Pastor Shawn & Amy McKnight

519.948.7055 ex. 228

Most of my time here is devoted to equipping, resourcing, and encouraging our volunteers & parents/families, directly overseeing our jr. high (gr. 6-8) ministry, and connecting within the community. I absolutely love my calling and the people I am blessed to serve alongside with. I know every pastor is ‘supposed’ to say this, but we really have the best bunch of youth and leadership you’ll find…seriously! In addition to overseeing the youth dept, I am currently the director of our Alpha program, and overseeing the volunteers for our breakfast program @ F.W. Begley public school.
I get to do life with an awesome family and team around me…what else can you ask for?!
Along with my wife Amy, who also serves as our youth dept administrator, we have three incredibly awesome and unique kids- Olivia, Braden & Julia. When I can find a little free time, you’ll find me in the garden, shooting hoops with my son, biking with my family, wrestling or playing the Switch with the kids. I’m also an avid reader, amateur photoshopper, closet Clash of Clans player, and professional Leafs fan…and dabble in interpretive dance…a little…once…

Alex is our newest staff member, serving as the High School & Missions Pastor. He grew up here at Parkwood and finds it an honour to now serve on staff. He is passionate about people and loves every opportunity he has to teach others to love God wholeheartedly and love others unconditionally. When he isn’t in the office, you might find him hanging out with close friends, riding his bike through trails, enjoying live theatre, or at home watching Michigan Wolverines football. When in the office, he can almost always be found in the staff room eating all the snacks.
