Pastoral Team


We all need a little guidance sometimes.  As a church, we at Lao Canadian Evangelical Mennonite Church need someone to guide and encourage us too.  We've got three great pastors to help us.


Chinda KommalaChinda Kommala helped to plant LCEMC with pastor Dale Bauman, and has been preaching, counselling, addressing prayer concerns, and giving guidance since 2004. He is the main Lao speaker, and will do the translating services during English sermons.
