Leadership and Staff

Welcome to North Shore Church Leadership Team

Meet our Pastors

Gary Adduono - Lead Pastor

Hey there! My wife Elizabeth and I have pastored North Shore since June 2017. I absolutely love seeing people live out their full God-given potential. I am passionate about encouraging and equipping others. I am here and ready to serve you and your family.

Elizabeth and I have been married since 2010 and it has been the best adventure of my life. We have three children, McKenzie, Katherine and Leland.

After church life, my hobbies are all things Walt Disney World and Commercial Aviation.

I grew up in Sioux Lookout Ontario and graduated from Master's College and Seminary in Peterborough Ontario with a Bachelor of Theology. I am Credentialed and Ordained with the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada. I am thankful for our fellowship, district leaders, and pastors who have invested in my life.

Elizabeth Adduono - Associate Pastor

Elizabeth is a graduate of McMaster University in Hamilton Ontario and hold a Bachelor of Science in Nursery degree. She is a Registered Nurse and works at our local Hospital in Terrace Bay.

When she is not working as a mom or RN, she can often be found working on a church project. Currently she is serving as our kids director and you will often see her at the front playing keys and singing. But you can also find her behind the scenes preparing and planning for numerous events and activities that take place at North Shore.

Elizabeth is also a graduate from Master's College and Seminary with a certificate in Church Leadership. She is a credential holder with the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada.

Katie Cochrane - Assistant Pastor

Hey friend! My name's Katie and I'm the go-to Pastor for all things Youth and Kids at The North Shore Church! Which is a fitting role because I'm a giant kid at heart! My wonderful husband Brandon and I joined the team at North Shore Church in 2020, and could not be more excited to play our part in God's unfolding plan here! I love to be creative and can often be found behind the lens of a camera, or doing graphic design work on my computer.

I'm a bit of a foodie and I'm always up to watch a good Marvel movie! But all that aside, I love Jesus more than anything! He changed my life and I am grateful for it every day!

Pastor's Council

Our church is governed by a Local Church Constitution. Our Constitution requires us to have an executive leadership team of either an elected board or an appointed Pastor's Council. The voting members have established that a Pastor's Council would best serve our church and community. Each member meets the qualities and expectations for church leadership and is a valuable part of our organization. Each serves in a staggered three-year term and can serve a maximum of six consecutive years before being required to take at least one year off.

Our Council members are:

Greg Kemp - Secretary/Treasurer

Patrick dela Paz - Member at Large

Frank Capy - Member at Large

Each serves faithfully and with excellence, we give thanks to God for providing these leaders to our church.
