Corey began his time at Emmanuel back in 2007 in the area of Youth Ministry. That role has morphed over time into Family Ministries, which Corey oversees. Corey is married to Stephanie who teaches at Winkler Elementary School and together they have three beautiful, big brown eyed boys named Hudson, Benjamin and Lane. At Emmanuel Corey spends his time in the areas of Next Generation Ministry which includes ministry to Children, Students, Emerging Adults and Families. Corey is always searching for the next great adventure, the next best book, a deeper conversation, a Winnipeg Blue Bombers win (PTL for 2019) and the greatest of coffees. Corey also spends time managing his families century farm. His motto: Person // Partner // Parent // Pastor - always in that order.
Lois joined the Pastoral Team in September 2023, after more than ten years in pastoral ministry in two other churches. Her life has been marked by moving around, so it is no surprise that she met her husband of 15 years while she was teaching at a seminary in Nigeria. Both Tromhan and Lois have an education background, which lays a substantial foundation for their world views. Within the team at Emmanuel, Lois uses her passion for communicating and connecting with people by hearing their stories and working towards an understanding of how God may be working. In addition to loving the Church, she also loves playing tennis with Tromhan and kayaking or paddleboarding, and cheering on the Blue Bombers, no matter what the outcome.
Connie started her position in July 2013. She is that friendly smile when you first walk into the office. She is married to Jake and has 3 adult married children and three precious grandsons. Her interests include playing with her grandkids, walking her dogs, puzzling and hiking in the hills. Her kids think she is an "over the top" Winnipeg Jets fan. Feel free to call or email the office and she'd be happy to help you.
Stephanie, moved to Winkler with her husband and two sons in 2015. After exploring different churches in the area her family decided to call Emmanuel home. She enjoys the friendships and support she has found at Emmanuel. She is originally from Florida but through her kids love of hockey has learned how to “tape a hockey stick” and not freeze in a rink. She enjoys building community and watching her kids grow spiritually and emotionally. She is excited to be a part of the family ministries team at Emmanuel and to see what other blessings God has planned for her life.
