    About Us

About Us…

At Prince George Christian Reformed Church (PGCRC) we are on a journey of loving God with all our hearts, soul, strength and mind, and loving our neighbours as ourselves (Luke 10:27) . As a church community we are trying to foster an environment and culture where people of all ages and backgrounds can grow in Christ and live into God’s grand redemptive story.

What We Believe…

PGCRC is a part of the Christian Reformed Church of North America denomination (CRCNA). We believe that the name “Christian Reformed Church” tells it all:

Christian…

This is the story we are a part of. This is the story told in the Bible which centres on the self-giving love of God as Jesus Christ on the cross for our salvation.

Reformed…

If “Christian ” is the story we are a part of, then the “Reformed” part is the lens through which we look at and understand the story. We believe that the Reformed church tradition gives us an accurate lens to look through and understand the Bible and the Christian life for all its worth.

Church…

If “Christian” is the story, and “Reformed” is the lens, then “Church” is the community in which we live out the story. A Church is a community. The building is the place where the community gathers. The Christian life is personal, but it is not private—we live, nurture and share it in community.

Our Pastor…

Andrew Aukema grew up in Chatham, Ontario, surrounded by corn fields, soybean fields, and long, straight, fast highways. As he neared the end of high school he was warned over and over again by teachers that once you leave the Christian school you will encounter the “real world.” Rather than continue on with his education at a Christian university he went off in search of the real world at the University of Windsor where he completed in a BA in Communications & Media Studies. While taking a Sociology of Advertising course Andrew watched a PBS documentary called “The Persuaders” which showed how advertisers invite consumers to buy into an identity rather than just a product. Concerned with how consumerism was taking over the centre of our identity which rightly belongs to Christ, Andrew set out on a journey to taking his Christian identity more seriously and intentionally, eventually putting him on a journey of discerning a call into ministry. Andrew found Regent College to be the place for his continued training grounds and formation for ministry. After graduating with a Masters of Divinity in 2012 he set off to serve the Prince George Christian Reformed Church. To this day he continues to enjoy helping people see the world through a Christian redemptive lens and connect their living faith with everyday life.

We look forward to meeting you and hope you are welcomed and nourished at PGCRC whether you drop in as you pass through town or choose to make it your church home.
