Elder (with wife, Pauline)

Hello, my name is John Klassen, I am honoured to serve at Redemption London as an Elder.  I am married to Pauline and we have 3 grown daughters, who are now raising their families.


I am a Bus driver for the London Transit Commission, since 2006. We are very active in our children’s and grandchildren’s lives and feel very blessed by God with our family. Some prominent interests of mine are physical fitness and being a motorcycle enthusiast.


When this church began in 2000, as SouthWest Community Church, we felt led by the Lord to move on from our former church and join this exciting new beginning in order to be used by God and to watch and be apart of this new work.


Besides my role as an elder, we serve as Small group leaders, marriage mentors and prayer ministry leaders.  We are truly blessed and thankful to God to be able to share our passion for serving Christ in His church.


Just one of many verses that strengthens my heart would be:
1Cor. 15:58  “Therefore my brothers, stand firm, let nothing move you, always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord because you know your labour in the Lord is not in vain.”
