Jacob Bear Community Church (Whitewood, SK) Partnership

Richard Bear and Leanne Perrin-Bear have historical and familial connections through Jacob Bear Community Church. Those served through Jacob Bear Church are many and when it moved out of the United Church to a Community Church the financial needs to offer services became greater.

Pastor Brig Judy and his wife Chris have been with NAIM for many years and after returning to Jacob Bear (they had spent a decade here, earlier in their ministry) were reconnected with Walter and Cindy Selke.

As the Call for Richard and Leanne was confirmed and supported through the Jacob Bear Church leadership, they were encouraged by Brig to contact Walter to see about becoming faith missionaries through Healing Hearts Ministries Inc.

Leanne hopes with her Masters in Social Work to practice solely through Jacob Bear Church and the surrounding five First Nations reserves of Ochapowace, Kahkewistahaw, Cowessess, Sakimay, Chacachas and area.
