Lead Pastor Edwin Valles

I was born in the Philippines, came to Canada when I was 12 years old and lived in Vaudreuil, Quebec and Toronto. I graduated from Eastern Pentecostal Bible College in 1993 and have pastored in Quebec, Toronto and British Columbia. I am married to a wonderful woman named Rose and have a beautiful step daughter named Reena. My passion is to serve King Jesus, His Church and reach the gospel to every generation, and every nation. On my spare time I like to play sports, going to the beach, travel, watch movie and eat good food. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends.

Associate Pastor Scott Sayers

I was born and raised in the Cornwall area, I have been actively involved in a variety of ministries including youth work, music ministry, Prison Fellowship and pulpit ministry. Married to my wonderful wife for thirty five years, we see ministry as a team effort and enjoy the opportunity to fellowship and share the gospel. We joined Nationside Pentecostal Church in January 2018 and served as bi-vocational Transitional Pastor. We have since made Nationside our home and have joined Pastor Edwin as the Associate Pastor. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and special folks, and playing music.

My passion is to share the life changing message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in today’s world.
