In the fall of 2015, Rob Cave was installed as the district superintendent. Rob and his wife, Cherise, have 20 years of pastoral experience in rural and urban settings in senior, associate and solo pastor positions. Rob follows in the footsteps of former Prairie District superintendents Tim Seim, Ken Lawrence, Tony Hanson and Jim Westman.
District Superintendent – Rob Cave firstname.lastname@example.org
Rob grew up on a farm near North Battleford, SK. He gave his life to Christ at the age of 21 and attended Winnipeg Bible College, where he met Cherise, who was from Rugby, North Dakota.
Following nine years in Winnipeg, Rob and Cherise served as pastor of Highland Park EFC (New Norway, AB) and director of congregational life at Johnston Heights EFC (Surrey, BC). They concluded 10 years as senior pastor of Christ Community Church (Kamloops, BC) in 2015 prior to their move to Okotoks, AB to accept the position of Prairie District Superintendent.
Rob and Cherise have been married for 27 years and have three young adult sons. Their boys have been very active in sports (baseball, soccer, volleyball and basketball), playing on school, regional and club teams. Like many families, they have spent a lot of time traveling and creating memories around a sporting culture, which is challenging but rewarding.
Rob has a deep desire to encourage and support ministry-minded individuals and couples who are on the front lines of ministry life seeking to know God more deeply, pursue His heart, care for and pray for people, while waiting on God to answer, intervene, and change hearts.
Rob writes, “I love the Church. I love pastoring in the Church. My desire has always been to invest myself fully in the work of Christ, helping people come to know, love and serve Jesus. I desire to assist pastors and churches in the Prairie District of the EFCC to see the joy of investing themselves fully in reaching all the people they can for Christ.”
District Church Planting – Tim Seim (email@example.com)
Tim served the Prairie District as superintendent
for 18 years, retiring in 2015. Prior to that, he pastored EFC churches in Lethbridge and Abbotsford. He has joined the Prairie District staff once again, on a part-time basis, to assist with church planting projects, working from his home office. Tim and his wife, Lynn, have been married for over 50 years and have four daughters and 14 grandchildren. They are originally from Spokane, Washington, and continue to enjoy family relationships on both sides of the border.
Office Assistant – Tracy Morris (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Tracy is from Zimmerman, Minnesota and lived there until her early 20s. She studied psychology at Trinity Western University, where she met her husband, Steve, who was from Abbotsford, BC. They have been married for 27 years and have three daughters (14, 18 and 21). Tracy worked at Abbotsford EFC for several years and then spent two years as assistant to the president at the Evangelical Free Church of Canada home office. Following the birth of baby #1, she worked part-time from home for the EFCC and continues to do so today in a very limited capacity. The Morris family moved to Okotoks in 2008, and Tracy began working part-time for Okotoks EFC and the Prairie District (one desk, two roles) in 2011.
