Carol Engberts (Visitation Coordinator)In September, 2002 I married Gerald and moved to Woodstock from Burlington. We had met a while after the death of our first spouses. I entered into the church fellowship at Huron Park that he and his family enjoyed. From both marriages, I have 7 stepchildren, and, presently, 9 step grandchildren.
In 1999 I retired from The Halton District Board of Education and my long-time position as Principals' Secretary at Aldershot High School. I was trained as a member of their Tragic Events Response Team. In Burlington, I attended Compasspoint Bible Church for 20 years, serving in a variety of ministries including the Official Board.
Shortly after joining Huron Park Church, I was led by the Lord to volunteer to assist the staff in visitation of our sick and shut-ins. I feel very much at home in the environment at Woodstock Hospital. This ministry has expanded to involve grief and crisis support, particularly for women, and a new role for me as a spiritual coach.
I love getting to know people and helping them grow stronger in the Lord. I enjoy participating in and listening to musical groups, bible study, reading, crocheting and gardening.
The life experiences that God has brought me through have led me to a beautiful place in Ontario - the countryside of Oxford County and a joyful spiritual community that has a vision for helping folks come into a relationship with Jesus Christ and in finding Him, enjoy a reason to live and a passion to serve.
