Our Team

We are dedicated in building God's Kingdom one brick at a time.

David & Dayna Neufeld

Pastor & First Lady

David & Dayna came to us by way of NECF, our sister church in Edmonton. They have been a wonderful addition to our church family along with their two children, Benjamin & Isabella. David's teaching is true to the word and Dayna is a wonderful example of a wife, mother and most of all a Christ follower. We are excited to have them here leading us in this new chapter of our lives in Aspen Ridge Christian Fellowship.

Wayne & Wanda Pacholok


As a church we have been blessed to have Wayne and Wanda leading us as our Elders. During a trial time of transition they have been people that we could look to for direction. With their love for the Lord and for the Community of Athabasca we have been in good hands. 

Marg Liknes


We are absolutely thrilled to introduce our newest Elder to our leadership team. Marg brings a wisdom, experience, passion and influence that can only come with years of devotion to the Lord. Most importantly, Marg hears the Lord and delivers His words with accuracy and compassion. She is truly a mother to all and an example to all young women who look up to her. Marg has invested much time and prayer to individuals, ARCF and Athabasca as a whole. She is a prayer warrior to the core and loves any opportunity to pray, both corporately and in her prayer closet. We are excited to see what the Lord will do with one who brings truth and unity to wherever she goes.  

Cliff Brandon


Cliff has been a long time resident of Athabasca and serves us well. He also loves the Community of Athabasca and of Aspen Ridge. Cliff offers leadership in Men's Ministry as well as Senior's Ministry. 

Rod Cunanan


Rod serves in many different areas within Athabasca. He is also known as our resident Bee Keeper so when you see him at the local Farmer's Market selling his honey stop in and say hi. Rod oversees our Care Ministry Team with a loving and caring heart. 

Leo Pacholok


Leo has moved back to Athabasca a few years ago after being gone for a number of years. We welcomed him back by putting him on the Board as a Deacon. He serves the church well with wisdom and a heart for the Lord. He has many different areas of expertise that we can draw from and has been a great asset to our family.

Deanna Pacholok


Deanna was raised in Athabasca and has a heart for young adults, young women and the community.  Deanna has a passion for worship and has taken leadership in our flag ministry within the church.   We are so happy to have Deanna join us in the leadership as of Sept / 2018 and we know that her gifts and passion for the Lord, and to see Him move in the way He wants to move, will only bring encouragement and direction to ARCF as a whole.  We are so glad Leo and Deanna have chosen to make ARCF their home.

Jake Halliday


Jake, along with his wife Keylea, work as a team to compliment one anothers gifts in leadership.  They are new to our team as on Sept/2018 and we are excited to see what God is doing in and through them.  
Jake and Keylea have a passion for children, youth, worship and servanthood.  They have a love for the community and seeing the young people rise up.

Jim and Kay Churchill

Worship/Sound/Media Team Leaders

Jim and Kay Churchill are a husband and wife team who support both the music and sound end of worship.  They have extensive experience in both areas and bring more than just their knowledge to the team.  With many years of experience in both the area of worship and in leadership, we are excited to see individuals flourish and grow.

They, along with others on their team, lead us in a genuine, Holy Spirit led, worship to the Lord. They truly are people that love the Lord and we are grateful that they call ARCF their home.
