seek to fulfill the mission he has given us.

In Ephesians 5:25 we read that, “Jesus Christ loved the church and gave himself for it”. I am humbled daily by the love and sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for me on the Cross and count it a great honour to be able to serve and be a part of helping to build His Church!  Our family is excited to be a part of Harvest Bible Chapel and are praying and trusting the Lord for great things for the city of Kelowna.
