Sue Chilvers

Church Administrator

Sue Chilvers joined FCI in June 2010, after a successful career as an Operations Manager. Her past involvement with church administration, accounting, event planning and ministry development allowed her to start volunteering and serving at FCI in various capacities. In October 2013 she was asked to join the FCI Church Board as an Elder, and then in September 2017 she was asked to join the FCI Staff as full-time Administrator. Sue’s ability to see the bigger picture and then break it down into practical solutions gives her the capacity to create new tools/processes which allow the staff and ministry leaders to function more effectively in their roles/ministries.


Amanda Robertson has been involved in youth ministry for the past 4 years and is a graduate of the Child & Youth Worker Program at Sheridan College. She is very passionate about working with teens and their families. Amanda and her husband Daniel pastor together and both have hearts for ministry. Their main vision is to see the youth come into a relationship with Jesus, to create community amongst them, and to see them grow in truth, and have fun!

Laura Patell

Children's Pastor

Laura Patell is our Children’s Pastor at Freedom Centre. Laura, her husband Jon, and their three amazing kids have been a part of the Freedom Centre family for the past three years. One of the things that drew their family to the church was the obvious value that Freedom Centre has for children, they are made to feel very loved, very welcome and an important part of the church family. Laura is passionate about raising up children to know who they are in Christ and who He is in them, to know that they can do all things in Him.
