Eugene Klassen, MA
Development Officer (BC & AB)

Eugene met Jesus personally just over 40 years ago, having observed from a distance in the first two decades of life. Following Jesus has allowed me to be a youth pastor and a senior pastor before entering what would be a 30-year career in faith-based, not-for-profit administration related to supportive care of people who have a disability. I joined the MB Seminary Team in the late summer of 2015.

Blessed with three children, one son-in-law and three grandchildren, Marilyn and I are actively involved in the life of family, extended family and our church community (Highland Community Church, Abbotsford, BC).

Education is a life-long process and I have benefited from spending time at various schools, including obtaining a MA at Eastern Mennonite Seminary (now University – EMU).

Enjoyment comes from spending time in family, riding (bike, motorbike), reading, shoveling, dismantling/constructing, asking questions, creating spreadsheets, creative problem solving, listening to music, baking, pruning; the list could be lengthy, each in season or for a time. God blesses richly.
