Our Ministry Team

“Growing together to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.”

The PAAC Leadership Team and Support Staff recognize the authority of God, and recognize ourselves as servants under  Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to the ministry of the Word through biblical teaching and overseeing church ministries, programs, and the general operations of the church.


Mark Bergen

Senior Pastor

Mark began his ministry at PAAC in September of 2010 after he and his wife, Sandra, moved to Prince Albert from Estevan.  Mark was raised in a small community in southwest Saskatchewan called Leader.  Sandra grew up in Southeast Saskatchewan on a farm in the Estevan area and they met in the middle at Bible College in Regina and have been in pastoral ministry since the early 90s.  Mark enjoys the journey of being a lifelong learner in areas of preaching and teaching God’s word, and leadership.  His greatest joy is seeing lives transformed by the Word of God and seeing others discover their life purpose in community.  He has a servant heart to provide direction, care, and leadership to PAAC.  Mark and Sandra love to travel and take road trips together.  Some of Mark’s favourite activities are hiking, jogging, cross country skiing, camping, and fishing.
