new – news for 2019

September 2019

Well, as this Season of Life would have it, Al & Sonya asked us if we would like to consider an In-Law Apartment with them in their new place of Ministry in Oshawa, Ontario.

Lorna & I prayed about it and without too much hesitation, we proceeded to help find a new house in Courtice.     Happy to say the Lord has provided.   Yet Again!  

So we have sold our town-house in Brantford and moved to Courtice.   Lots of memories in the packing and discarding, but necessary in down-sizing once again.   

Pray for us during this transition that all goes well, and we settle in without incident.    Blessings,     John & Lorna

The Country Parson Ministry (  is working at putting Successors in place to continue some of the Special Ministries John has been doing over the last several years.

  1.  The School of Evangelists

For the last 18 years, I’ve been mentoring Evangelists to go into the Harvest Field.   This has become a passion of mine.   

The New President is:

Evangelist Sajanth Mohanakanthan  (Saj Mohan).

He’s a young man that I have worked with over the last 10 years and found him to be Godly, hard working, focused and passionate about Evangelists.

2. The Canadian Christian Ministers Federation

For 12 years we have been Licensing and Ordaining Ministers of the Gospel, under this Association.

The new President is:

Rev Dr Bryan Vaughan

This is a great Association to have Credentials with, we now have 106 Members

3.  Ontario Bible Institute

The New President is:

Evangelist Rev Finu Iype

The new Bible Institute being designed from scratch is called :    P.R.I.S.M.  –   Passion to reach International School of Ministry.        The new website is up and running and accepting applications for Students for Bible, Theology and Music Courses, beginning in January 2019.    More will be added to bring it to a full compliment of Certificate and Diploma Programs.


I’m excited to see what this new phase of Ministry will look like as many more become involved and taken over  the Ministries that     have developed over the years with C.P.M.
