Pastor Jeff Germo - Lead Pastor
Pastor Jeff has been with RBC since the fall of 2008. Jeff and Ruth moved from the prairies (Calgary) in 2002. They love their new life on the coast. Jeff’s hobby is photography. You can take a look at some of his photos at http://www.pbase.com/jeffgermo. Both he and Ruth love the out of doors and enjoy hiking, camping, and walking at Boundary Bay. Jeff’s passion, though, is to see men, women, and children growing in maturity in their relationship with Christ. He strongly believes that God has called the church to reach out to those outside its walls with His love, mercy, grace, and hope, and that each person in the church has been gifted in a unique way to carry out this mission.

Pastor Kamal Ghamal - Associate Pastor
Pastor Kamal was a principal of a high School in Nepal prior to his theological studies at Sydney Missionary & Bible College, Australia, after which he has had extensive involvement as an associate pastor of youth and young adults at Richmond Baptist Church in Canada since July 2006. Kamal is very passionate and excited to see how God has been moving RBC toward both global and local mission.

Moreover, He believes that God has given RBC a clear vision to reach out the local community with the love of Jesus Christ. Kamal’s interests include jogging, hiking, meeting new people, and spending time with his family. He and his wife Rajani have 2 sons.
