Connor Longaphie grew up in Durham region, Ontario, spending equal amounts of time in Ajax and in Port Perry. While he was Baptized Roman Catholic and raised in the Brethren church during early childhood, it was in the Christian Reformed Church as a teenager that he first heard the good news of Christ crucified for the forgiveness of our sins preached! It was also in the Reformed church that he met his wife Lacey who he married in 2017. Together they are expecting their first child in late March. Connor holds a Bachelor of Theological Studies from Toronto Baptist Seminary and has completed the work towards the Pastoral Ministry Certificate at the Institute of Lutheran Theology. He is currently working towards finishing his Master of Divinity at Sioux Falls Seminary through the Luther House of Study program. While Connor has served ecumenically in many different church traditions including Reformed, Anglican, Baptist, and Pentecostal, he is fully committed to the Lutheran Confession of faith in his preaching of the gospel and his teaching of the Scriptures.
