meet the people
So just who are those people at the front of the church, leading the programs and behind the scenes?
Kathy supports and encourages those who need someone in their corner. She connects with people of all ages in our community and loves to spoil her grandsons. An avid mystery-lover (think CSI and NCIS), Kathy is an accomplished knitter and loves to cook. She dreams of returning to West Bengal, India, especially if she can travel during our Canadian winter.

Kevin works with youth and young adults, encouraging them to become role models, disciple-makers and leaders. He loves teaching and engaging people where they are, inviting them to get to know Jesus on their terms. Kevin likes sci-fi, Kit Kats bars and the Blue Jays (the team, not the bird). He dislikes all things winter as it interferes with his need to play ball as often as possible.
Heather works with the kids and youth at Bedford Baptist, helping to create a safe place for them to hang out, ask questions, discover their faith, and share their lives with others. Heather is an enthusiastic fan of life and people and loves talking, laughing, yelling, fudge, her husband, Josh and her super cute kiddos (in no particular order). She does not enjoy being outdoors or sitting for more than twenty minutes.
Pastor: Heather Mitton

David is the newest member of our pastoral team. He is helping us teach and care for our growing community. David summers at his cottage in NB and likes to swim. A former hockey player himself, he can be found enthusiastically spectating his grandchildren’s team sports. Like to chat about your most recent reads? David reads theology books and mysteries.

Music Director: Lianne Dimock
Key words: communicator, musician, educator, helper, friend
Lianne’s got music in her soul and she has turned it into her hobby, her job and a joy she shares with others. With a smile on her face, she challenges her choristers to do their personal best. When she’s not at the church you’ll find this proud Mom of three spending time with her kids, most likely in a sub-zero rink. Music and hockey are two topics that are sure to get Lianne talking!
Peter is the office administrator. He's probably the first person you see and the first voice you hear. He makes things happen. A sci-fi guy, Peter's a big fan of all things Marvel and DC. When he's not ensconced behind his cozy desk you might find him performing his self-appointed duties as chief cook and bottle washer for the Metcalfe clan or catching a game on TV.
