Spring of 1991 Pastor Jim Reimer and a small group of Christians from Kootenay Lake Community Church in Crawford Bay began to have Friday night meetings in the Slumber Lodge (Baker Street Inn) for the purpose of developing a congregation in Nelson.
Eventually the meeting time changed from Friday nights to Sunday afternoons and then to Sunday mornings. In 1995 Pastor Jim gave full time attention to developing a congregation in Nelson. He left the pastoral work at Crawford Bay to evangelize and coordinate ministry in Nelson. The congregation grew and purchased their next facility on Stanley Street in January 1996. Over the years, it became evident that more space was required for KCF and it's ministry of Our Daily Bread. In 2012 we were given the opportunity to purchase a new building at our current Falls Street address. KOOTENAY CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP is a diverse socioeconomic community with a myriad of age and people groups. KCF is active in the community, assisting people in their human struggles, and helping people connect with spiritual realities within the Kootenay region and through out the world. Through God’s power, it is common to hear testimonies of lives changed and people healed of emotional and life debilitating problems.
Our two main formats for meetings are:
Large Group: Sundays at 10:30 AM
See Our Service page for more details.
Held on various days and various times, these meetings are held in members homes. The emphasis is on building relationships and intimacy. The attendance of each group is about 6 - 12 people. Confidentiality and respect of individuals is a high value.
