Roberta and her husband Mark are devoted to building the local church in Canada. They are passionate about people and have a heart and vision to see people from all different backgrounds and experiences come to know the love of Jesus and the abundant life that he promises everyone.

Roberta and her husband Mark moved to Winnipeg in 2015, shortly after graduating from Vanguard Bible College with their Bachelor of Arts in Theology degrees (Roberta also graduated in 2018 with her Bachelor of Social Worker), and getting married, where she and Mark served as youth and young adult pastors. While serving in this capacity they saw God move in ways that far exceeded their wildest dreams. From seeing over 1000 unique junior high and high school students attend their youth ministry, to pioneering the largest youth conference in Manitoba, and establishing a thriving young adults ministry averaging 150 young adults, God has been faithful and good every step of the way.

They are excited to step out in faith again to plant Rose Church in Winnipeg in September 2020 and see God move in even more incredible ways. Rose Church is the realization of a dream that God gave them in 2012, a dream to plant a life-giving church in a major Canadian city that would influence and resource the city and surrounding region for the sake of the gospel and for God’s glory. Additionally, Roberta and Mark are expecting their first child in September (due 3 weeks before the launch of Rose Church).
