Pastors Jamie & Heather Paton serve on the teaching team of The Summit Church - Edmonton and have 5 children & 3 grandchildren. When Jamie was radically saved his heart instantly desired to unite believers to see revival sweep the nation of Canada. Along with his wife Heather, they began partnering their gift of faith with their heart for the nations by traveling to nations such as the US, Arctic, Rwanda, Uganda, and ministering to youth, young adults, and pastoral leadership training.
Jamie’s heart beats for the lost and leaders in the marketplace. He desires to see men and women equipped and released to use their gifts and talents to bring hope, healing & a moral shift to their spheres of influence. Heather carries many creative strategies to connect with those outside the walls of the church; ministering to inner city kids, running missional soccer and basketball leagues locally & overseas, developing sewing schools in Rwanda to break the cycle of poverty by equipping women with a business trade, partnering the gospel with student coaching in the arctic region schools, are examples of how she desires to engage cultures.
Carrying over 22 years in ministry, in 2009 The Lord called them to plant an inner city church in London, Ontario called The Sanctuary London where they were lead pastors for 10 years. Jamie & Heather together are now the directors of Builders Collab (Formerly Hope Farms) and lead a ministry called "Urban Drop” through The Summit Church. Being bi-vocational for many years has given them much vision for those working in societal spheres to be awakened to their vital role in societal reformation, and culture. We are very grateful they are now an important piece of our leadership team here at The Summit Church - Edmonton!
