Hello! As new pastors in this district we are so happy for the privilege to be called to serve in Pugwash. Please let us introduce ourselves.

Pastor Carvil Richards is originally from Jamaica and Alexandra is from Saskatchewan. We met at Andrews University where Carvil was doing his MDiv and Alexandra was MS in Community & International Development. She ended up adding a MA in Youth & Young Adult Ministry. We were married in May of 2017 and are growing in the love and grace of Christ in our marriage. We both enjoy outdoor activities such, walking, hiking, and cycling and it’s Alexandra’s hope that Carvil will learn how to swim in Nova Scotia.

Carvil is passionate about preaching and has started a peer-preaching group in the seminary where he mentors fellow students on all types of preaching: expository, narrative, evangelistic, and prophetic. At the same time, Alexandra has a heartfelt desire for the churches to make an impact on their communities. Together, we are also enthusiastic about Bible study, multicultural ministry, sharing the word of God, small groups, fellowship, and discipling for Christ. Our desire in ministry is that through our leadership and lives people will see Jesus (John 12:21). We can’t wait to meet you!
