Rev. Dr. Sheila Macgregor, Hons. B.A., M.A., M.Div., D.Min. Lead Minister & Minister of Worship and Pastoral Care
Over the past thirty years that Sheila has been in pastoral ministry, she has discovered that our greatest resource is our people. The Christian faith is profoundly relational. It is people who bring people to Christ. It is people who embody the Good News and share it in both word and action. A love of stories, combined with a strong faith in the risen, living Christ, has been the cornerstone of her ministry to date. She is excited to be in ministry at Siloam and both she and her family have been impressed by the warmth and friendliness of the congregation and the amazing range of talents and gifts among both staff and congregational members. It is her prayer that you also will find a loving welcome at Siloam and that together “we may be Christ to each other and God’s world.”
Over Wib’s 20 years in pastoral ministry he’s had the pleasure of serving three pastoral charges: Emo in northwestern Ontario; Selkirk, a small hamlet on Lake Erie, and St. Marys. From 1992 until his retirement in 2011, he served as Director for Ministry Advancement for southwestern Ontario with the Canadian Bible Society. He’s immensely thankful for his years of ministry and for the wonderful folks he met and sought to serve along the way.
Wib has always been amazed and humbled at how God is not only a Creator God but also a Creating God who invites us to work alongside him in his never ending quest to bring humanity into a meaningful relationship with him. “The Scriptures aid us in gaining some perspective. They are far more than a document about ancient history but rather a vital testimony to God’s presence with us in the rough and tumble of our everyday experiences. God speaks to us, not as spectators, but as participants in an amazing drama that continues to unfold.”
Wib is deeply appreciative of the honour of being appointed a Minister Emeritus of Siloam and will, with the grace of God, seek to serve wherever he may be of use.
Ann Corbet was baptized and confirmed in First St Andrew’s United Church, and ordained by London Conference in 1992. She ministered in Labrador for four adventure-filled years, then returned to southwestern Ontario, serving the Tupperville Pastoral Charge in Kent Presbytery, Bedford United Church in Windsor, and most recently, the Woodslee Pastoral Charge in Essex Presbytery. Ann is a graduate of the Jubilee Program in Spiritual Direction. She is passionate about cultivating a deep and rich prayer life, and enjoys enabling others to do the same. This summer, in order to be closer to family, Ann returned to her hometown of London. She is excited about becoming the newest member of the Siloam family and sharing in the ministry of visitation.
