Minister – Steve Baldry
Steve Baldry was born and raised in Peterborough, the youngest of 6 children. Before coming to MacNab, Steve served at Philpott Memorial Church and Chedoke Presbyterian Church – both here in Hamilton. He has worked as a Youth Pastor, Christian Education Director, Associate Minister and Senior Minister. His education includes a Masters of Divinity from Tyndale University College, and a Masters of Theological Studies from Knox College. He was ordained in 1985.
Steve is the author of “Rappin’ Up the Bible” – a DVD educational tool for the young and young at heart that summarizes the entire Biblical narrative in an easy to remember rhyme (rap). To preview the Life of Jesus portion of Rappin’ Up The Bible on You Tube, click here or press the arrow below.
Steve was identified by the Search Committee as having three priority skills ideally suited to MacNab at this time: preaching, pastoral care and a proven track record at connecting with a younger demographic.
He is married to Andrea, and their 4 children range in age from 19-27. He enjoys jogging, biking, camping, and just about anything else that involves fresh air.
Steve started at MacNab after the Labour Day weekend on September 8, 2015.
Steve’s appointment was approved by our Hamilton Presbytery on July 15, 2015 and he was inducted on Sunday, September 13, 2015 @ 3:00pm at MacNab.
Children’s and Youth Ministry – Michelle Winger
Hi there, my name is Michelle Winger. I’m 23 years old, and I’m from Listowel, Ontario. I come from a family of four, with one sister who currently lives in BC. I’m a fourth year student at Redeemer University with a double-major in Youth Ministry and Psychology. I moved to Hamilton in May of 2016, when some roommates and I decided to join a movement called ‘MoveIn’ which involves intentional, gospel-focused living in areas of the unreached, urban poor. I enjoy playing guitar and singing, reading a good book, and I love having coffee and chats with friends.
