Meet the Staff

Rev. Michelle Dwyer

Lead Pastor 

Michelle longs for everyone to know the love of Father God, the friendship of Jesus, and the comfort and power of the Holy Spirit in their lives.  Her favourite part of pastoral ministry is teaching and equipping people to live out the Good News of the Gospel in their sphere of influence.  Michelle enjoys writing and communicating in a way that is relatable and relevant.  
Michelle and her husband Brian joined Westlife in the Fall of 2022.  Together they enjoy hiking and cycling in their free time as well as hanging out with their three young adult children.  She is very excited to get to know the Westlife family and would love to share coffee or a meal.

Pastor Quinn Johnston

Associate Pastor, Summit Youth & Young Adults

Experiencing God’s call into ministry after working in Insurance, Quinn’s heart is to see the youth and young adults of the Church encounter Jesus and share their faith with others. Quinn works with an incredible team of youth volunteers to create a space on Wednesday nights that is both fun and safe for students to share about their lives and faith. Quinn also runs our Young Adult Groups, which is a place to be fed both with food and the Word.
