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!
