Brian Wiens – Broadway Site

I began as the Broadway Site Pastor in October, 2016, and I am delighted to have the opportunity to serve with that community.Our Broadway Congregation is committed to being present in the Broadway neighborhood, and I am drawn to the challenge of allowing God to continue to shape our engagement with that part of Saskatoon.

I have spent much of my adult life in various pastoral roles, but from 2013-16 I worked as the Director of a non-profit in Regina, and that experience has sharpened my focus on helping the church engage well with the wider community. I love talking with people about their spiritual journey, and I relish opportunities to study the Bible in order to hear and share what God wants to speak to us.

My wife Aimee and I have four daughters – Bethany, Kristen, Alexa and Anna, and one of our favorite past-time is eating ice-cream together! I also love the outdoors, whether it is walking with Aimee, camping, fishing, etc….

Bruce Enns – Lead Pastor

It’s been quite an exciting ride, continuing to learn what it means to be a pastor, since 2000.  I have had the privilege of serving as Lead Pastor since 2004 and continue to see God stretching and growing each one of us as we strive to walk in faith.  My background has been in coaching and athletics, but God has a great sense of humour and had different plans that led us here to FGCC in pastoral ministry.  What continues to inspire and motivate me is to see the transformation that occurs in people’s lives when we encounter the living God in Jesus Christ.  One of my life verses is 2 Timothy 1:7 that “God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.”  It seems I need to re-claim different aspects of that truth every week.

Personally, I love the outdoors and almost any sport involving water, I still try to play hockey, and the way I get “re-created” on my days off is to put on a tool belt and work with my hands (especially woodworking).

Dale Dirksen – Executive Pastor

I joined the staff of Forest Grove Community Church in 2009. A lot of my role involves helping different ministries of the church integrate well with each other as well as helping guide the use of FGCC resources to accomplish our mission. That involves meeting with and coaching lots of teams and individuals. I like that I get to help people become as effective as possible in their ministry. I also do the “normal” pastor things like preaching/teaching, working with couples as they join in marriage, and spiritual direction. In addition, I give leadership to the multi-site initiatives at FGCC.

Before coming to FGCC, I had a lot of different kinds of jobs including worship pastor, youth pastor, musician, administrator, and seminary teacher. I am married to Rebecca and we have two beautiful daughters – Andra-Lynne and Reisha. In 2010, we also gained two sons-in-law (Nathan and Seth) and have 4 grandchildren. I enjoy spending time outdoors with my wife and family and I also value the therapy of woodworking and golf.

Maryanne Berge – Missions

Forest Grove has been my spiritual family for over 26 years.  God surprised me when He opened the door for me to serve in the area of Missions in 2008.  I have always had a heart for missions – especially among unreached people groups.  I love caring for missionaries, discipling others and praying for nations to know Jesus. It is a real privilege to do that here among a church that reaches out from the river to the ends of the earth.  ” May the nations praise You O God” Psalm 67:5

I love spending time with my husband Scott and our 3 almost grown up kids! I am thankful that we have had the opportunity to serve in missions together in various ways.  God has used them to teach me about love, surrender and trust.  I am refreshed by sharing tea with a friend, being outside in the sunshine with a good book or baking in my kitchen.

Anna Erickson – Office Administration

I have always wanted to work in an administrative role and being able to do that in a church is a dream come true. I have a passion for organization and hope to be able to implement that in this role; therefore helping other staff and those in leadership succeed. 

I am married to my best friend, Matt. I grew up in BC and attended Columbia Bible College after high-school where I received a diploma in Biblical Studies while also playing on the college volleyball team there. When I am not working, I enjoy playing sports, exploring the outdoors and also exploring different coffee shops. I also consider re-organizing things a hobby of mine.

Anna Robinson – Finance

Yep – I am one of those crazy people who just loved math growing up.  Numbers, figures, graphs just came natural to me.  I love the order and logic of finances and accounting.  I consider it such a privilege to be working here at Forest Grove and to work with people who are committed in following Christ in whatever they do.

I also love to read books.  I read as much as I can – books have always broaden my horizons – helping me to understand the world around me.  I am also hooked on sports.  Nothing like watching two good teams or athletes compete.  I enjoy playing tennis and in the summer I just love to have a healthy competition with the weeds in my yard.  I am married to Arthur and we are blessed with three kids, Michael, Lauren & Aidan.
