Interim Preaching Pastor
Dwayne Cline was the lead pastor of James North Baptist Church (JNBC), in Hamilton, for 28 years. When he arrived at the church in 1995, the North End was the 3rd poorest community in Canada. JNBC offers a variety of ministries in the neighbourhood, caring for over 400 unchurched individuals and families every week. JNBC recently built a church facility that includes 45 apartments for those needing supportive and affordable housing. The Lord established both a Portuguese speaking congregation as well as a Karen congregation (refugees from Burma). Dwayne is currently chairing both The Gospel Coalition Canada as well as Churches Together Canada. He is now helping churches and organizations in the areas of governance, strategic planning, fundraising and teambuilding.
