Our Pastor’s Family
The Elias Family
The Elias family looks forward to meeting you!
Pastor Timothy and his wife Joanna have been blessed with two sons, Joshua (2016) and Jeremiah (2018). Joshua enjoys being outside, fishing, camping, watching big machines, playing “farm,” exploring, and swinging in the yard. Jeremiah loves his teddy bears, driving his tricycle, singing, and playing with his toys. God has truly blessed the Elias family by calling them to be a part of Victory Baptist Church. Whether you just need someone to talk to, or are looking for scripturally based counsel, Pastor Timothy would love to hear from you.
Joanna, Pastor Timothy’s Wife
Pastor Timothy’s ministry is not considered complete without mention of his wife, Joanna. Joanna was born and raised in a rural area of Southern, Manitoba. She grew up in a Christian home and her family attended the Pembina Valley Baptist Church. She enjoyed attending the children’s Sunday School and Master Club. Around age nine she remembers trying to do her schoolwork but was unable to concentrate. She was under deep conviction of her sin and realized her personal need of a Saviour. She then went to a quiet room, knelt and asked Jesus to forgive her of her sins and come into her heart and save her. Since then, she has had the privilege and opportunity to serve in her local church in the music ministry, Vacation Bible School (VBS), and other church events through the years. She feels privileged to be called alongside her husband to serve the Lord in Kenora.
When Joanna is not playing the piano, you can find her enjoying her time with family and friends, horseback riding, or fishing!
