Blake & Adrienne Joiner
Adrienne Joiner is an ordained minister. She and her husband Blake co-pastored Living Word Christian Fellowship in Cloverdale, B. C. for 12 years. Adrienne and Blake have two grown children; Chad and Tiffany, who are both active in worship ministry at Connect Church and are the proud “Mammy” and Pappy” to six grandchildren; Dakoda, Cherokee, Sierra, Summer, Cadence & Leif. Adrienne is involved in the Abbotsford arts community through Fraser Valley Stage and can be seen performing lead and supportive roles in that capacity. Adrienne is a well known speaker, gifted soloist and worship leader and has ministered extensively throughout Canada. Adrienne has a strong passion and call to this nation; to equip & release and to call forth and strengthen the generations. Adrienne ministers with a loving and strong prophetic anointing.
Blake has pastored alongside Adrienne for the past 12 years and following ordination in 2005 took on a more direct responsibility to pastor and shepherd, making way for Adrienne to be more active in her prophetic gifting. Blake has been in business his whole life with over 30 years managing his industrial auctioneering company. While presently pastoring at Connect Church, Blake maintains a presence in the business world with an oversight involvement in his company. Blake’s pastor heart is to see people become followers of Jesus through being loved, taught and released into fulfilling their own God given destiny. To provide a safe, healing and nurturing place for the hurting, lonely, spiritually hungry and inquiring person or family is one of his goals. Blake is an ordained member of the CFCM ministerial network
Sean & Jamie Sabourin
Sean and Jamie met in the summer of 2003. Sean, with his former past and at that time his current role at BC Teen Challenge, had a great way of relating with troubled youth, whereas Jamie was not so experienced with this area, together, they worked well at ministering to young teens. They soon realized they were a great team together more than just in a church setting, but as life partners, and were married in 2005. Starting their lives together in Abbotsford, they developed a heart for the city and its people. They have been a part of the pastoral team at Connect for the last 5 years and desire for those trapped in the bondage of sin to be set free by the transforming power of Jesus Christ. They have a heart for marriages, young families, and broken lives and desire to minister out of the love Christ has been to them. Sean & Jamie have three children: Nola, Memphis and River.
Jamie loves to write and spend time in the kitchen creating healthy, yummy food. You can visit her blog at undertheteacozy.wordpress.com. You can follow Sean on Twitter or can visit his blog at seansabourin.com where he writes about life, leadership and ministry.
