The Rev’d Lars Nowen has a wide range of experience and education in over 20 years of ordained ministry. He has a long-held and growing interest in classic, historic Christian philosophy, theology, and liturgy. Apart from formal degrees in philosophy and theology, he is a trained teacher. Currently, he is completing another graduate degree focusing on the philosophy of Thomas Aquinas and the poetry of Dante. As a bi-vocational pastor, Lars works for the City of Kelowna and is a Chaplain in the Canadian Armed Forces (the British Columbia Dragoons). He has a keen interest in discipleship and ministry to strengthen the Church and broaden its reach. He thinks that a classic and thoughtful Christian congregation in the south Okanagan would be an important aspect of Christian witness in the region. He is married to Claire and their twin sons, Theo and Sam, are 8 years old. If you would like to know more about who he is, and the vision of St. Thomas Summerland contact him:
