Leadership at Jubilee
Firstly, we should say that there are lots of people leading in lots of ways at Jubilee. We're all learning how God has called us to participate as a Body - each one with a place and role to use our God-given gifts for His glory. We have team leaders, group leaders, people giving oversight (like our launch team or our task force), and a few paid staff.
Jonathan Headley - Pastor
Jonathan has a call to pastoral ministry. Before planting this community, he worked as a youth and then associate pastor with Maple Ridge Community Church for 9 years. He has done other things before becoming a vocational pastor, including but not limited to ESL teacher, grocery store bag boy and water lily cultivator. He has a background in drama, music, and teaching. He is an engaging preacher with plenty of sound effects and a deep and vibrant walk with Jesus. One of his favourite things is seeing the Bible come alive for people in understanding and life change. He fiddles on guitar and is a song writer and passionate worshiper. He is head over heels in love with his wife Lauren, and privileged to be father to five incredible children (Madeleine, Elijah, Gabriel, Maelle and Miriam).

Ben King - Worship Coordinator
Ben has a call to worship. He grew up in Maple Ridge and although he has a heart to travel the world over, God has called him here to serve with his many gifts in the Jubilee community. Ben has made the journey of brokenness and his walk with Jesus is a demonstration of this. He leads with humility and depth of passion that reveal his vibrant walk with Jesus. He loves people and music, and is part of a band called Daylight which has released a few great worship albums (find out more). Ben plays guitar, bass and loves to lead the gathering in musical worship. He is also a gifted preacher and gentle leader. Ben serves with Jubilee part time and also works as an ESL teacher. We're excited to see Ben stepping out in our community.

Rebecca Dougan - Jubilee Kids Coordinator
Rebecca isn't just a kid-person, she has a kid heart. This makes her ideally suited to pursue the Kingdom the way she does - with passion, love and laughter. Rebecca comes to us out of the Dougan family (they are a kids program unto themselves) with seven brothers and sisters. We sent her out for a time to Uganda, Greece and other far away locals to live on mission as Jubilee away. But Rebecca now spends her time keeping insanely busy directing, acting, singing in and helping with dramatic and musical productions. She has lots of experience dealing with kids, parents and making things go on the fly. We're blessed she's serving here with us in Jubilee Kids!
Jubilee Task Force
As a church plant in the C2C network, our structure is a little different than most churches. We operate under the oversight of a Task Force made up of key leaders in our community and surrounding areas. Over the years to come, Task Force members are being gradually replaced by elders (who meet Biblical requirements) from within Jubilee as we raise up internal leaders with a heart and passion for our vision and mission.
