We, Pastor Jason and Tracy Hinsdale, are excited to begin our ministry in Marysville. By way of background, I grew up on Grand Manan Island and Tracy in Moncton. We met and married while attending Kingswood University in Sussex. In May 2001, I graduated with a BA in Religious Studies (Pastoral Ministry) and Tracy with a BA in Christian Education.
I received my Master of Divinity Degree from Acadia Divinity College in Wolfville, NS, in 2004. Since my ordination in October 2005, we have pastored churches in New Brunswick and on Prince Edward Island.
We both became Christians by accepting Christ into our lives through accepting His forgiveness of our sin. Since being baptized at a young age, we have enjoyed being involved in ministry. I was first called to full- time ministry in grade 11.
The heart of our ministry is to help equip our church family to provide relevant ministry in today’s world. Whether young or young at heart, single, married or divorced, with children at home or not, our desire is that all experience a vibrant, life changing relationship with Jesus.
It is our desire, as the members of Marysville Baptist Church, that we all be involved in the life of our community – that by reaching out to the City of Fredericton and beyond and offering the love of Jesus we can help meet the physical and spiritual needs of those around us. On a daily basis, whether, at school, in the work place, at the hockey arena, at a family gathering, or simply hanging out with friends, we desire to share what Christ is doing in our lives.
We would love to have the opportunity to connect with you. If you don’t find us at the church office; you will likely find us in the community. Don’t be surprised if you find me at my ‘second office’ socializing at one of the local coffee shops. If you do, please don’t hesitate to introduce yourself. Both of us look forward to meeting and working with you.
