Prayer Request - Rudy undergoing Treatment

  • Art Weiss

    Executive Director

    Art has served in a variety of camp positions at a couple of camps, including ED, as well as serving as pastor to a couple of ELCA congregations. Art has a background in accounting, preaching, administration, and having a great laugh. You'll hear it when you meet him!

  • Paul Kopjar

    Assistant Director

    Paul has been involved in the Kuriakos community for many years, most recently in his position as Assistant Director. Programming, staffing, marketing, he does it all.

    Have a question? I bet Paul knows the answer.

  • Program Director

    Kendra has a long history in camp ministry, having worked at 8 other camps before joining our full-time team. Included in that, Kendra served as an intern here at Kuriakos in the fall of 2011. Kendra's passion is to see children, youth and families grow in their faith, and to assist young leaders as they develop.

  • Rudy Lange

    Property Manager

    Rudy is excited to be working at Kuriakos. He’s says it’s a dream job, having worked in maintenance for 20+ years. Rudy previously did maintenance at a campground, and is looking forward to similar aspects of community in his role here, as well as opportunities for ministry within his work. Rudy loves fishing and repairing small engines, and is a member of the Christian Motorcycle Association.

  • Gail Berg

    Bookkeeper and Housekeeper

    Gail started out as housekeeper 22 years ago, and, after years of involvement in other capacities, has found herself back in her starting (and starring!) role. We sure appreciate her involvement in this ministry - what a great family to have as neighbours!

  • Madi Alexandriuk

    September 2019 - Madi's away on leave to spend time with her new babies! 

    We're excited to see them as they grow.

    Madi joined the year-round Kuriakos team in the fall of 2017.

    Moving here from Edmonton, she brings along her husband Nick, Great Grandma Georgette, dog and cat. She has her Culinary Arts Diploma and loves to cook and go on adventures!

Request for Prayers

Rudy has been our Property Manager (and part-time auctioneer) since Fall 2017, and not a day goes by that he doesn't say "This is the BEST JOB EVER". We're pretty lucky to have him fill this important role in our community.

The last few weeks have been rocky for him. He has been diagnosed with a challenging brain tumour and has stepped away from his role at Kuriakos for evaluation and treatment. In classic Rudy style, he continues his daily ministry to patients and staff in Edmonton and Leduc hospitals.

We ask for prayers for Rudy and his caregivers, and for our shared communities. Through it all, we are reminded of God's promise to be with us.
