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 Philosophy with a Minor in History from Carleton University.
After finishing my degree, I left Ottawa 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 at Counterpoint Church, a new church plant in Brantford On in 2009. After successfully planting the congregation 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; building a new church facility and community space.
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.
