Pastor Jay Lafontaine

    My Christian heritage began in 1988 when I first accepted Christ as my Lord and Saviour at Teen Challenge in Hamilton, ON.  While there I was also baptized and received God’s call on my life.

    I started out my ministry experience as a volunteer youth worker, which led to a desire to serve in full-time ministry.  I attended Bible College in Edmonton, AB and Cambridge, ON.  I went on to do my Master of Divinity degree in Toronto and Hamilton, ON.

    I have been serving in a pastoral role for over 20 years.  I have served in Hamilton, ON, Morris, MB, Killaloe, ON and Seven Sisters Falls, MB.  I was ordained in 2008 as a North American Baptist Conference Pastor.

    I look forward to serving with the church family at Christian Fellowship Chapel as we care for one another and reach out to the community.

    I have been married for 30 years to Dallas, and we have two teenage daughters.  Together as a family, we serve in many capacities.

    I enjoy a good cup of black “pour over” coffee and spending time at the gym.

    In my leisure time, you can find me on the golf course, or on a cruise ship!
