Beacon Church is affiliated with the BC Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches.
Our Lead Pastor is Joe Haynes, a graduate of Northwest Baptist Seminary / ACTS & Trinity Western University. Joe has served as a pastor, alongside his wife, Heather in Baptist and Mennonite churches in BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan before coming to Victoria in 2011 for the purpose of planting a new church.
Heather has a Bachelor's Degree in Religion from Northwest Baptist College & Trinity Western University and is now a full-time foster-mom. They have five children ranging in age from teens to adults and two foster children. Planting this church has been a family effort from day one. Each of the Haynes kids has been a big help to our team of volunteers.
Beacon Church is overseen by an elders' team made up of two lay-elders and Joe as a full-time preaching elder, plus one current apprentice elder. Other areas of volunteer ministry are led by a deacon and several volunteers from the membership of the congregation.
