Our Team

"It takes teamwork to make the dream work" 

Bridge Church is blessed with an incredible team of passionate men, women and children. In the years leading up to starting Bridge Church, we dreamed together about what church could be like around our kitchen tables, in our garages and in local coffee shops.
We pride ourselves in being a mostly-volunteer-led organization with dozens of volunteers in kids, worship, prayer, first impressions, media/IT, home group, youth and pastoral ministries. Out of a rag tag group of dreamers has emerged a council of elders and a staff committed to carry our shared God-given vision.  Check out the bios of our staff below:

Ryan Pedde

Lead Pastor

Hi there! My name is Ryan Pedde and I am the Lead Pastor of Bridge Church. In 2018, my wife Jessica, our three kids, and I moved to Fort Saskatchewan to start Bridge Church. Previously I had spent 15 years in church ministry in Edmonton. I have an M.Div with stops at Taylor Seminary & Calvin Seminary. What gets me up in the morning is my passion for connecting with God and proclaiming the Good News of the Gospel. In addition to being a Jesus-freak, I enjoy (may be an understatement) visiting major league baseball stadiums (25/30 so far!), reading, writing, kayaking and finding the best donair in town!

Raymond Evans

Associate Pastor

Hi! My name is Raymond Evans and I am the Community Formation and Youth Director of Bridge Church. I started attending Bridge Church in the winter of 2020. My wife Katie and I got married that summer and live in Fort Saskatchewan. I have been volunteering as a youth leader in one capacity or another for the previous 8 years. I am currently pursuing an M.Div through KAIROS University, with some online classes from Calvin Seminary coming up as well. I am passionate about building community centered on Christ, supporting youth, and doing it all so that the glory of God may be made known! In my spare time, I enjoy reading, board game nights, and science fiction. I would talk science fiction all day, but I don't have enough space here.

Hilary Warnock

Director of Childrens Ministry

Hi! I’m Hilary, the Director of Children’s Ministry here at Bridge Church. I was called into ministry over a decade ago and I have been serving in a church in some capacity ever since. I moved to Edmonton in 2014 to study at Vanguard. In 2018 I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Theology in youth, children’s, and family ministry. I have a passion for facilitating experiences where kids can encounter God. And have some fun! My prayer is that Bridge Kid’s is not just a place to have fun, but a place where kids build a solid faith foundation that will last their whole life! Outside of church you might catch me reading a book in a coffee shop, swimming laps, hiking, or hanging out with friends. My ultimate bucket list dream is to swim with sharks!  

Gavin Schaefer

Director of First Impressions and Next Steps

Hi! My name is Gavin Schaefer and I'm the Director of Online Ministries at Bridge church. Over the last five years I've been involved in the church in some way, shape, or form. In 2019 I graduated with my Bachelors of Theology from Vanguard College and have been pursuing a life of ministry ever since. I've been a part of Bridge church since our first Easter Drive-in service in 2019. I'm passionate about bringing the gospel to the lost and seeing the teachings of scripture applied in all areas of life! My favorite book is the book of Hebrews, it's a coffee book I might write in the future (or I felt like making a pun). I love dad jokes, reading, traveling, and brewing coffee with my Chemex.
