Mark and Wendy Murack - Lead PastorPastor Mark and Wendy Murack



Wendy and I were married in 1986 and have been blessed with one amazing daughter, Lauren. The foundation for my ministry came out of the poor decisions I made as a teenager and young adult, because I believed the lies of the enemy, even though I was raised in a Christian home where my parents took me to a good bible believing church. Although I wanted to go to heaven I believed the lie that I would have a lot more fun and enjoyment by living life my way. As a result I never fully surrendered to God so it opened a door for the enemy to cause a lot of unnecessary pain that I could have avoided had I truly trusted in God’s love for me.

As a teenager the enemy did his best so I would become offended with the church and walk down his path of pleasure including drugs and alcohol which only led to misery. Eventually I decided this wasn’t getting me where I wanted to go in life but was still looking for true happiness and love.
After a few years of marriage we separated for a year because we were looking to one another to provide the kind of love that only God can give. Through the help of a good counsellor we began to deal with our own wounds and emotional baggage and God supernaturally restored our marriage.
Both Wendy and I worked in business for many years before God moved us to working for him in the church. Wendy served God by working in a bank and as a sales representative in a number of major corporations. I worked as a manager and consultant for a number of different companies before starting my own consulting business, working with many major corporations. Eventually God moved me from serving Him in the world of business to the church where I served in various capacities for a number of years before coming to Peterborough 1996.

I enjoy reading, hunting, fishing and riding my Harley Davidson motorcycle, love trying new foods, and still have sky diving as one of the things on my bucket list! I enjoy listening to anything from gospel to Christian contemporary, rock, country classical or jazz. Wendy would describe herself as a foodie as well – loves trying new foods, loves painting, going to the theatre and her number one passion – going to Walt Disney world! Her bucket list would include going to every Disney park in the world.

We are passionately committed to equipping and empowering the body of Christ to be ministers in the places God has called them to serve – such as homes, neighbourhoods, and workplaces.

We are both ordained by Open Bible Faith Fellowship of Canada, and affiliated with Global Legacy, Catch the Fire - Friends in Harvest, and Willow Creek Association of Churches.

Roger Issa - Assistant PastorPastor Roger and Lessa Issa



Roger lives in Peterborough with his wife Lessa of 19 years and they have a wonderful 9-year-old daughter Victoria Grace. They are members of Christian Victory Church for the last 13 years serving in various capacities. Roger is an ordained minister and currently the director of Supernatural Evangelism; training people how to supernaturally share the Gospel of Christ.

Born in Lebanon to a loving Catholic family he left his home in the early 80’s at age 15, after nearly getting killed at least twice due to the civil war. Roger moved to the United States of America, where he attended school and lived with his older brother, who played a big role in leading Roger to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ at the age of 18. A year later he immigrated to Canada, but lived a backslidden life for the next 13 years. He pursued the world’s idea of success, and by their standards he was successful, yet his life was filled turmoil as the enemy tried to destroy him. He experienced relationship and a business failure, but worse, he was a crippled by fear and anxiety that robbed all peace from his life, almost destroying him.

Thirteen years ago Roger finally made a commitment to fully surrender his life. Jesus delivered him and filled him with His Spirit and he has walked in freedom from that fear ever since.

Roger’s gift is for evangelism, sharing Christ with signs and wonders following especially in the business community, where he works in real estate. Where ever Roger goes he releases the presence of the Holy Spirit, and as a result people are saved, healed and set free from all sorts of problems. People who receive from the grace God has placed upon Roger’s life testify how they now find it easier to talk to others about Jesus, and are also seeing supernatural miracles take place when they pray a simply prayer for others.
