Ministerial Staff

April 23, 2013

 

                                 Rev. Doug Craig and Rev. Milo Spooner Craig

 

We are pleased to be working together in a Team Ministry for Central United Church. We have a combined ministerial experience of 50 plus years. We have served in 2 previous Team ministries and many single ministries.
We are grateful to have served in Waskada, Lyleton, Pierson, Coulter, Goodlands, Belmont, Baldur, Glenboro, Holland, Cypress River, Morden, Darlingford, Cartwright, Mather in Mantoba and Yorkton, North Battleford and Lloydminster in Saskatchewan.
We are part time ministry people working in specific areas. Milo works 25 hours and Doug works 30 hours a week. We share Worship preparation and preaching. Doug is the primary pastoral care person visiting in homes, hospitals and nursing homes working alongside of many other volunteers. Milo is the one who deals with the administration pieces and the general operation of the church and its ministry.
We are hired through a yearly appointment which runs July 1 – June 30th. Each year it will be negotiated between the church and us whether we are appointed for an additional year.
We are looking forward to working on the mandate provided through our Visioning process results as we live out our day to day service to Central United church.

Milo and Doug

Mary Chambers (Neets) was born south of Brandon, moved with her Macleods’ family to Foam Lake, SK where she started school, then on to McCreary, MB and on to Brandon where she completed her schooling at Vincent Massey Collegiate. It seemed as though Macleods was in her blood as she worked there after school and on weekends until graduation, when she went to work in the Bank of Nova Scotia. After marriage and moving to a farming life and raising 4 children, she went to work as an Educational Assistant at Minto School. She has just retired after 24 years.
Mary started her career as organist in Boissevain at St. Paul’s United Church and after 19 years there, relocated to Elgin and Souris charge. Then the opportunity arose to be organist at Central United and she accepted the position with eagerness, an opportunity to play a ‘Casavant’. I enjoy my association with colleagues and the family of Central United and hope to continue to appease or meet the approval of the congregation and staff.
