New Building Update (December 16, 2012)
Calvin welcomes Jacques Viljoen, the project manager for our new church building and Richard Coleman, the president and founder of Titan Construction, to worship this morning. Richard founded Titan in 1986 and since then has built a great reputation in the Lower Mainland for bringing projects in on time and on budget with a high standard of quality, always striving to do so ethically and in partnership with their client.
Jacques Viljoen has been with Titan Construction Ltd for a decade, the last six years as a partner. His construction project experience in that time includes working on and with Aldergrove Alliance Church (Aldergrove), the Peace Portal Alliance Church Administration building (South Surrey), and Kids World Daycare Centre (Langley) as well as many other light industrial, commercial and retail buildings. As a company, Titan has also recently worked with MEI, Southridge Fellowship Baptist Church and Cloverdale Baptist Church. Originally from South Africa, Jacques has a B. Sc. in Construction Management from the University of Pretoria and a M.B.A. from the University of Phoenix (Burnaby campus). From the very first time Jacques introduced his company Titan to Calvin he has been clear that “as a Christian organization we understand and respect the fact that the church will be constructed using congregation member’s money. We take the stewardship of funds very seriously.”
Thank you for your continued support.

A Brief View of Calvin Church
Calvin Church is part of The Presbyterian Church in Canada, www.presbycan.ca, a church family of about 750 congregations, with a history spanning almost four centuries of Canada’s story, with roots in the European and Scottish Reformation. Today, the PCC ministers to people of many European, African, Asian, Central and South American origin, as well as to First Nations’ peoples. Calvin Church was, in fact, first established in 1946 as a Hungarian-speaking congregation; it became English-speaking in the 1970’s. Most congregations of the PCC, including Calvin Church, have representatives of Canada’s wide multi-cultural mosaic within their membership.
The affairs of the congregation are guided by the Pastor and Elders (who are elected by the congregation). They set the vision and have oversight of the membership, discipline, worship, Christian education, stewardship and mission of the congregation. They encourage the work of various ministry teams, such as worship, congregational life, pastoral care and mission & outreach, and committees, such as the Facilities and Finance committee, and the New Building committee, all of which carry out the work and witness of the congregation.
You may become a member of the congregation, either by transfer of certificate from another Christian denomination or by making a profession or reaffirmation of faith. A series of inquiry and orientation classes are held annually. We publish a congregational directory for members and adherents (friends and supporters) of the congregation
