Mark & Karolyn Burch
North American Director
Mark & Karolyn have served in pastoral ministry for over 20 years. Their first senior pastor assignment was to a small rural congregation. Several years later, they moved to a large urban congregation, serving there for over 12 years. The experience of pastoring two long-established churches through refocusing and renewal of vision, as well as building a multi-site strategy for a 5-site local network is valuable, as C2C desires to be a catalyst for “planting and multiplying churches.” Mark travels extensively to build relationships with planters, network leaders, denominational and planting agencies, as well as serve the church through preaching and teaching. He has a strong passion for the Word of God, sound gospel preaching, empowering younger leaders, and seeing Canada reached through saturation church planting. Mark & Karolyn live in Vancouver, BC.

Ron served on the Church Planting BC leadership team (now C2C Network) for a number of years before joining the staff in 2011.

Paul & Jodi Winter
National Indigenous Ambassador
Serving God and His Church has been one of the great privileges of his life. He has been a Follower of Jesus for 21 years, and is blessed to be married to Jodi, have three children (Taylor, Darian, and Liam) and one grandson (JJ).
Paul is the National Indigenous Ambassador for C2C, as well as pastor at Living Word Temple and Turtle Island Community Church (both located in Winnipeg’s North End Winnipeg and largely First Nations). Here they learn about the love of Jesus and meet people where they are at in their journey with God. It’s important to be culturally informed and sensitive to the needs of First Nations church members. The relationships formed there reach beyond the north end community. First Nations people come to know Jesus and want to share His love to those in their home communities.
