Lead Pastor J (Jonathan) Janzen
J Janzen has been a pastoral elder at Highland since January 2008. He helps to facilitate weekly worship, teaching, and caregiving.
He has worked as a radio producer, been the editor of two magazines, and served as an instructor at Columbia Bible College (www.columbiabc.edu) and Canadian Mennonite University’s Outtatown program (www.outtatown.ca).
J earned undergraduate degrees from both the University of Winnipeg and Concord College. He holds a Master of Christian Studies degree from Regent College. His thesis, “A Complicated Peace: The Problem of Passivism in Canadian Anabaptist-Mennonite
Peacemaking,” explored ways in which various perspectives on violence, force, pacifism, nonresistance, and love have undermined Canadian Mennonites’ efforts at peacemaking.
When J isn’t doing pastor stuff, he’s likely reading or exploring the great outdoors with his wife and four children.
