Dan Brown

Reverend Daniel G. Brown, BA, MDiv, MBA​

Since 2017 it has been my honour and privilege to serve as pastor in this wonderful family of faith. It would be my further honour to welcome you to our church. After graduating from Calvin Theological Seminary in 2005, I served as a pastor in Truro, Nova Scotia and as a Chaplain at Dalhousie University in Halifax. I give thanks for our salvation in Jesus Christ and for the opportunity to help people explore the Bible and to learn to read it well as they mature in their walks of faith. I am blessed by my wife Nathalie and my four children and enjoy teaching beginner hockey for women ages 30-70 in my spare time.

Natalie Wotherspoon, Office Administrator

I have been the office administrator at First CRC Kingston since 2022. When contacting the church I am most likely the first person you will be in contact with. I am here to help you with your needs, and if I can't do it I will help you to find the right person here at First CRC Kingston.
On a personal note I am a wife and mother. My hobbies include chicken farming, cooking, and baking.
