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.

  • Kelly Craig

    Property Manager

    Kelly has been involved at Kuriakos since he worked on projects with his dad.

    He's looking forward to sharing his skills and passion with our team and community. With an eye for details, a heart for service, and a yard full of goats and chickens, we're thrilled to have Kelly and his wife Anissa joining our staff team.

  • 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!

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 months have been rocky for him. In February 2020, he was diagnosed with a challenging brain tumour and has stepped away from his role at Kuriakos for treatment and care. In classic Rudy style, he continues his daily ministry to patients and staff in the Devon hospital.

While Rudy receives care for his illness, he continues to speak with joy and gratitude about the community at Kuriakos (and to provide suggestions for the maintenance of our facilities!).

On October 9, the Board of Kuriakos presented Rudy with the Service Award, for "living out the Spirit of Kuriakos".

We ask for prayers for Rudy and his caregivers, and for our shared communities. Through it all, Rudy has reminded us that "God is good."
