Our Pastor

Our pastor Jane Porter was ordained in June of 2014. She is thrilled to be a part of the ministry of the Christian Reformed Church in Orillia.

Jane has a passion for preaching and for studying God’s Word. Her experience in raising three children with her husband Doug and her years of work in the film and television industry have developed in her a pastoral heart for a wide variety of people.

Having spent most of their adult life in Halifax, Nova Scotia, 9 years of this living in a housing co-operative, Jane and Doug came to Orillia with a vision of Christian living as a shared life together. “God continues to enter into the lives of people, healing them and growing them to serve him in their communities and in the larger world.”
