Recently our Pastor, Howard Sullivan, and Director of Christian Education, Frances (Francie) A. Sullivan retired, after 13 years of faithful service to Knox.
Pastor Howard and Francie left having laid and reinforced good and solid foundations in Christian living and Biblical teaching We miss them and continue to extend our prayers, love and gratitude to them!
As we embark on the journey to identify a new Lead Pastor and Director of Christian Education we are ably assisted in this effort and in the general support of our church ministry by our Interim Moderator, Pastor Ian McWhinnie. Pastor Ian is the Pastor of Glenbrook Presbyterian Church in Mississauga in addition to his Interim Moderator duties with us. One of his important duties is to secure Sunday worship leaders who soundly teach from God's Word. We are thankful for his caring, thoughtful and enthusiastic engagement with us!
During this time our staff remains fully engaged in the life and ministry of Knox and we are thankful for their service!

Our church administrator is our longest serving church employee and knows her way around the church in every aspect. Carol knows the people, the building, the background, and where to find things! She's a wonderful resource and a great first contact for so many people who connect with our congregation. If you ever need anything or just want a friendly greeting, call the church office.
Our custodian is someone very familiar with Knox and how it operates having been involved with our congregation for many years. Reese is often the first person anyone meets when coming to Knox not on a Sunday morning as he is the property manager for cleanliness, safety, and ensuring our programs are setup with the required equipment for maximum efficiency in delivering the ministry/mission of the church.
Our Director of Music Ministry is thrilled to be a part of the Knox Milton family. Rachel loves choral music and tries to ignite that same joy in her choirs. She is currently in her 3rd season as Artistic Director of the Milton Choristers. With a background ranging from Opera to Jazz, Rachel loves to fuse together an eclectic mixture of styles and languages into Sunday worship. Her greatest joy is leading our children's worship time and watching them praise God joyfully and unashamed. She is dedicated to engaging children into worship services and is part of the team that has introduced Family service on the second Sunday of each month. On this Sunday, children with lead the beginning worship time and read scripture. Her passion is to be used for the glory of God and to help lead Knox into the spirit of worship every Sunday.
