Kevin Ewaskow Pastor of Spiritual Formation
Our Lead Pastor Kevin Ewaskow grew up here in Cranbrook. He spent eight years in Calgary after college and came to serve in pastoral ministry at First Baptist Church back in 2006. Kevin has a real heart for seeing people of all ages become aware and transformed by God; through listening to His voice, engaging practices and celebrating God’s goodness. He completed his Masters in Spiritual Formation through Carey Theological College in 2014 and was ordained in 2015. He is passionate about hockey chaplaincy with the Cranbrook bucks. He is a hack golfer and poet, loves mountain biking and paddle boarding, making "dad jokes" and cooking . . . but most of all enjoys spending time with his wonderful family; his wife Natasha and their 3 daughters.
