Fred and Shireen

Pastor Fred and Shireen Sirett Fred and Shireen became Christians thirty years ago through a mainline denomination renewal movement. Several others did as well about the same time. Chauvin Gospel Centre began when people from renewal movements formed a body and embraced the mission of Jesus Christ. Fred and Shireen ministered for 25 years in other regions, but have always had a connection with CGC. Similar backgrounds and interests have made for an easy settling to leadership. They embrace the mission and vision of the church wholeheartedly- a Christian life is radical and requires us to be all in. The goal is to make fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ, and the ministry of the church is to impact whole families to grow to know Him and serve Him. While Fred is intensively passionate about the difference Jesus makes in one’s life, he speaks from the flavor of being a farmer, a dad, and one who found the goodness in God late in life. Jesus has come to give life and life more abundant to all those who receive Him. God’s invitation is for all to come to Him- you will always be welcome at Chauvin Gospel Centre.
