Pastor Dave & Monika Baxter

Dave and his wife Monika have lived in Espanola for the past 39 years. They raised their four children here, and have been blessed with four grandchildren.
Born and raised in Sault Ste. Marie, an opportunity for Dave to teach at the high school in Espanola resulted in a 26-year math teaching career. Dave enjoyed teaching, coaching golf and soccer teams while Monika worked in the medical field.
Monika and Dave have loved living here, making Espanola their home, enjoying a community that is friendly, quiet, and very welcoming. Their past-times have included enjoying their summers on Manitoulin Island at their trailer, and adventures on their cruiser on the North Shore. Dave’s passion for snow-mobiling and ice-fishing over the years is always an exciting winter activity.
Dave has spent many years in church leadership, teaching God’s Word in small-group settings, sharing the love of Christ.
Retired from teaching at the high school 13 years ago, he was ordained as a licenced minister of the Gospel, seven years ago. He has had the privilege of giving pre-marital sessions and performing the marriage ceremonies for several former students.
Monika and Dave place high value on family, attested by their many family get-togethers sharing meals, fun and fellowship at their 100-year old home on Barber Street.
Having spent the past 10 years ministering God’s love in Sagamok, their church, now called The Remnant Call, has recently re-located to Espanola, a more central location for its members who reside in Sudbury, Espanola, Massey and Manitoulin Island.
Monika and Dave (who serves as Associate Pastor) extend an invitation to all residents of Espanola and area to visit and fellowship with them at The Remnant Call services currently being held on Sunday mornings at the Elks hall in Espanola.
