Paul & Rose Dubois
Paul & his wife Rose both gew up in Manitoba. Paul from Winnipeg and Rose from the Interlake area. Paul and Rose have been married for 42 years and have 4 children and 8 amazing grandchildren.
They both became believers in Christ in 1980 and shortly thereafter began attending a New Church Plant in Winnipeg called Springs of Living Water Church. After working for a few years on the streets of Winnipeg with Springs Street Ministry Teams they became the Youth Pastors. They witnessed God take this small group of 12-15 young people to a place of growth and strength. Before leaving Springs in 1989 the Youth Ministry had grown to over a 100 young people.
In January of 1990 Paul & Rose along with a team of church planters planted the first Victory Church in Calgary. From there they served as Associate Pastors of the Victory Church of Brooks for 8 years. The ministry in Brooks was very successful and they saw many ministries established, especially in the area of Missions.
In 1997 they received a call to consider leading a church in Saskatchewan. Although they were not feeling the need to go, they decided they would pray about it and God began to confirm the move to their hearts. In September of 1997 they moved their family to lead Melfort Christian Fellowship Church in Melfort, which was later renamed Northeast Christian Fellowship. They have been leading and pastoring Northeast for 25 years and have seen God do many amazing things.
They continue to press in to take a hold of that of which Christ took a hold of them and firmly believe that Revival is upon us! We hold fast and pray this out Psalm 2:8 Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations as Your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth as Your possession. And Isaiah 64:1-3 Oh, that You would rend the heavens! That You would come down! That the mountains might shake at Your presence 2 As fire burns brushwood, As fire causes water to boil—To make Your NAME known to Your adversaries, That the nations may tremble at Your PRESENCE!
Paul and Rose love to travel, go on dates, the outdoors, and love spending time with their grandchildren, family and friends.
Rose's favorite food is basically anything Mexican or anything spicy.
Paul's favorite food is nachos & pizza--- because it has all the major food groups.

Matty worked doing construction for 10 years before he came on staff at the church, and he has probably worked for 15 years of his 17 at the church also doing construction.

Matty's favorite passage of scripture is Luke 18:13-14 "But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even raise his eyes to heaven but kept striking his chest and saying, 'God turn your wrath from me- a sinner'
I tell you this one went down to his house justified rather than the other, because who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted."
"It gives me hope."- Matty
Matty likes lots of food but there probably is nothing better than fresh baby potatoes straight out of the garden.
