Martin Nieuwets

Pastor of Family Life Phone: 905-937-5300 x219

Martin was born in St. Catharines and from a young age saw how his parent’s faith influenced them to overcome some of life’s challenges. This would draw him to personal faith in Jesus. While on a work trip at age 15 to Northern Ontario he felt a desire to full-time church work. This would inspire him to attend Emmanuel Bible College.

Martin and Alison have served as missionaries/pastors in Northern Ireland and served for a decade at a church in Toronto before coming to Bethany.

Martin is committed to building up the church through caring for families. He strives to be a positive influence in the lives of students and helping them find a place to belong and become all God has created them to be.

While in his spare time, you’ll find Martin with his family, watching volleyball games, or enjoying a night out with friends.
