Shona Burditt

Shona Burditt has been in full time youth and children’s ministry for 15 years and has been the director for Youth and Children’s Ministries at Oshawa Temple since 2007. Shona grew up in Scotland and was an active member of the Salvation Army in Edinburgh up until she married Andrew and moved to Canada in 2000. She has two boys, Euan and Wilson, who keep her really busy! Her calling to youth and children’s ministries started back when she was a young teenager in Scotland and has grown through many different ministry opportunities over the years. She loves working with children, youth and their families, it is a privilege not taken for granted.  She feels blessed to call Oshawa Temple her family and looks forward to many more years of ministry here. 

Chris Noel

Chris feels called to teach children about God’s unending love for them, a calling that grew through spending the past 8 summers with the Salvation Army’s Provincial Camping Ministry. He can think of no better place to continue this ministry than Oshawa Temple, the church he has been attending since the age of 5.
