About Our Executive Director
Charity Mongrain is a creative communicator who has pastored for over 25 years with the PAOC. She has a passion for people to have the light switch turned on when they see the truth for the first time.
Whether it be through her speaking, writing, or laughing at one of her funny stories, the “aha moment” can be the difference between living in darkness and living in the light of Jesus.
You could find Charity reading, writing or relaxing, painting from her home in Edmonton, AB, Canada or exploring nature where she feels closest to the Creator.

Her greatest joy is leading children to express their awe and wonder of God’s love and power and use their voices to ask Jesus for help or to say “I love you Jesus” anytime they want to talk to Him! Faith is an Ordained minister with the PAOC along with her husband and can often be found doing ministry side-by-side with their three teenagers.
