Elaine Vanderwerf is St. Timothy’s Family Ministries Lay Pastoral Associate. She has an MDiv in Youth and Family Ministry from Tyndale Seminary and many years of experience in ministry with children and youth. She has served in a variety of different settings, always living out her passion to help children and young people grow in their faith, develop a life of worship, and live in the deep and abiding love of Jesus.
Elaine loves reading books and watching movies, especially science fiction and fantasy. She plays piano, guitar, mandolin, ukulele and harp: she also paints, draws and writes stories, poems and songs. Elaine loves video chats with her nieces and nephews in Scotland and is the proud “pet mom” to Caleb the dog, Sophie and Kayla the cats.
If Elaine is not at St. Timothy’s – she is probably at the other St. Timothy’s (North Toronto) as she shares her gifts and time between the two communities.
