Scott Tolhurst

Transitional Leader - Scott@parliamentchurch.com

I am an Ontario boy who has taken root in the west and wonders why it took him so long to do it!  Miriam and I have landed at the water’s edge in BC but I missed the prairie’s open skies. I now have the privilege of walking with PCC through a season of change. We celebrate what has been - but like kids on Christmas morn - we know something special is coming. The gifts are a mystery- but are all labeled “Grace!”

A list of my major flaws include - I don't like hockey, have never seen a Rough Rider’s game and prefer temperatures with a plus sign. I hope to see all of these amended during my stay in the best part of Canada. 

Randy Chase

Pastor of Quest Groups, 55+, and Men's Ministry - randy@parliamentchurch.com

I began my ministry at PCC in August  of 2014.  I appreciate the genuine community at PCC ,and am excited to be part of the pastoral team and to teach a Sunday Adult Discipleship Bible Class.  I’m married to Myrna, and we have 2 grown children-Stephanie, and Christopher.

My hobby is sports. I follow our Riders, the St Louis Cardinals baseball team ,and hockey’s Toronto Maple Leafs. The latter teach me patience!

I have enjoyed many authors over the years. Presently, I find Timothy Keller a good read.

Tim Thiessen

Pastor of Young Adults, Family Ministries and Community Outreach - tim@parliamentchurch.com

I was added to the team here at PCC in August of 2014.  My background has been in youth ministry.  I enjoy building relationships with others and am passionate about seeing people come to know Jesus.  I have been married to Michelle since 2000 (strategically planned for anniversaries).  We have three children, two boys and one daughter.  As a family we enjoy bike rides, camping, and being goofy together.  My favorite restaurant has always been Earls, and I enjoy Starbucks coffee.  I coach my boy’s soccer teams and enjoy cross-country running.  My favorite author/preachers are; Andy Stanley, Craig Groeschel, and Francis Chan.

Ryan Bright

Youth Pastor - ryan@parliamentchurch.com

I started at PCC in May 2015, and married my beautiful wife Shauna in the summer of 2017! I enjoy hanging out with youth and volunteers at various coffee shops around Regina as we seek to live radical lives following Christ.  Some selections from my vast number of hobbies include playing guitar, skiing, disc golf, making coffee, riding motorcycles and reading. 

Kristen Cowman

Children's Director - kristen@parliamentchurch.com

I joined the team November 2016.  I have an education degree, with a passion for Children and their families, within the context of the church.  I am married, with three children (2 girls and a boy).  We love to entertain and play games.  I love cooking and sewing, as well as reading when I can find the time, often having more then one book on the go.  Two of my favourite authors are C.S. Lewis and Karen Kingbury.

Heather Filazek

Administrative Assistant - info@parliamentchurch.com

I began in the role of Administrative Assistant at PCC in June of 2015 and have been attending PCC as a family since 1997.  I have been married to Darryl since 1996 and we have been blessed with three wonderful children, Emily, Sabina and Declan. 

As a family we love road trips and try to get a down hill ski trip in each year.  Darryl and I love our PCC Quest Group and enjoy spending time with them as couples and as a group. I love to read.  The downside of a good book in my hands is everything goes to the wayside until said book is finished.
