Introducing Andy

Hi, my name is Andy Wiebe. I’ve been a pastor of a small church in a small town since 1996. I’m presently in my third small church. Bow River Alliance Church is in Carseland, Alberta, Canada. The church has an average attendance of 65 in a town of 650.

I enjoy the slower life of a small town and the opportunity to lead a small group of people whom I know. I also enjoy the opportunity to get to know so many people in town personally by getting involved in community activities. The fishbowl experience can be daunting at times, yet the personal touch with your own community can be rewarding.

I want to share some of what I’ve learned and am learning through my experiences.

Please feel free to leave a comment on my thoughts. I’d love to start a conversation and we can encourage each other and share ideas. Or, if you prefer email you can connect with me at
