Our Pastoral Couple
John and Connie Reimer are our interim, and very approachable, pastoral couple. They come with a wide range of life experiences in pastoral and missionary service. They have served three different congregations as a pastoral couple and have been in Nicaragua and, most recently, Mexico, doing 'life on life' church planting.
They have three married children and four grandchildren who are living in Winnipeg and in Perth, Australia.
John loves the outdoors, mountain biking, hiking, running and birding. Connie enjoys cooking, music and teaching.
Outreach and Missions Ministry Team
Purpose statement: For our church, missions includes spending the majority of our time, energy and resources on outreach in our local context, while also proactively participating in God’s call to world missions as a means of fulfilling the great commission and discipling members of our church family.
Role of the Missions Team: The role of our church missions team is to raise the bar for missions in our church by empowering church members to become active participants in God’s mission to the world through awareness, prayer, giving and hands-on involvement. The team meets regularly throughout the year.

Youth Group Leaders & Helpers
A wonderful team of College & Career age young adults that have already been involved as leaders in our VBS program and are active at OBBC in a variety of ways have stepped up into leadership roles to run a Jr Youth program. One youth said, "They're the best leaders ever because they compete in all the games and activities with us and make it hard to win!"
