Pastor Vinh Doan
Laura (Vinh’s wife) was born and raised in Calgary but sadly, Vinh was born and raised in Sydney, Australia. How they ended up together was only by the grace of Jesus. Vinh has been in ministry for nearly 20 years and has been serving in Canada for 6 of those years. However, most of Vinh’s life in Australia was spent in gangs, dealing and using heroin and eventually prison. The Doan’s have responded to Christ’s call to be on a journey to Church plant Village Church Calgary. It was not what they have preferred or wanted, but Jesus has made it clear that they are to reach out to Calgary where they are to make Him known and preach the Gospel. Vinh attended a Baptist Seminary in Australia and completed his studies in 2009. Though that was hard as a young Christian, nothing is as hard as raising his two daughters, Grace and Aubrey. Vinh has a passion for preaching the Gospel, to making disciples and for the Word of God. On a side note, he does enjoy basketball, Liverpool FC, Seinfeld, The Office, LOTR and Books.
