Dave Larmour | Lead PAstor
I am privileged to be the primary teacher, communicator, and visionary at King Street Community Church, I love to help people discover God and help people realize that the first and last word spoken over their life is 'they are loved'. Since 2006, I have been deeply invested in positioning KSCC as a champion of the gospel within the Durham Region. As Lead Pastor, I am privileged to oversee King Street’s vision and weekly teaching, while providing coaching to the pastors and staff. I am married to Pia, and Dad to my two young adult daughters - Bethany and Riley, and the family dog, Chase. I have to admit, I am a Toronto Maples Leaf’s fan and a firm believer that through God all things are possible—even a Stanley Cup for all Leaf fans! In my spare time, I enjoy early morning walks and a good leadership development book. I have a Bachelor of Theology from Master's College in Peterborough and a Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership from Briercrest Seminary in Saskatchewan and I get to serve a fantastic church and community!
AL Heath | Executive Pastor
What a privilege for me to be a part of the King St. Ministry Team. My wife, Sonya, and I came to Oshawa, after spending just over 17 years in Brantford, ON, where we raised our 3, now adult, children and planted/pastored our church. Before that, we pastored in Leamington, ON. I am a graduate from Summit Pacific College and Sonya from Master’s College & Seminary. While in Brantford, I also was also an electrical contractor and Sonya worked as a Travel Agent, which she continues to do now, here in Oshawa. We both felt it was truly God’s timing for us to make the move to Oshawa and King St. Community Church, as God opened the door for us. I am excited to serve both the Staff and Congregation of King St., and for God to use the gifts He has given me to advance His Kingdom. My prayer is that as we all work together, God will use us all to reach many more people in Durham Region who still need to hear the Good News & give them an opportunity to meet Jesus! If you see me around the church or around the region, please stop me and introduce yourself!

I am the primary Small Group leader, overseeing a team of other leader shepherds, where I strive to implement systems that help all experience authentic relationships and spiritual growth through communities of circles. In addition to our Small Group leadership, I oversee our Adult Ministries including Men’s Ministries and our Adult Electives. My aim is to equip Christ followers for engagement with the people and places around them in a way that brings Jesus glory! On the operational side, I oversee both finance and facility, as well as, coach a segment of our pastors and staff. I get to serve a wonderful church community, and I count it all as blessing and privilege from God! Having a background in both the financial services and higher education, I joined the staff of KSCC in January of 2017. I’m passionate about helping people discover their identity in Christ in order to realize their God-given potential. My lovely wife Maria and I are parents to our three wonderful children, David, Daniel and Mayah. (All three born within 3 years of each other, pray for us!)

pia larmour | children's pastor & volunteer coordinator
I have served at King Street Community Church in many areas, and am privileged to give leadership to our Kid’s Department, as well as overseeing volunteers and our women’s groups. I love the opportunity to work with volunteers to help people of all ages discover how deeply loved they are by God. I am married to Dave and we have to amazing young adult children, Bethany and Riley. We also have a sweet cockapoo named Chase. Because of my love of all things sugar, I enjoy being active to balance that out. I also enjoy spending some quiet time outdoors, but the highlight of each day for me is being with my family. I have graduated from Master’s College, Sheridan College (Medical Office Administration) and have completed a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Waterloo. I love our church family and it is a huge privilege to serve at KSCC.
Abbey ferreira | youth pastor
I am passionate about seeing young people develop lasting and authentic relationships with Jesus. Providing leadership to our King Street Students (Jr. and Sr. High), I love to create environments that allow for intimate worship of God and discipleship of our young people. I am in progress of completing a Bachelor’s of Theology degree from Master’s College and Seminary, the place where I met my best friend and husband, Jon. We have been married since 2014 and together we have a beautiful baby girl, Alayah (yes, we are Star Wars fans). Most days you’ll find me sipping dark roast coffee and working to the sound of worship music or a teaching podcast. Next to being a mom, learning people’s stories and seeing God work in their lives is my top passion. I love to chat and get to know people, so make sure to connect with me next time you’re at King Street!

Diane and I have been married since 1963 and are parents to Kim and Dave, and grandparents to Kaitlyn, Kyle, Bethany and Riley. Before I entered pastoral ministry, I spent twenty-six years in the Graphic Arts industry - rumour has it that I even served a brief stint as the drummer in a rock band. In 1988, I graduated from Master's College and Seminary, and have had the pleasure of pastoring at churches in Kingston, Brighton, and the Ottawa Valley.

I joined the King Street team in February of 2018 to help expand the capacity for administration. As Ministry Assistant, I assist in many areas of church life. From Children’s to Small Groups, and Outreach. I have my hands on just about everything that happens here! I’m married to Fil and I am a mom to Hannah, Jessie, and Nate. Some of my favourite things are sushi, the ocean and trying (not always succeeding) to recreate things I see on Pinterest.
Lauren elford | design & communication
I recently graduated from the School of Design at George Brown College, and began working at KSCC in June of 2018. I love typography and I’m a big foodie—two passions I fused together when completing my thesis! I oversee all aspects of our church-wide branding, design, social media and communications strategies. My role is to support various ministries behind the scenes through creative solutions such as web design and print media. Though I work on the computer all day—I prefer to be doing something outside! VDC is my favourite time of year here, where I get to break out of my office and take photos of all the cute little faces.
Martin and Jenn Pawlun | Custodial team
We both joined the awesome King Street team in the fall of 2018, and were happily married by Pastor Dave a month later. We’ve been engaged for 3 years previously, and have worked together running our cleaning small business for the past 7 years. We do our best to make sure everything is cleaned, maintained, and set up for the various activities and events throughout the week here at KSCC. We love spending our free time enjoying the outdoors together with family and friends. Whether it's wrenching away on our cars, visiting the local racetrack, or cruising around with ice coffees, we're total gearheads!
Karina carney | interim worship and arts director
I am honoured to serve as the Interim Worship and Arts Director at KSCC for the summer months! I organize our incredible media, sound, band, vocal volunteers, and lead worship on Sunday mornings. My husband, Dave, and I along with our two kids have attended KSCC since moving to the area in 2011, after finding this incredicle church family to be a part of. Besides music and all things creative, I love spending time with my family, laughing with good friends (or anyone who will listen to my terrible jokes) and eating good food!
