Eddy de Zwaan

Associate Pastor

I started at CAC as the associate pastor on September 1, 2015. This has been a change for me as most of my career life has been in the public sector working a 9 to 5 job. I am blessed to be here with my wife Donelda and our two grown boys Joel and Michael. I love exploring God’s amazing creation, so to live in Cranbrook is a huge blessing and we are just beginning to discover all it has to offer.

I graduated with a degree in theology in 1994 from Canadian Bible College and have spent the past 20 plus years in lay ministry. I served primarily in areas of small groups, worship, & the elder’s board. Over the past 13 years I have had the privilege of serving at Chilliwack Alliance Church. I love to serve Jesus and His Church, and encouraging and supporting people in their walk with God. My role at CAC will be in areas of small groups, shepherding and mentoring - including our youth and young adults. My heart is to come along side these ministries and give pastoral care to them so that they can be more effective in their roles. I am so thankful to God for leading me and my family to Cranbrook Alliance and I rely totally on Him each step of the way. (2 Cor. 12:9 But He (Jesus) said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me”).

I look forward to meeting you.
