Welcoming new Minister at the Steinbach United Church

Posted in Steinbach United

We have good news! Please welcome Rev Paul DuVal!


Paul is an ordained clergy person who has recently retired from Alberta and moved to Winnipeg. He has 35 years of experience, with 22 of those being in congregational ministry in united churches in Alberta. The other 13 years he was on staff at the conference office offering support to clergy and congregations. Paul will be with us for the next five and a half months in a short term appointment for 10 hours per week. We call this “Gap Ministry”. He will be with us as we continue to explore shared ministry possibilities or look for a long term person. There is always the possibility of extending the time with him.


Paul is very much a people person and looks forward to getting to know all of you. He will be leading worship about once per month, attending to urgent pastoral needs, as well as doing some visiting. His major role will be to enable us to continue to live out our statement of commitment and our ministry in this community, focusing on building community, reaching out and growing spiritually. We look forward to working with him!
