New MC Canada Administrative Staff Member

Carolina Gouveia Santana is providing administrative support in areas of church leadership since mid-April. Specifically she supports Mennonite Church Canada’s ministry of Company of 1000, Ministerial Leadership Inventories, and provides administrative support to the Church Leadership Ministers Group. Carolina is working out of the Mennonite Church Canada office. Carolina lives in Winnipeg and is part of the Home Street Mennonite Church.

Carolina writes, "I grew up attending a Mennonite Brethren Church in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and I left my country 8 years ago to serve with Mennonite Central Committee in Colombia. Since then, I've been learning and being inspired by the Mennonite commitment to social justice as followers of Jesus. I live in Winnipeg with my partner Trevor, my son Joaquim, my dog, and my cats. In my free time (which is almost nonexistent with an 8-month-old), I enjoy connecting with friends, knitting, reading, and spending time outdoors (when it's not minus 40 degrees). I look forward to working for Mennonite Church Canada in this new role, sharing my experiences and abilities, and learning from my new colleagues and friends."
