Cephas Church awaits the arrival of Pastor Benjamin Ponsen (below) as our lead pastor. During his transition time to Peterborough from York Ontario, our Church Council has arranged for a guest pastor to lead us in worship each week.

A heartfelt thank-you goes out to each of the guest pastors who have led us in worship over these past 18 months. Our church community has been greatly blessed by your messages and care for us.

  • Benjamin Ponsen - Pastor

    Pastor Benjamin Ponsen accepted our call to be pastor of Cephas Christian Reformed Church (CRC), in November 2023. For the past seven years he has served as pastor of the Maranatha CRC in York, Ontario, in the Niagara Peninsula. He and his wife Lori are now in the process of relocating to Peterborough and we look forward to welcoming them to Cephas CRC near the end of March 2024!
