Hi, welcome to my page. I will try to update this as often as I can, but I know that time often gets away on me, so I make no promises. However, I encourage everyone to check back often to see if there is something new.
For those who don't know me well, let me introduce myself. I was born in Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan and grew up on a small farm almost as far north as you can go and still farm in Saksatchewan. After High School, I attended Nipawin Bible College, graduating with a 3-year diploma in 1977. It was there that I met my wife, Val. We were married in 1978 and a year later applied to Village Missions to serve as Missionary-Pastor. We arrived on our first field in Jarvie, Alberta in October of 1979.
Over the years we have served in five different communities. We have been here at the Clive Christian Fellowship since August of 2001. It has been a wonderful 11 years, with a great group of believers. We have also found Clive to be a very friendly community to live in.
Val and I have four children. Three of them are married and have given us eight grandchildren. We are privileged to have all of them living fairly close, so we get to see our grandkids on a fairly regular basis. As I am writing this, we have four of them staying with us for the weekend. They add a lot of excitement to life.
Well, that is enough about me for now. I will try to add something to this page again before too long. If, at any time, you have some thoughts about anything I write here, feel free to make comments.
Gordon Rowland has been a Missionary-Pastor with Village Missions of Canada for over 35 years. Gordon and his wife Val have lived and served in Clive since 2001. They have four children and nine wonderful grandchildren.
