OTTERBURNE, Man.—After 45 years of dedicated service, Gary Schellenberg retired from Providence University College and Seminary and on May 30, 2019, was among five people honoured at a Retirement Dinner (along with Hendrik van der Breggen, Daryl Climenhaga, Edmund Neufeld and Deborah van Duin). Gary was made Prov’s first ever Vice President Emeritus, a lifetime designation. Gary’s father, Rev. Dave K. Schellenberg, was the first editor of The Messenger (1963-1987) and a proud parent who found ways to include his children and grandchildren in its pages. Rev. Schellenberg likely would have been glad to see his son mentioned.

Stony Brook: Special Service for Retiring Pastoral Couple

by Lisa Bergen

STEINBACH, Man.—On Jan. 27, 2019, SBF held a special service for Pastor Earl and Caroline Unger as they retire from serving at SBF. Pastor Earl has worked at SBF for 20 years and three months. We had an emotional and bittersweet kind of morning together as a congregation. We celebrated them at a come and go retirement party on Sunday afternoon. We wish them very well in their future endeavours. SBF says a great big thank you for all your service, dedication and sacrifices you made for us!
