Pastor Alan Wachob grew up in western Pennsylvania (yes, he’s a big Steelers fan!). He received Christ at an early age and felt a call to full-time ministry as a teenager. After graduating high school, he began his Biblical and Pastoral studies at Trinity Bible College in Ellendale, North Dakota. After 2 years at Trinity, he moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma and completed his studies at Rhema Bible Training College, graduating in 1990.
While at Rhema, Alan met his wife Sherri and they were married in Toronto in the fall of 1991. Alan accepted an associate pastor role at The City Church Of Mississauga, working alongside Senior Pastor, Dr. Earlby Coulter. Alan was on staff at City for the next 16 years, faithfully leading many of its ministries and departments while there.
In 2006, Alan felt God asking him and Sherri to begin and pastor a new church in Milton. After careful consideration and prayer, he committed to stay in Canada and plant True North Church which began weekly Sunday services in 2008. Alan loves his American roots, but he also loves his adopted country of Canada. Alan and Sherri have 2 wonderful children, Sam (24) and Sydney (21), and they are all proud to call Milton, Ontario their home.
Alan’s communication style is casual, positive, and humorous and has a way of making complex truths simple. God is using him to inspire people every weekend with clear Biblical teaching that is practical yet gets to the heart. He wants to see people from all walks of life grasp God’s great plan for their lives.
