Larry Schram

Lead Pastor

I cannot think of a more exciting place to be than SBC. We have been actively ministering in the South Okanagan since 1905 and yet we continue to reach others, encourage restoration and go deeper as we follow Jesus together. We long to see families of faith established, marriages healed, leaders develop into their God given roles and people experience a transformational encounter with Jesus Christ! We are not content with the status quo and are hungry to see yet more being accomplished in God’s Kingdom. We are blessed with a great staff team of highly dedicated leaders and believe that there is real hope available through Jesus. For all of these reasons and many others this is an exciting family to be a part of!

My specific role in SBC is to lead the church as we follow Jesus. I strive to communicate God’s word with simple clarity, lead the staff team and ministry leaders to pursue our vision, ensure that we faithfully and effectively respond to our God-given opportunities and oversee the health of our church family. Outside of church life I am an avid outdoorsman, hiker, reader and learner and I’m richly blessed in being a husband, father and grandfather.

Summerland is a wonderful place to live and SBC is a great church to call home. If you live in the South Okanagan, please visit us and consider making SBC your home. We are closer than you think.
