Rev. Dr. John Pentland

John Pentland received his theological training at Emmanuel College at Queen’s (M.Div), Princeton University (MATS) and Chicago Theological Seminary (D.Min). John moved to Alberta in 1988 to serve in a rural charge with the United Church of Canada for 4 years. After his stint in rural ministry, John then served for 10 years in an urban setting, after which time he left the ministry to work for the Calgary United Way for 3 years. He made his way back into ministry with the UCC 10 years ago when he accepted the call to lead the congregation of Hillhurst United Church in Calgary, a charge which has seen the church grow from approximately 75 parishioners to a current membership of around 450.
