PASTOR JENNY
PAITSEL

Jenny is the Worship Pastor at The Edge. She has been leading worship for 10+ years. Her passion for worship has been forged in the fires of tribulation, heartache and sorrow. For Jenny and her team: worship is more than a song, it is an opportunity to lead people into His presence where all hope and healing are found. Her desire is for there to be no separation between the team and the congregation, where we all seek the Father with one voice, and one song, in unity. Jenny brings a blend of purity and power to the atmosphere, which is the evidence of her time spent in the secret place with the Lord. 

 

Jenny has served at retreats, lead worship for ministry conferences, weddings, multiple Churches, homeless/outreach ministry and is also a gifted speaker.

 

She received a Diploma of Biblical Theology from KINEO MTC.

NEXT GEN PASTOR 

tannis@myedgechurch.org

Tannis and his wife Chelsey have 4 beautiful children. Tannis has a passion for youth, and to see a generation abandoning the world's standards and unapologetically chasing God, spreading revival in their schools, homes, and personal spheres of influence. This passion drives him to not only step into his calling to pastor, but to lead by example, and dedicate his life to this mission. He knows it's not enough to simply tell a teenager about Jesus, but to SHOW them, TEACH them, SHEPHERD them, ENCOURAGE them, and help lead them to a personal relationship with Jesus. He is gifted in all of these areas, LOVES to bring out the potential in other people, and is unwilling to give up on anyone. He will lead, challenge, encourage, teach, and disciple the next generation to know God, chase God, and walk in their calling, and have fun doing it!

 

Tannis has been serving in youth ministry for 13 years, as well as serving in other ministries such as: worship team, altar ministry, outreach team, mission trips to China helping the underground church, and Honduras helping build feeding centers and ministering to the kids and the community there. Tannis has led small groups, outreach teams, "treasure hunts", and preached to both youth and adults. Along with this experience, Tannis also has 3 different Diplomas from KINEO MTC, and is currently working towards his B.A. of Biblical Studies.

 

Tannis is not only passionate about family and Jesus, but also about fitness, adventures, improv comedy, community, unity, and helping others. He has his own brand, The Viking Co., and is always finding new and creative ways to get others up and moving!
