Our Minister

Rev Dr. Tim Archibald has been serving as minister at Kings Church since 1995 when he arrived as a New Church Development worker. Tim has grown along with the congregation into a collaborative style of leadership that places spiritual discernment and the corporate seeking of God’s will at the centre of this vibrant multi-age ministry.

A graduate of Acadia University, B.A (Hon.), Saint Mary’s University, M.A. and Knox College, University of Toronto, M.Div., Tim enjoys study and learning. In 2015 he completed a Doctor of Ministry degree at Acadia Divinity College, Acadia University with a specialization in the relationship between vision, effective spiritual formation and congregational vitality. Central to his practice of ministry is nurturing meaningful relationship with God in the context of a welcoming and supportive faith community, so that God’s glory can shine through us and our actions, for the good of the world.

In addition to having served as moderator of Halifax-Lunenburg Presbytery and of the Atlantic Synod, Tim presently serves the Presbyterian Church in Canada as a New Church Development Coach, as a member of the Committee on History and as a member of the Growing Churches Advisory Committee.

Mike vandenHof - Ordained 1989 (Kentville) - Inducted at Kings 2011. King’s church is a church that welcomes all to God’s table. I enjoy the fellowship and support of Session members, plus the whole church community.  When asked to be an elder, it was an opportunity for me to share the gifts God has given me with the community.

Christine Faour - Ordained at Kings in 2015 - From my first visit at King’s I felt welcomed, and in time, healed and finally, home.

Mary Montgomery - Ordained June 12, 2011 (Kings). For me the call to be an Elder at Kings is the call to give my best to Christ – to live out the Good News I believe with everyone in our church community, and in this way continue to learn and grow together in faith. It’s a way to express the joy and peace of being loved by God, and I thank God for this blessing every day.
