The Rev Richard Warne

Richard Warne was inducted as Minister of the two-pont Charge of Jarvis and Walpole on November 4, 2012.

Richard Warne, was born bred and raised in Hespeler along with his childhood sweetheart Mary. They have two grown sons and two grandsons.

Rick grew up in the Baptist Church until a cute young lady convinced him to join the Presbyterian Church where they were married. After growing up with hellfire and damnation sermons, Rick found it very comforting to learn that God was a loving and forgiving God from his minister and mentor Rev Wally Little. As a member of St Andrew's in Hespeler, Rick was an elder, deacon, Stephen Minister, Sunday School teacher, and served on and chaired many committees.

Rick was rather a late bloomer, but would eventually answer the call the ministry around 2004 and entered Knox as part time student in 2008. While taking classes’ part time and working as a Quality Manager in manufacturing, Rick also had a student charge in Ratho, Ontario.

Rick loves walking with Mary and their dogs early in the morning. He enjoys fishing, watching sports and spending time with the grandkids. Rick is looking forward to his new adventure as the minister of Knox Jarvis and Chalmers Walpole.
