Hi, I’m Marty Levesque. Originally from Ottawa, I currently live in Waterloo, Ontario. For 15 years I worked as an automotive mechanic while putting myself through school to earn a BA in Philosphy with a Minor in history from Carleton University.
After finishing my degree, I left Ottawa and my job to pursue a Masters of Divinity at Huron University College. In the spring of 2010, I graduated from Huron and was ordained to the Deaconate. Over the next four years I pursued an MA in Theology part time from Huron University College and successfully defended my thesis in September of 2014. My thesis can be found at the University of Western Ontario Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository.
I first began ministry Counterpoint Church, a new church plant in Brantford On in 2009. After successfully planting the congregations I moved to St. Andrew Memorial, London, where I was appointed Deacon in Charge in the fall of 2010. On the Feast of St Andrew I was ordained to the priesthood, and in February 2011 inducted as rector of St Andrew Memorial, London. I served that parish community for 5 1/2 years.
Recently, I took up ministry at All Saints Waterloo on May 1st, 2016 where I am leading the community through a new building project.
The focus of my ministry and studies has become increasingly centred on place and space: the church and its place in modern society. I am also interested in social media, marketing and church growth.
