Our History

As far back as 1921, a group of Christians led by the Goods and the Fisks, with others in the Walkerton area, began to seek a place to worship together.  They prevailed upon Rev. George Bender, then pastor of the Kitchener Pentecostal Assembly to begin meetings
assisted by by Rev. W.L. Draffin.  Church services were started in the unused Evangelical Church on Colborne Street.
In 1984, the ground was broken and the property on Hwy 9 was dedicated for the erection of the new church building.  
By the spring of 1985 a new building was standing on the property with dedication services being held May 26th.

Pastor Lance and his lovely wife, Pastor Jasmine, are both on staff at WPC. They have two daughters, Lively Elizabeth Rock, who was born in September of 2018 and Lainey Jade Rock, who was born in February 2021.
Pastor Lance grew up in Walkerton where he enjoyed (and still does enjoy) playing hockey and tobogganing in the winter and playing catch, track and field, and running around town in the summer. Pastor Lance has a heart for this community so don’t be surprised if you see him around town, especially at Tim Hortons with his beloved dark roast double-double.
Pastor Jasmine loves meeting others in the community – she has a heart for meeting new moms in our area to connect with & loves to learn from those who are seasoned in their journey of parenthood. Pastor Jasmine can be found reading books (preferably touchy feely books), chasing her two little ones, or with an iced capp in her hands.
