Scott Gerbrandt joined the A Rocha Canada Team in 2017 as the Manitoba Director. As an all season cyclist he boasts of having the best commute in Winnipeg along the Assiniboine River. Growing up near the small hamlet of Vivian in eastern Manitoba, he fell in love with the boreal forest and Canadian Shield through camping, canoe tripping and rock climbing. Scott has over 30 years of adaptive leadership experience in various Christian ministry roles. Most notably, he served 19 years with InterVarsity Canada, in a variety of roles, including Western Field Director. His family has deep roots in the Wolseley neighborhood of Winnipeg where you can see him and his wife Jana nurturing their fledgling food forest and receiving well deserved eye rolls from their three boys as he calls out to them to be curious, kind and courageous.
