Pastor Larry Hasmatali
Larry is a respected and gifted minister of the Gospel holding two leadership positions within the Church of God. In 1996, he became the lead pastor of the COG-MJ. In 2013 he was also appointed as the administrative bishop for the Church of God in Western Canada. He serves in both of these roles with great devotion and passion for leadership development and church growth.
Larry and his wife, Connie, have made their home in Moose Jaw, SK since 1986. They have a son, Brandon, who is currently studying to become a chemical engineer and a daughter, Maddison, who is currently studying to become a social worker.
Larry and Connie are very honoured to serve the Church of God in both leadership capacities.
Since COG-MJ began with a radio program back in 1943, it has been marked by Generosity, Innovation, Vision and Empowerment. Being a part of this church since 1983 and pastoring since 1996 we’ve known this to be true. We are grateful for those who went before us, so that we could be where we are today. We see a church full of people who generously give themselves to be innovative in proclaiming the hope of the Gospel with a vision that is far beyond what we alone can accomplish. It’s a vision that can only be brought about by God Himself as He empowers each of us by His Spirit to serve the people in our community so that they may know the same hope we have. Having more than 70 great years behind us, we believe the best years are still yet to come and we hope you will journey forward with us as we follow Christ’s lead.
