Pastors Orlando and Elizabeth Pule Depart Ontario Conference Seventh-day Adventist Church to Embark on New Ministry Journey in Alberta Conference

Posted: June 26th, 2023

The Ontario and Alberta Conferences are releasing a joint statement recognizing that Alberta Conference voted to extend a call to the Pules, inviting them to join their pastoral team.

After faithfully serving the Ontario Conference Seventh-day Adventist Church for the past 18 years, Pastors Orlando and Elizabeth Pule, a dedicated husband and wife ministry team, have accepted the call to join the Alberta Conference. Their relocation marks a significant milestone in their spiritual journey as they bring their considerable leadership and dedication to a new part of God's vineyard.

During their time in Ontario, Pastors Orlando and Elizabeth Pule have been instrumental in building up churches in the GTA and Ottawa. For the last six years, they have jointly led the Family, Women's, Men's, and Singles ministries at the Ontario Conference. With their strong faith, compassion, and easygoing style, the Pules have touched the lives of numerous individuals, helping them navigate the challenges of modern life, especially during COVID. Together, they have made an outstanding contribution to Ontario that will leave a lasting legacy.

The Pules, proud parents of three sons, Gabriel, Isiah, and Samuel, have become beloved figures within the Ontario Conference, and their departure will undoubtedly be felt by all who have had the privilege of knowing them. However, their departure brings with it a sense of excitement and anticipation as they embark on their new ministry roles in Alberta.

Effective September 1, 2023, Pastor Orlando Pule will assume the position of Lead Pastor at College Heights, while Pastor Elizabeth Pule will serve as Associate Pastor. Reflecting on their departure, Ontario Conference President, Pastor Jakov Bibulovic, expressed his gratitude for the Pules' dedicated service and their positive impact. "Ontario will miss their passionate and family-focused ministry," Pastor Bibulovic stated. "We wish them well as God leads them to impact lives for His glory in Alberta."
