The staff of Anchor Baptist Church are critical to the success of the Lord’s work in Burnaby.
Ben Turner – Pastor
In June of 2001, Pastor Ben Turner and his wife held Anchor Baptist Church's first service in Burnaby, British Columbia. Starting with a crowd of 23 people, the Lord has used Pastor Turner to plant this work in the Greater Vancouver area for His honour and glory. Under God’s blessing, Anchor Baptist Church has grown into a family of believers who seek to honour and lift up the Lord. Pastor Ben Turner and his wife Becky are blessed with three children: Caleb, Brianna, and Emma.
Nathan Ravert – Assistant Pastor
Bro. Nathan Ravert serves as the assistant pastor of Anchor Baptist Church. A graduate of Faithway Baptist College in Ajax, Ontario, he truly has a genuine heart for God and for young people. Following graduation, he served as an assistant pastor in Oshawa, Ontario, and also as youth pastor in West Seneca, New York. In early 2009, the Lord led Nathan and his family to move to British Columbia to work on staff alongside Pastor Turner. Today, Bro. Ravert serves as the church choir director and youth leader. His greatest passions are to follow the Lord’s will and to see the youth of Anchor Baptist walk with God for the rest of their lives. Nathan and his wife Rachel have three children: Joshua, Matthew, and Julia.
