Meet the Pastoral Team
We are blessed to have a wonderful group of pastors who bring a variety of gifts to the service of our congregation.
Patrick Preheim, Co-Pastor
I was raised on a small farm near the town of Henderson, Nebraska (USA). After a B.A. in history, a year of voluntary service, three years of Divinity study, and a marriage, my wife Patty and I spent ten years in Minneapolis, Minnesota co-pastoring Faith Mennonite Church. In 2007 we relocated to Saskatoon. Since then I have been shoveling snow, enjoying my bike commute to church, and feeding my wife with the best locally harvested produce in the world. Patty continues her ministry as pastor at Osler Mennonite Church.
Susanne Guenther Loewen, Co-Pastor
Raised mostly in Winnipeg, I've spent time living in Ontario while studying theology and contributing to the Mennonite church through preaching, teaching, and writing. I've been co-pastor at NPMC since 2016 and am passionate about the church as a community of God's peace and justice or shalom: an inclusive and authentic community in which we can experience the grace and presence of God together, a community which strengthens us to live out our faith in our daily lives. I also enjoy a good cup of coffee, knitting, and spending time with my spouse and two kids.
I grew up in Hepburn Saskatchewan, before travelling to British Columbia to meet my spouse (Becca) and get my degree. I spent three wonderful years on Vancouver Island before the frigid weather of Saskatchewan called me home. I started at NPMC in the fall of 2022, and I am very passionate about providing a safe place for people to explore their faith. I enjoy playing soccer, reading, exploring new hobbies, and spending time with my people and my animals.
