Bill Horne - Pastor
Bill Horne came to Glen Acres as pastor in January of 1999. He and his wife Julie have two children – Rachelle and Andrew. Pastor Bill spends his spare time working on home projects, walking the family dog and cycling. He has received a Bachelor of Theology Degree from Emmanuel Bible College in Kitchener, a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Waterloo and a Master of Divinity Degree from McMaster University in Hamilton.
Bill is passionate about the need for North American Christians to become more self giving and less self focused. “We have been given so much in comparison to most of the world. With receipt of this gift comes responsibility to share and involve ourselves with the concerns of the world. Our reluctance to do so may well become the basis of a great indictment against us as a society.”
Pastor Horne would welcome your visit to Glen Acres. If you are considering a church home in K-W he sincerely hopes to meet you and share with you the Glen Acres vision.

Matt Galbraith - Pastor of Discipleship

After graduation, Matt worked for the House of Friendship in Kitchener, first as Social Services Intern and then as the Volunteer Coordinator of the Emergency Food Hamper Program.
He has been challenged by these words from the apostle John:
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother and sister in need, but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech, but with actions and in truth. (1 John 3:16-18 NIV)
