Meet Our Pastors
Pastors Shane & Becky Fitch
Shane and Becky were married in 1999. Since then they have served as youth, music and children's pastors (Goderich, ON) before arriving in Bradford in 2006.
Pastor Shane's passion is to help people build meaningful relationships and attain their God-given destiny. As a gifted and accomplished musician, his servant's heart shines as he works with the BCC music Worship Team, encouraging them to reach higher in developing their craft for the kingdom's sake. His "where the rubber meets the road" humorous style of preaching practical Biblical truth often leaves people wondering if he has somehow been a fly on their wall the past week. Not only does he love music and equipping the family of God to really live, but Shane also is totally into anything pertaining to sports, sushi and his family.
Pastor Becky loves to assist others by equipping them to fulfill their God given dreams. Her defining scripture verse (below) is witnessed by all as it is played out daily in her caring attitude towards everyone, of all ages, and in her diligence in utilizing her gifts to spiritually and physically "build up" the church. She is in her element entertaining people in her home, chatting over a cup of tea. She enjoys scrapbooking, spending time with her family, and...the calming effect of a London Fog.

Cory was raised in a Christian home and began studying music and saxophone at thirteen years of age. He married Heidi in 1994 and moved to the Bradford area in 1997, where now as an integral part of the church family, Cory serves on the worship team. His distinctive soprano sax can be heard at Sunday service soaring above the the melody line.
Heidi's gift of hospitality and engaging personality is also quickly spotted on Sundays as she attempts to get to just everybody to see how they are doing. She also serves with our young children and plays a leadership role in other church programs.
There's always something to talk about with Cory who enjoys riding his motorcycle, eating sushi, and wearing flip flops everywhere...including church. His outgoing personality and warm smile are appreciated as he welcomes one and all, making visitors feel right at home.
