Pastor Aaron Thompson was born and raised in Portland, OR. He did not grow up in a Christian home but was exposed to various religious beliefs. At the age of 25 a Soulwinner showed Pastor Thompson the Gospel from the King James Bible and he called upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and was saved. Pastor Thompson attended various Baptist churches after getting saved, until 2016 when he was asked to be the leader of the Vancouver, WA satellite ministry of Verity Baptist Church. He served as the satellite leader faithfully and was ordained by Pastor Roger Jimenez as the Pastor of Sure Foundation Baptist Church in July of 2018. Pastor Thompson is married to his wife, Sherry, and they have four children; Remy, Nia, Jassamayn, and Josh, all of whom faithfully serve in the church.
Our Local Leader
Brother Jim Wiebe was born and raised in Southern Manitoba, in a Mennonite home. He got interested in Baptist preaching after watching a Bible documentary on end times prophecy and got saved after listening to a sermon entitled "Doubts About Your Salvation" in early 2013. Brother Jim Wiebe and his family started attending various Baptist churches in 2014, and found out one by one that they taught a version of works-based salvation. Since his lack of success of finding a local church that taught correctly on salvation, he formed a fellowship together with some likeminded families. For 4+ years Brother Jim had been leading weekly preaching and singing services and soul winning. In September of 2022 Pastor Aaron Thompson expressed an interest in helping the group, and on November 3, 2022, SFBC Winnipeg held their first service. Brother Jim Wiebe is married to his wife, Judy, and they have seven children. Brother Jim lives outside of Winnipeg, Manitoba.
