Rev. Ian Kellogg, Minister
Ian was the minister at Mill Woods United from January 2014 until May 2022. This was his second and final posting as a minister before his retirement at the May 1, 2022 service. His first posting had been in Saskatchewan, from 2011 to 2013, in three churches south of Moose Jaw along the border with Montana.
Before becoming a minister, Ian worked as a librarian and database content manager in Toronto.
Ian appreciates life in Edmonton for many reasons, not least being the life and work of Mill Woods United Church; and especially because this is where he met and married the love of his life, Kim Boyes.
Ian was inspired by the many activities of Mill Woods United and loved exploring purpose and place with all who gather here. Click here for the latest information (May 15) on the search for a new minister.
