Board Members

J.C. Peters

Board Chair

J.C. is the owner of Big Tree Properties, Winkler, MB and is an active member of the Winkler M.B. Church. J.C.'s introduction to Square One began with his participation at two Pastors Conferences with Ernesto Pinto of the Spanish Ministry: one in Honduras followed by one in Nicaragua.

I feel extremely blessed to be a part of the Square One World Media team. Their creativity, efficiency and willingness to share and cooperate with other agencies make me proud to be a part of this great work.

Rodney Badgley

Board Vice-Chair

Rodney has a lifetime of experience in the insulation industry and is the operations manager at Plasti-fab in Winnipeg. Rodney has always tried to listen for God’s call, and then serve as God leads. He and his family actively participate in various ministries at their home church, McIvor M.B. in Winnipeg.

I prayed for God to lead me, and God brought me to Square One. This is part of my forward journey and I am very excited to see what God has planned for me in this new area of ministry.

Bev Dueck

Board Secretary

Bev lives and works in Steinbach, MB where she is an Oncology nurse at the Steinbach Hospital. As a member of the Steinbach M.B. Church, Bev is involved with the missions committee.

Square One has my heart because it communicates the message of God's hope and help around the world, in a wide variety of ways, with excellence, innovation and compassion.

Laurence Fernandez

Board Treasurer

Laurence has been in pastoral ministry since 2000. Currently, he is the Executive Pastor at Riverwood Church Community in Winnipeg. As a leader in a multi-staff environment, he is very passionate about positioning his team to succeed. Laurence was born in San Jose, Costa Rica, where he and his mother first heard the message of salvation through missionaries.

I believe my cultural heritage and my experience as a not-for-profit executive will add a valuable perspective to the work of the Square One Board.

Alexander Brotzmann

Alexander is a radio and television technician by profession, currently working as a truck driver for Ruby Truck Line Inc. Alexander lives in Steinbach, MB and is active in the Steinbach M.B. Church. His experience with Square One World Media (then known as M.B. Communications) goes back to his days as a student when he volunteered repairing electronic equipment and singing in the Russian choir.

My work on the Square One World Media board serves to provide me with a connection to this ministry that I have fostered since my time as a volunteer at M.B. Communications.

Henry Reimer

Henry is a retired educator having worked for many years in both the public and Christian school systems, as well as serving as a correctional educator for a federal institution. Henry attends McIvor Avenue M.B. Church in Winnipeg, MB.

Square One World Media allows me to contribute to building God's kingdom. God has blessed Square One with the ability to shine His light into the dark places around our world with the Good News that Jesus Saves.

Scott Koop

Scott is the Associate Pastor at Portage Avenue Church in Winnipeg and has been in pastoral ministry since 1997.  Along with his wife and their two children, serving the Lord has always been in the family’s DNA.  In addition to church ministry, Scott is also the chaplain for the Winnipeg Goldeyes Baseball club.

Square One is so exciting to me because it is a part of how the Good News is preached throughout the whole world so that all nations will hear it, as Jesus spoke of in Matthew 24.  The global scope of this ministry thrills me and compels me to be a part of what God is doing in preaching to all nations!

Marj Wiebe

Marj has worked in the charitable sector for most of her career, with key planning and development roles at the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba and at the Assiniboine Park Conservancy. She has been active with a house church since 2001.

In my involvement with the development of Square One’s HIStory Endowment Project, I have become more familiar with the staff and with the ministry. I look forward to working with this organization as it continues to evolve its leadership in Christ-centered media.
