Serving the Mile '0' City

SINCE 1953

This local congregation was called into being by our Lord Jesus Christ, in September 1953, with 29 charter members, under the leadership of Pastor Phil Pritchard. Pastor Walter Boldt became its first full-time minister in 1954. He oversaw the building of the Alliance Chapel on 102 Avenue. The first baptism service was held at the Kiskatinaw River with 11 believers following the Lord in baptism.


Vision - "To establish a vibrant and caring community of Christ-followers who love God and each other"

Mission - TEACH, SHARE, PRAY & CARE ... these are the legs we want to set our table on.

  • Cyril Marlatt - Servant Lead Pastor

    I grew up in Calgary, Alberta, where I had early spiritual input from Baptist and United churches, and where I responded to the gospel at nine years of age during a Rex Humbard evangelism service. Perceiving the need for forgiveness and a renewed start in faith and life towards the end of High School, I began to read the Scriptures and some Christian books like The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis and Knowing God by J.I. Packer. God eventually lead me into the church family at Rockyview Alliance Church where in September 1984, the Holy Ghost invaded my life and set me on a path to attend Canadian bible College "for only a year" - mainly to gain foundations for a life of faith. A calling to a four-year degree was solidified when I was privileged to lead a teen to respond to the spiritual birthing God was causing in his life and to follow Jesus as His Lord and Saviour. My call had morphed into a four-year time of preparation for ministry (B.Th.); followed by another four years of serving on staff at CBC (Ambrose University) as the Resident Director and in Student Services; and to attend Seminary (CTS and Regent College). While on staff at CBC (Ambrose University) I began a long-distance relationship with a medical student and married Wanda Wiesner in 1995; we now have five children.

    I was ordained with the C&MA in 1995, and I have served at North Shore Alliance (Internship), Yarrow Alliance Church (Youth/Worship), Victoria Alliance (Youth/Associate), Comox Valley Alliance (Planter), Minnedosa Covenant Church (Senior), Fort Nelson Alliance (Senior), Crandbrook Alliance (Assistant), and now, serving Dawson Creek Alliance (Lead). We are grateful for how the Master has lead us here, and love the community of Dawson Creek.

  • Steve Roszmann - Youth Pastor

    Dawson Creek Alliance Church has been my home church since I was 12 years old and now I have the privilege of working here. I enjoy sports, board games, and music. I especially like doing all these hobbies with my wife, while raising our two girls. I graduated from Peace River Bible Institute with a degree in Biblical Studies. I love connecting with young people on matters of faith, and am so glad to have a job that is well suited for that passion/burden God has placed on my heart.

  • Michelle Johnson - OFFICE MANAGER

    I am married to the love of my life and have three grown children. I've been privileged to work here at Dawson Creek Alliance since the summer of 2013. This is a great workplace! It's pretty special to be able to talk with your fellow staff about the things of God and to share or pray together at any given time of the day. When I'm not here at the church working, I enjoy knitting, sewing, reading, and hanging out with my family.
