On Sunday March 20 at congregational meetings our Faith Communities approved the recommendation of the Joint Ministry Profile Search Committee to call Rev. Hati Mvundura to the full-time shared ministry position at Zion United, Armstrong and St. Andrew’s United, Enderby.
Rev. Mvundura will commence this ministry on June 1.
Current Ministry Leadership
Rev. Heather Burton is currently Zion’s part-time Supply Minister, with Louise Burton and Rev. Wendy Adams available for Pulpit Supply as needed.
Rev. Heather Burton has ministered at Zion several times in the past, and we know her as a gifted spiritual leader and caring friend. Since retirement from Winfield United Church in 2008 she has been active in many areas: supply ministry, art, catering and giving cooking lessons. And she says, “I love to travel and have been fortunate to indulge that in my retirement.” She and husband Rev. John Burton, also a retired United Church minister, live in Lake Country.
Louise Burton LLWL is a long-time member of Zion United Church Armstrong. Following retirement from her career as a Physiotherapist she took the United Church Licensed Lay Worship Leader Program through Prairie Christian Training Centre (the prairie version of Naramata) and graduated in 2003. She has led worship in many churches throughout the former Kamloops Okanagan Presbytery, as well as here at Zion United. Louise is passionate about golf in the summer, curling in the winter, and travel all year long!
Rev. Wendy Adams was ordained to congregational ministry at St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Armstrong in 2007. She retired in 2015 and then worked for 3 seasons at All Saints Anglican Church leading their children and family ministry program. Since retiring again Wendy has focused on music and art and hopes to continue facilitating Christian Retreats after the pandemic.
