The new pastor at Rimbey Church of the Nazarene

When Grant Rainey was a youngster in the late ‘50s and early ‘60s in Rimbey his father, Percy Rainey was the minister at the Nazarene Church.

Now, Rainey has gone full circle and is back in the community pasturing at the same church where his father preached so many years ago.

For Rainey, who worked in human resources at Briercrest College and Seminary, a Christian college in Caronport, Sask. for many years and also within his own company in Kelowna, B.C. it is like coming home.

“I have been all over Canada and this (Rimbey) felt like roots.”

Rainey said being a pastor was his original calling and although he did not plan to become a full-time minister when he retired, the change of plans has worked out well.

“I feel very comfortable,” he said.

He and his wife Marietta, who have a blended family of six grown children, recently moved to Rimbey from Didsbury.

“I was driving up from Didsbury three days a week and it is wonderful to be here and a relief not to be doing all that commuting.”

Rainey is looking forward to meeting the people of Rimbey and becoming more involved in the community.

He enjoys collector car restoration and has almost completed the restoration on his 1966 Chrysler.
