Pastor Jack Caron joined our congregation in 2014 where he serves as our shepherd and spiritual leader.
Jack is a St. John Valley native who came to faith in Christ in 1988 at the age of eighteen through the outreach ministry of Mountain View Bible Church in Eagle Lake. Shortly after his conversion, he began an enlistment in the U.S. Army where he served for a total of seven years. It was while stationed in Germany that the Lord called him to the ministry. After an honorable discharge, Jack went on to train at New Brunswick Bible Institute in Canada where he received a Diploma in Biblical and Theological Studies and then on to Lancaster Bible College in Lancaster, PA where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biblical Studies. After being formally ordained as a minister of the Gospel in 1994 and marrying his college sweetheart, Sandra, the Carons went on to serve for a number of years as missionaries in the country of Ukraine. Additionally, Pastor Jack has also helped to shepherd several churches in the state of Maine, including the congregations of Fort Kent Bible Church, Faith Bible Church in Olamon and Passadumkeag Baptist Church. He has also served on the faculty of New Brunswick Bible Institute.
Some of Pastor Jack’s other interests and regular activities include amateur radio (callsign W1AYX) and weather spotting for the National Weather Service’s SKYWARN program. He and his wife also enjoy getting out in the Maine woods or on one of the many local lakes and rivers.
The Carons, along with three of their children, reside here in Madawaska. They also have a daughter and son-in-law who live in Woodstock, New Brunswick, Canada.
