After returning from a missions trip with Sudan Interior Mission, Pastor Alan served as Youth Pastor at Temple Baptist Church in Cambridge, Senior Pastor at Shenstone Baptist Church in Brantford and now is a vital part of our Pastoral Team at Central Baptist Church Brantford. Pastor Alan and Helen minister to the seniors through MAJORS, an opportunity for seniors to come and socialize, to hear a speaker and enjoy a catered luncheon together. Pastor Alan visits and prays with the sick in hospital and the shut-ins in their homes and seniors residences. Pastor Alan is also a great communicator of all the events and activities around Central. At heart, Pastor Alan is an evangelist who dedicates his life to sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.


Lars Janssen
Pastoral Intern


Lars and his wife, Sarah were married at Central Baptist Church in 2006. They have four children: Leilah, Gideon, Elorah, and Amos, who all attend Central Baptist Academy (CBA). Lars has been a member of Central since he was 16 years old and has served in the church in various capacities ~ sound and media volunteer, a Sunday School teacher for both youth and college and careers, and Deacon. Over the past couple of years, God allowed a desire to grow in Lars’ heart to minister to God’s people as a pastor. In September 2019, Lars, a former Tool and Die Maker, is currently enrolled in a Graduate Certificate of Theological Studies at Heritage Seminary in Cambridge. At Central, Lars has been teaching through the book of Job at Wed. Prayer Meetings and will soon lead an Adult Sunday School class. In 2020 Lars will be team-preaching with the other pastors through the Book of Mark. Lars & Sarah and family look forward to what God will do in their lives during this two-year internship and in the years that follow.
