Pastor Jonathan and Marcia Krenz

Lead Pastor

Marcia and I have been part of Victory Church on the Rock since 2001. We love the heart of this church and since 2007, I have had the honour of serving as Lead Pastor. I grew up as a Pastor’s kid so I knew lots about God and about church but my life changed when I met Jesus and realized I could know him personally. To that end, my passion is to help others find real and practical relationship with Jesus and to motivate continual development of that relationship.

On a personal note, Marcia and I are high-school sweethearts. After graduation, Marcia spent a year in a discipleship program and then completed a B.Sc. in Nursing. I completed a degree in Christian Studies and and B.Sc. in Environmental Studies. Then, finally, we were married in 2002. Currently our days are consumed with raising our three daughters and one son, serving and loving and leading the people of Victory Church on the Rock, and following Jesus wherever he leads. And, we love what we do!

A constant prayer in my life comes from Psalm 143:10, “Teach me to do your will, for you are my God.” I love to study the Bible and to teach its truths in creative ways. I believe church should be an exciting and creative place to experience the presence of God. And I believe it is a place to encourage one another as we all seek to follow Jesus, our Leader.

Thank you for visiting our website today. You will learn more about us and about the church as you continue to explore the site. We look forward to making a connection with you either through this website or in person at the church. In either case, God bless you with his love and wisdom.
