Rob and Audrey Burns finished their ministry at NBBI the end of May, 2009 and are now launching out in a new direction to serve our Lord Jesus Christ.
Rob, a graduate of NBBI, his wife Audrey and their children, Saralee and Wesley, joined our staff in 1993. Rob faithfully served as Farm Manager, Dean of Men, Christian Service Co-ordinator, Campus Host, Gardener, Angelos Team Leader and a member of many of our school committees.
Audrey served faithfully as Food Service Manager, Assistant Cook, Ladies’ Bible Study Leader, Gardener, Hostess and in many behind the scenes capacities.
Rob and Audrey set a high example for what it means to be a servant of God, a servant to the saints and a servant to lost men and women.
Our staff and students have highly regarded their friendship, partnership and sacrificial service. We prayerfully wish them well as they move on to follow the Lord Jesus Christ.
Jean Marc and Saralee Bridgeman joined our staff August 6, 2009.
Jean Marc will serve as Food Services Manager, part-time maintenance and various other school ministries. Jean Marc is a native of Cap-de-la-Madeleine, Quebec, graduated from our four year, Advanced Biblical Ministries program (1995) and has a bachelor’s degree in teaching ESL from the University of Quebec in Trois Rivières.
Saralee will serve as assistant to the chef in our Food Services department and on our faculty as English instructor. Saralee is one of our former campus kids, a graduate of our one year (1999) program and has a Bachelor of Arts degree (French & History) and a Bachelor of Education from the University of New Brunswick.
The Bridgemans have been teaching in the Quebec public school system, serving in their local church in positions of leadership and youth ministries, as well as working at Christian camps in Quebec and Germany.
We are so glad that God has led Jean Marc and Saralee to be co-workers in this servant training ministry. They are connecting well with our staff and students and will be a blessing to this ministry.
Heidi Clark has returned to work in our Food Services department as of September 3, 2009. Heidi is a 2006 graduate of our three year program and served two years as assistant to our chef.
Heidi has been living in Espanola, Ontario where her dad and family serve at Calvary Baptist Church. She has continued to work in food services and assist in her home church.
We are very glad to have Heidi back on our team here at NBBI.
