About Mike

Mike OlynykHi! My name is Mike Olynyk and I am the Pastor of Community Engagement here at South Abbotsford Church. God has had my wife Kim and I on a crazy journey.  Previous to my current role, I was the pastor of Student Ministries here for the past 9 years and we have seen God do phenomenal things in the program and through our Serve mission experience.

Recently, we’ve seen God do some absolutely amazing Kingdom things in our Langley Meadows neighbourhood.  Kim and I have been running backyard day camps in our community over the past three years and with the connections of families and people coming to Christ, we are now planting a church campus: Meadows Church.  As a pastor of South Abbotsford Church, half of my role is the campus pastor at Meadows Church as we see it continue to develop and grow. The other half of my role is to champion South Abbotsford Church’s engagement in our Abbotsford Community, while also providing continued support to Darian in Student Ministries, particularly with leadership development.

God has blessed me with my beautiful, talented wife Kim, my gorgeous girls Raelyn and Makenna, and our handsome son, Grayson. I am an avid board gamer and you can often find me riding bikes, playing board games, or park hopping with my kids. I love to play all things sports, but my passion is ice hockey (both playing and watching). I am a huge Canucks fan, I enjoy the sweet nectar of Coca-Cola, and love being outdoors or camping.

I had the privilege to attend Ambrose University College where, in 2007, I graduated with a Bachelor of Religious Education.  I recently completed Arrow and will be continuing Master’s level students in the coming years. 

We are blessed to be a blessing and called to go and make disciples.  I would love to grab a coffee and dream about what that could look like for you and your family.
