Effectively ministering to 279 churches stretched over 1 million square kilometres is a daunting task. To help accomplish this challenge, FEB Central has identified three Districts – the Southwestern District (96 churches), the South Eastern and Northern District (76 churches) and the GTA District (97 churches). Our goal is to have three District Shepherds (we need one more) who essentially serve to equip the churches in their Districts in Church Health, Leadership Development, and Church Planting. We praise the Lord for Mark Cuthbert and Jack Flietstra presently serving as District Shepherds. We are convinced this strategy will enable us to more effectively build relationships, enhance proximity, and offer resources to the churches in our region.
Jack Flietstra - Southeastern and Northern District Shepherd

Jack Flietstra was our first District Shepherd. He serves in an Associate role at Lansing Avenue Baptist church in Sudbury. The Associations in his District include: Ottawa Valley, Anglophone Quebec, Kawartha, Quinte, Northwest, Algoma, James Bay, and North Central.
