Pastor Larry & Connie Hasmatali

Lead Pastor

Larry is a respected and gifted minister of the gospel, holding two leadership positions within the Church of God.  In 1996, he became the Lead Pastor of Church of God Moose Jaw.  In 2012, he was appointed as Administrative Bishop for the Church of God in Western Canada.  He serves in both of these roles with great devotion and passion for leadership development and church growth. Larry and his wife, Connie, have made their home in Moose Jaw since 1986.  They have a son, Brandon, and a daughter, Maddison.
"In March 1996, we were given the opportunity to pastor this amazing church.  One of the biggest lessons 2020 has taught us is not to take the good things in life for granted.  One of those good things in my life is fellowshipping with our church family.  Connie and I are thankful and honoured to serve with such a dedicated and passionate leadership team and congregation, and we're excited to see what God has in store for the future."
- Pastor Larry

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,
a worker who does not need to be ashamed, and who correctly handles the word of truth.
2 Timothy 2:15
