Brian Wiens

Pastor

As Pastor at The Gathering, Brian gives oversight to our interactive teaching and worship week to week. Brian is not afraid to ask the hard questions of life and leads in a way that provides space to ask questions, discuss, and seek to know Jesus and His intention for the world.

Brian’s life quest has been to find peace - peace with himself and peace with God. Along his journey through academics, athletics, and health issues, Brian found the love of Jesus and was inspired to use his life to help others sort out what it means to follow Jesus too. Throughout the week you can often find him at Broadway Roastery with a tea in hand or outdoors camping, biking, and canoeing.

“To serve the church so that people experience the love of Christ and learn to follow Him.” - Pastor Brian Wiens 306-914-2954

June Wilson

Super June

June has been serving on our Leadership Team for the past two years. Through her empathetic insights, she makes sure that everything we do as a community tries to reflect the love that Jesus had for the people in His time.

June and her husband Steve found The Gathering through their son, Andrew. When she’s not taking photos for Federated Co-operatives Limited you can find her dreaming about beautiful British Columbia. The mountains and the ocean is where she feels most at home, but the love for her community and work as a photographer keeps her grounded here in the Sask. Ask her about her experience as a mentor with the Sask. MB Leaders Collective!

“I want every person I come in contact with to be encouraged and built up. I want to be Jesus' hands and feet.” - June Wilson

Caitlin Schindel

Energizer Bunny

Caitlin serves on the leadership team and is involved with the children’s ministry here at The Gathering at Broadway.

Caitlin first stumbled upon our community through her now husband. They’ve been involved with this community since the beginning. As a registered nurse (RN) in emergency, she gets to see and be a part of life change in and outside our community. Being an RN and the mother of two sweet little girls takes up the majority of her time, but whenever she gets a spare moment she enjoys long distance running, building relationships, and fighting against human trafficking and sexual slavery.

“But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” - Isaiah 40:31

Megan Seier

Logically Creative

Megan initially heard about the The Gathering through friends while searching for a church both her and her husband could call home. Since joining, she has found a rich community of people from all walks of life striving toward a similar goal and now serves on our leadership team.

Working as the Centre Director at Mathnasium, she gets to embrace her inner nerd and teach math to kids with an incredible team there. In her spare time you can find her out partner dancing, at poetry nights, or as part of the Do Sask book club.

Levi Adams

Team Man

Levi desires to be a man of integrity. He truly believes that what we do carries way more weight than what we say and leads by example on our Leadership Team. Growing up here in Saskatoon and moving into the Broadway area, transition to The Gathering fit well and has become a great community for him and his family. Levi, unfortunately, finds himself in front of a computer for most of his work, so in his spare time he tries to spend it outdoors with his family or playing a few rounds of disc golf with friends.

“Actions speak louder than words.” - Abraham Lincoln

Michael Donauer

Motivation

Michael co-leads our setup and tear down with his wife April and is another member of our Leadership Team. His passion to find and take hold of meaningful opportunities has helped our community take steps towards the realization of our vision.

Being born and raised in Saskatoon, Michael has developed a deep love for this city and his family. Growing up in a Christian home, Jesus was never a stranger in his life. Through his teenage years he began to understand why his family believed what they believed and began to identify with his faith. Now you can find him playing disc golf, reading nonfiction, cooking with his wife, and just enjoying the journey of life.

“I thoroughly believe God put me hear to solve meaningful problems alongside great people. My favourite scripture is Isaiah 1:19 - If you're willing and obedient, you will eat the good of the land.” - Michael Donauer

Gwen Dueck

True Leader

Gwen leads with a heart for advocacy and social justice on our Leadership Team at The Gathering. Her beliefs and actions in these two spaces are a direct reflection of the way she views the life and teachings of Jesus.

Saskatoon has been her longtime home since university and she is blessed to live and work on Treaty 6 land, homeland of the Métis. Since retiring, she volunteers with the Broadway Theatre and sits on two boards: St.Paul’s Hospital Foundation and Hope Restored Canada (an organization that provides holistic supports for those who have been sexually exploited or trafficked). As an advocate for social justice, she is compelled to create and hold space for the oppressed to be heard and build community with the disenfranchised in our city.

“The expression of my faith is anchored in loving and caring for the broad spectrum of people who are marginalized and also for those whom we lobby, naming our privilege, and courageously speaking truth to power - in community and in love"
