Pastor

 Joash Schumpelt, MDiv

Hello! I'm Joash, pastor of Sovereign Community Church. I am an ordained minister with the Presbyterian Church in America . I'm also a husband, father of two crazy boys and a few chickens. 
 
I attended seminary at Regent College in Vancouver, BC while serving as a pastoral intern at Grace Vancouver Church (PCA). After earning my MDiv, I wanted to pastor in a small, rural community in Canada. An opportunity in Miramichi came up, and after a 10-day visit and much prayer, my wife Matthea and I felt led to make the cross-country move East. 
 
We've now been in Miramichi, NB for over 6 years and have been blessed with meaningful relationships across a variety of groups and community organizations around the River. 
My wife and I have truly grown to love this community, and we share the passion to see it grow and flourish. For the people of Miramichi, our hope is to see each individual  experience the transformative work of Christ. For the community, our desire is to see gospel-renewal everywhere, spiritually, personally, environmentally, economically. 
 
When I'm not at the church, I'm hanging out at Mill Cove Coffee, spending time with my family and planning my next foray into the world of backyard chicken farming. Our boys, Coram (6) and Cort (4) regularly remind us of our Father's delight in us as we spend summers beachcombing and winters buried in snow.
