Former BIC pastor wins seat in Canadian Parliament
Harold Albrecht won a seat in Parliament during the national election this week in Canada. He will now be serving as a Member of Parliament (MP) for the riding of Kitchener-Conestoga.
With his wife Betty, Harold started Pathway Community BIC Church (Kitchener, ON) in 1999 and served there until he announced his nomination for MP in the fall of 2005. He was also involved in various ministries of the Canadian regional conference, including the missions board and church development team.
Of running for Parliament, Harold has said, “My decision to seek the nomination to be the Conservative Candidate for Kitchener-Conestoga came as a result of a life-long commitment to serve people, and to work with them in a collaborative way to improve the quality of life for all of us in this great country of Canada. Winning the nomination is a great honour and yet a very humbling experience.”
