The Maritime Conference would like to announce the appointment of Teresa (VanWart) Ferreira as our new Executive Secretary, Education Superintendent, and Camp Director. Mrs. Ferreira succeeds Paul Llewellyn, who was elected as president of the Maritime Conference on February 11, 2017.
Mrs. Ferreira is currently the principal of Coralwood Academy in Edmonton, Alberta and will be assuming her new portfolio this coming summer. Mrs. Ferreira joins us with her husband, Brian and daughter, Sophia. Their daughter was a surprise a year ago, but truly an honourable gift from God. She attests that the passion to keep people in our church and spiritually on fire for an absolute God of love in a world that triumphs compromise is woven into every detail of who she is and what she represents. She considers her ministry for God to be the lifeblood of her very soul, and challenges people to hold fast to Psalm 16:8 and “not be moved”.
“We are proud to have Mrs. Ferreira join the administrative team at the Maritime Conference. Her vast experience in education and youth ministries will be a powerful resource and asset to our small Conference. All three provinces our now fully represented by birth, of all three Officers for the Maritime Conference,” states Paul Llewellyn.
