Jeremy Wolfram

Associate PastorContact:

My call to the ministry came at a young age and I have been blessed and amazed to see God unfolding this call in my life. Since marrying my wife Brandy in 2003 we have endeavored to serve Christ with everything we have to make Jesus greater in our lives, and the lives of others. Our desire is to see the Church built up and encouraged in all that God has called it to be corporately and individually. We are passionate about mobilizing God’s people to influence and reach our city with the gospel.

 Childrens/admin Contact:

I recently moved here from Saskatchewan and am excited to be a part of the Sonrise Team. I can’t wait to see how God will use and shape his Church in this season to impact people. I love having fun, being with people, cooking and drinking coffee.  I would love to get to know you, please come and introduce yourself.

Interim Music & Arts Minister Contact:

I am thrilled to fill in for Tiffany this year at Sonrise helping to run the music and media side of things at the Church. I have an extensive background in music, from running worship teams in college and churches, to touring around the country and playing and recording many live worship events. I am also a professional photographer and so I am well versed in the tech side of things for media.

Music & Arts Minister (currently on maternity leave)Contact:

Hi! After graduating in 2008 from Trinity Western University, where I studied music and communications, I joined the team at Sonrise – jumping into all sorts of ministries! I am currently serving as the Music & Arts Minister which is an area I love. I coordinate our online communications, media production, design work, our technical teams, and of course, our worship teams and seasonal artistic productions. The busyness of church life and ministry often reminds me of my happy (and busy!) childhood in a house of 6.

I love working with teams and witnessing the talents and personalities God has assigned to each of us uniquely. My husband Dillon and I live in Washington, USA, but still feel like Sonrise is our home. We love seeing what God is doing in the lives of everyone here, and are glad to be a part of the continuing development and dreams of our church.

stanStan Powers
Founding Pastor Contact:

Stan has transitioned from his duties at Sonrise, and can now be found overseeing the BC Region for ACOP and on the mission field in Africa.

I was pleased to launch this church after much planning and prayer with a team of people in February of 1989. The past 27 years have been filled with many happy stories, challenges and blessings – and I love being a part of it all.

Joan and I have enjoyed a great marriage of over 40 years, and together we have 2 daughters who have married and presented us with 7 grandchildren to date. When all the kids are in the house it’s a great, wild time.
