Sunday, 10 July 2022
After more than 32 years as a member of Saanich Baptist Church staff, 24 of those years as Lead Pastor, Steve Sundby announced to the congregation on July 10, 2022 that he is resigning, believing that it is time for a new chapter in his life and a new leader for SBC. His last day as Lead Pastor will be Sunday, September 25th, 2022.
Steve’s powerful and transformational sermons, visionary leadership, and his and Sylvia’s sacrificial service and long‑term commitment to SBC and our community, have been a gift.
Believing it is time for a new pastor, with a new voice, that SBC is moving into a new season and is destined for new heights, and that God has amazing things in store for our church, Steve is convinced SBC’s best days are ahead.
Between now and the arrival of a new Lead Pastor, our church will continue to inspire and equip people to live Micah 6:8 wherever they find themselves. SBC members will continue to share the love of Jesus Christ and bring hope to people in need – walking humbly with our God, compassionately serving others in our city and beyond, acting justly for the poor and oppressed, and celebrating God and His kingdom activity.
The elected Servant Leaders of SBC’s Leadership Board have established a search committee and will provide details to the congregation on the search process in the coming weeks.
Thank you for your continued support and prayers during this time of transition.
