Evan & Mary Lou Renaerts

Lead Pastors

“Living and Loving Life.”

Mary Lou and Evan Renaerts are the Lead Pastors of Elevate Church. Passionate about building God’s local church, they have a heart to introduce people to the love of Jesus, and a desire to see lives changed. That passion has led them to be part of several church starts and various ministry experiences through the last 30 years. They have planted and pastored churches with a heart for introducing people to Jesus. Their greatest joy comes through seeing changed lives and families through restoration and hope in Christ.

Mary Lou and Evan have three daughters and several grandchildren. They love to enjoy time with family and friends, laughing, watching sports, riding rollercoasters and always enjoy thrill-seeking opportunities.

Brad & Roxana Murray


Serving in mission for over a decade, primarily in Latin America, Brad met His Wife, Roxana, a Costa Rican missionary doctor serving in Guatemala. With a passion to draw people to Jesus and to empower them to live abundantly, serve passionately and transform their communities for Christ, they believed Elevate Church fulfilled that mandate, thus, choosing to serve in Edmonton.

Brad and Roxana have been blessed with two incredible young boys, Andrew and Stephen. Currently, both are busy working with the church, their business and family. Brad is also pursuing his master’s degree in theology.
