Pastor Gregory Vaal trusted the Lord as his Personal Saviour when he was five years old and at the age of twelve committed his life to God for active service. As a young person he was very involved in his local church, teaching Sunday School classes, organizing Vacation Bible Schools, etc. In 1998 Gregory graduated from The King’s University College in Edmonton with a Bachelor of Science and then went on to train as a Paramedic (ACP). While working in EMS for ten years he also took pastoral training through his home church Victory Baptist Church in Sherwood Park, Alberta. Pastor Vaal served at New Testament Baptist Church in Edmonton as Assistant Pastor from 2007 – 2009, and was formally ordained on February 28, 2009 at Victory Baptist Church.
In April 2009 Pastor Vaal and his family moved to Kamloops to assume the pastorate of Berean Baptist Church. He is passionate about sharing with people the incredible gift of Salvation and the transforming power of God’s Word. He has witnessed relationships restored, families strengthened, and lives mended, all as a result of individuals trusting Christ as their Saviour and then choosing to follow “God’s Way”.
