LEAD PASTOR / ELDER
Blair along with his wife Sharon moved to Regina in the summer of 2008 with a very clear call to plant a church in the growing city of Regina. Shortly after arriving, Blair worked in construction and they began gathering people each week to teach the Bible and to share the vision of “The Compass Church.” As this initial core group grew, they launched The Compass Church in East Regina in 2010. God's faithfulness has been evident as The Compass Church, by God's grace, has grown and launched a second congregation in the North End of Regina, and in 2018 a third congregation in the South End of Regina.
Blair and Sharon have four amazing kids and enjoy camping, biking and being together, laughing with their kids. Blair is the preaching Pastor at the East Regina location and oversees the larger vision and direction of The Compass Church.
PASTOR / ELDER
Murray has been part of The Compass since it started! Here is what Murray has to say about this journey:
“It’s been so awesome to see the good, bad, and amazing parts of church planting! I came to Regina kicking and screaming and not sure why Jesus lead me here! It’s amazing what He had planned for me here! I grew up in a Christian home, but I heard the Gospel for the first time 8 years ago. After being changed by the Gospel and continue to be changed by it, I realized we need to get the good news out to the youth in our city! We started Align Youth with the focus of reaching teens who would never have a youth pastor! We are currently working in four high schools in Regina where we can talk freely about the Gospel. We also run two gym nights and are looking to add another gym night in 2017. Jesus has broken our hearts for the city of Regina. The Gospel is the only thing that brings hope to a hurting and broken city.
I moved to Regina as a single man and thought I would never find a wife here. Little did I know that Jesus would bring an amazing girl into my life. Shannon and I have been married for 7 years and have four (everyone puts amazing kids here) I will say amazing little sinners in our house. We are blown away with Jesus’ faithfulness to give us four little sinners (Oliver, Ayla, Rhee and Lundon). They are daily teaching us more about Jesus grace and His love for us.”

Jamie started attending The Compass in July 2016. Jamie is the glue that holds so many Compass happenings together. As The Compass’ Administrator most things come through Jamie and she communicates regularly with lots of people being involved behind the scenes in some way with most everything that happens in and through The Compass Church.
Jamie was born and raised in a small town in Northern British Columbia and started following Jesus later in her youth. Jamie loves the outdoors and everything it has to offer. She loves adventures whether it be in her own backyard or overseas. Besides the outdoors, cooking is one of her favourite things to do and she just loves eating all kinds of different foods, especially BBQ.
Jamie's love for people is evident everyday and she loves hearing about their stories and how God is working in individual lives. Jamie worked as a nurse for 13 years, but has stepped away from nursing to follow God’s call on her life. Jamie is a huge blessing to The Compass and she is excited to serve The Compass family and be involved in something so much bigger than herself.
