Lead Pastor – January 2019

Tim Bergmann has accepted the call to be ACC’s new lead pastor. Tim’s start date at ACC will be January 2, 2019. Some of Tim’s favorite things about ministry are being with people and dreaming great big dreams of the future together. He loves how God chooses to work through us even though we are broken and fallen, and how God uses His word to comfort and guide and encourage and convict.

Tim and his wife, Jennifer, are very excited about moving into the community of Sylvan Lake, and becoming a part of life at ACC!

Brian Engel

My wife, Pam, and I live in Sylvan Lake with our 4 young children. We have called ACC our home church for over 20 years. I work in the landscape and construction industry. The Sylvan Lake Alliance Church has greatly impacted both myself and my wife, as we started attending in our teen years. We are grateful for this church family as we continue to now raise our family. I have enjoyed serving in several different ministries over the years, and most recently am involved in a men’s life group. I will be serving on the Board of Elders until September, 2019.

My wife Janice and I moved to Sylvan Lake in January, 1998 and started attending ACC on a regular basis in 1999. We have a son and daughter, and at the time are semi-empty-nesters, as one child works away, and the other attends Mount Royal University. I serve on the board as Treasurer until September, 2018.

I moved to Sylvan Lake in 2001 and have been attending ACC ever since. Myself and my wife, Jenny, and our three children – Rosyn, Penny and Henry – were sent out by ACC to serve in full-time ministry with YWAM in Van­couver from 2013 – 2015. We are so glad to be back in Sylvan and serving in the church once again!


Frank Wiebe

Hi, I’m Frank Wiebe, the current chairman of the Board of Elders. Sherry and I have been married for 33 years and have 3 married children and 7 grandchildren. We have a small, family run construction company that does a variety of work, from interior finishing to project management, and everything in-between. Sherry and I are both very passionate about our work with TOUCH Ministries and we love the opportunity to serve in the church and abroad. I’m an avid hunter and love to fish as well. James 1: 5 is a verse that I use often to lead me in my prayer for wisdom as I serve our Lord and Saviour.
