Hi-Way Pentecostal Church             

              Pursuing The Heart of God

Rev. Rob Esson  
(Lead Pastor)

Pastor Rob and his wife, Teri, began their ministry at Hi-Way Church on
July 19, 2015.  They have 3 daughters, Victoria (Andrew), and Pastor Rob & Teri's
newborn granddaughter Ella Joy;  Elizabeth; and MacKenzie, and are all in BC.

We anticipate growth in our lives, and our church, under their ministry; and we are
excited for what God has planned, as we reach deeper into the community of Ingersoll.

Jeremiah 3:15  "And I will give you shepherds after my own heart,
who will guide you with knowledge and understanding."  NLT

Pastor Jacqui Smith
(Student Life Ministries Pastor (on maternity leave)

Pastor Jacqui has a heart for the community. The church goes beyond the four walls of a building. She wants to see the lost come to Christ and see revival in our nation of Canada. Her greatest passion is to see the next generation pray without ceasing, worship fearlessly, and step out in faith courageously. She loves to pastor youth, kids, and connect with parents to partner in multi-generational ministry! She and her husband Anthony moved here to Ingersoll by the call of God from the Maritimes in March of 2018. Now along with their son Ezekiel, they truly believe that the best is yet to come!
