Jaesook Peters is likely the first person you will encounter at FMCW. She has been our Church Office Administrator since late 2013. She was born in South Korea and came to Canada in 2002 to study. This is where she met her husband James.
Jaesook grew up in the Catholic Church in Korea and had never encountered Mennonites in her upbringing. However she has found everyone at First Mennonite to be very friendly and welcoming and she feels at home here. She, James and their two children attend regularly and are very involved in the Church family.
In her spare time, she enjoys watching her children participate in their various activities.
David Driedger joined the ministerial team at First Mennonite Church in 2010. His main responsibilities lie in preaching, adult education and pastoral care. David was ordained in 2011.
David grew up on a farm south of Altona and as a young adult moved to the West End of Winnipeg where he commuted to Providence College and Seminary completing a BA and MDiv. During this time David met and married Chantal.
In 2005 they moved to Hamilton, Ontario where David studied briefly at McMaster University and began pursuing ministry in Mennonite Church Canada. David’s first pastorate was on a pastoral team at Hillcrest Mennonite Church in New Hamburg, Ontario. During this time he also finished an MA in spiritual care and psychotherapy at Wilfrid Laurier University.
David enjoys reading and writing and has published articles in Canadian Mennonite, Leader, Anabaptist Witness, Rhubarb, and The Conrad Grebel Review.
