"Supporting SKMB Churches and Camps in making disciples."

Welcome to SKMB | SKMB

Welcome to SKMB

Matt and Dawn Ewert are excited to join Forest Grove Church as Matt takes the role of Lead Pastor. Previously, Matt served at South Abbotsford MB Church for almost 20 years in various pastoral roles including Youth, Young Adults, Executive Pastor and Lead Pastor.

Matt loves the local church, as it is the community through which God demonstrates his rule and reign in the world today, and through which He invites all to surrender to Him and live under His Lordship. He is passionate about preaching and loves helping people encounter God in life changing

ways through His Word. He also enjoys engaging in ministry in the context of team, and feels incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of the amazing leadership team that currently serves at Forest Grove Church.

Having lived most of their lives in BC, Saskatchewan is a brand new context for Matt and Dawn. As they make the move to Saskatoon, they look forward to getting to know the city and dreaming with Forest Grove about the ways in which the church can continue to be active sharing the good news of Jesus with the community.

Matt’s ministry experience beyond the local church includes recently serving as a sessional professor at Columbia Bible College teaching Old Testament Survey, Timothy/Titus, and Homiletics. He has also had active involvement in conference ministry over the past decade

and recently served as the moderator of the BCMB Conference.

Matt has been married to his wife, Dawn, for 26 years. They are the proud parents of four adult children, and are excited to have recently welcomed their first grandchild into the family. In recent years they have also experienced the joy of being foster parents, focusing specifically on infants.

Winter Blues

Dear SKMB Family,

For me, it’s not the cold or snow that makes winter a hard season to slog through, it’s the darkness. I truly look forward to winter solstice when the movement toward ever darker days pivots and we begin to see more daylight.
