Wendy gives leadership to the aspects of church life that involve caring for others – welcoming those who are new to the church and making sure those who are going through difficult seasons are supported. Wendy’s favorite pastime is spending time with her family.  She has two beautiful grown daughters, a wonderful son Benjamin who is 13, as well as her 3 adorable grandchildren.  Wendy has a passion for home improvement projects and volunteering her time to those in need.  Of late, she has been enjoying the Bible Study Fellowship in Midland. Wendy’s primary goal in life is following Jesus – shining His light wherever she goes and His love in everything she does.

Gabrielle Cook

Director of Communications

G’Day! I’m Gabrielle Cook, a native Australian, and the Director of Communications here at Aldersgate Church, a place where people know Jesus and make Him known. I have the pleasure of serving in an administrative and marketing capacity for the church. People are the best part of my day. Hearing peoples stories, learning about their lives, and watching them explore Jesus in new ways make my work here valuable. When I’m not in the office, I’m usually hiking, writing, knitting or performing music.

Julie MacLauchlan

Aldersgate Midland  Administrative Assistant

Julie is responsible for making sure our church runs smoothly both on Sunday and on a daily basis.  Julie came to Midland from Sarnia, Ontario in 1994. After volunteering in the Aldersgate Church office for four years, she decided she liked it well enough to make a career of it.  Julie says, “It is my pleasure to serve God’s people through careful attention to the business side of His Church.”

Outside of work Julie enjoys paper crafts (scrapbooking and card making) and tutoring dyslexic children in reading through The Legacy Center in Midland. Other interests include concerts by local musicians, volunteering at a local senior living community, reading and garage sale-ing.
