Pastor Cliff and Connie Siebert have been pastoring for more than 28 years throughout British Columbia, and now their travels and their work  have brought them to Vernon.

Cliff Siebert was installed as lead pastor at Vernon Full Gospel Church at a special ceremony last month, with Connie and their children, Rachel and Matthew, in attendance, officiated by Pastor Ken Russell, district superintendent of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada. Rachel was installed as the church’s new youth pastor.

The Sieberts have pastored in cities throughout the province, including Cloverdale, twice in Terrace, twice in Abbotsford, Williams Lake and spent the last eight years in Quesnel, where Cliff was lead pastor.

“We are very excited to begin this new chapter in our lives as we get to know the community of Vernon,” said Cliff.

“It’s a new day at VFGC and we hope to see some new faces come through the doors of the church.”

VFGC has programs for all ages, with church service beginning at 10 a.m. every Sunday.
