Rev. Chuck Moon, Interim Moderator
In October, Rev. Chuck Moon was appointed by Grey Bruce Maitland Presbytery to serve as an interim moderator for St. Andrew’s congregation in Owen Sound. His responsibility as an interim moderator will be to provide leadership to the congregation during a transitional period following the departure of Rev. Dana Benson.
His initial focus as an interim moderator will be listening. He desires to listen and learn more about who we are and what we are passionate about (issues/concerns as well as grace/blessing of God we have experienced as a congregation).
He moved from Korea to Canada at the age of 16 & is currently serving as a pastor at both Tolmie Memorial Presbyterian Church (Port Elgin, ON) and Knox Presbyterian Church (Burgoyne) since 2006.
He graduated from Columbia Bible College (B.A. in Christian Counseling, Care-Giving) and from Trinity Western University (B.A. in Leadership) and received his Master of Divinity from the Vancouver School of Theology.

Biography of Sara Denbok
When Sara den Bok was three-years-old she was found wandering, alone, on the dirty, crowded streets of Calcutta, India. She had several fresh cuts on her head, possibly from a dog attack. and had, likely, been abandoned. A police officer found her took her to Nirmala Shishu Bhavan, an orphanage operated by Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity Order. Because of the low view of baby girls in India, it is likely that, were it not for Saint Teresa's love, Sara would have died from starvation and/or disease. Sara was raised by Saint Teresa until she was adopted, at the age of five, by a Christian couple from Stayner, ON., who were visiting the orphanage with friends who were missionaries. She was the first, and, as far as she knows, only child at the orphanage to be adopted and brought to Canada. At that time there were 93 orphans there, including herself. For the next several years Sara received several letters from Mother Teresa inquiring as to her well-being. A few years before Saint Teresa died, Sara returned to India to visit with her and work in her orphanage. Sara, recently, published her story in a booklet entitled Saved--By Mother Teresa. Since then she has told her story about 80 times in schools, churches, and nursing homes. Sara decided to put her story on paper as a tribute to Mother Teresa, as a legacy for her children and as a dedication to her parents. Her speaking engagements also aim to educate people, especially children, about the work of the famous Catholic nun, who died in 1997 at the age of 87. Prepare to be challenged as you hear, first hand, about Saint Teresa, one of God's truly great women, from one of her "children."
