Be The Church Fellowship

John Schaffner

Church Planter

Winnipeg, MB, Canada

John first came to Winnipeg in 1996 on a summer ministry assignment and he fell in love with the people and the city. This is supernatural, given that he is from Arkansas! John and Amy were married in 1999 and moved to Winnipeg not long after to serve in youth ministry. They left in 2002 but always wanted to come back and the Lord opened that door in 2017 and this time they moved with their 3 kids—Sadie, Jack and Walt. The Schaffner family started Be the Church Fellowship in 2019 and have a vision to reach Winnipeg with the love of Jesus; to “Be the Church” to our city.
