Our Church Staff

While the elders oversee the vision and policy of the church, the staff are responsible to implement that vision and manage the day-to-day ministry of the church. The goal of the staff is to enable the church to do the ministry that God has called us to together.

Pastor Mike Engbers

Lead Pastor

Mike and his family came to PCC in March 2019. He is passionate about ministering to the whole church – all ages – and seeing the church being a light in the community.

Mike is married to Christina, and has four daughters – Caralyn, Rachel, Madison, and Brooklyn. He enjoys woodworking, reading, movies, and also dabbles in website design and desktop publishing.  

Mike’s education includes a B.A. in Philosophy, a Masters of Divinity at Taylor Seminary in Edmonton, and in 2018 he completed a Doctor of Ministry degree in which his dissertation examined the role of technology in the overall ministry and mission of the church.

Elder - Board Chair

James’ connection to PCC goes back to when he attended the weekly Boys Brigade ministry and was privileged to be mentored by godly leaders through Bible studies, sports and outdoor trips.

As an Elder, James has been challenged to be the spiritual leader in his home and to set an example for Christ in interactions with community members. James is committed to being an Elder that is Christ-focused, Spirit-led, and focused on biblical truths and prayer. He desires to see the church be the hands and feet of Jesus, serving others and spreading the gospel through word and through lifestyle evangelism.

Karen joined the Elders board in 2022. She is excited to be involved in some of the behind-the-scenes work of the church and to see PCC become home to those who attend.

Karen grew up in a small Mennonite church in rural Saskatchewan. She settled into the Regina area full time in 2012 as a teacher and has considered PCC her home church ever since. She married Cody in 2013 and has three beautiful children that she now enjoys spending her days with. Karen has enjoyed seeing a variety of PCC’s ministries since moving to the Regina area. She finds great value in community, and has previously found it through Sunday school, camp ministries, small groups, Bible studies, and worship team. She is looking forward to seeing a new aspect of it through her work on the Elder’s Board.

Andy was baptized upon his confession of faith in 1986 in Saskatoon at Forest Grove Community Church. Andy has been involved at PCC in a variety of ministries including small groups, boys brigade, facility care, adult Sunday school, and as an Elder.

Andy recently retired from work as an Environmental Engineer with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture. Andy and Cheryl have adult children recently became
grandparents to their first grandchild.

Young Leaders

Our Elders board desires to invest in young leaders. One of the opportunities we have to do that is to invite several of the young leaders to come and be a part of the Elders board.  The value is in seeing these leaders grow but also in hearing their heart and thoughts as well as what God is placing on their hearts. The Young Leaders are not a voting part of the board, but they do contribute much to the team and church through their involvement.
