Meet Our Staff:

Rev. Bernie Skelding


Phone: 604.939.6136

As an Ontario boy, Bernie lives the life of an exiled Leaf's fan (Lord Stanley will be a friend some day!) and a Hamilton Ti-Cats fan (Oski-wee-wee!). Nonetheless, he is glad for the grace shown him by CPC in these matters, and the love and acceptance of his awesome wife Jenn, and excellent kids Hannah, Reid and Leif!


Bernie hopes you will come and feel the welcome of a CPC family who's grateful for the privilege of being made alive and whole in Jesus. To God be the glory!



Janet Murphy


Phone: 604.939.6136


Janet (pronounced Ya-nette) has been worshiping at CPC since 1998 and working here as office administrator since August 2002. She became a Christian at a “Youth for Christ” event when she was in Grade 5 and has been blown away by God’s grace to “take her and mold her” to His image over time… a very slow process at times. She has been holding onto God's promise in Philippians 1:6 that He will be faithful and complete the work that He started in her. He has carried her through difficult times when she did not feel “like a Christian” in her daily living and loving. This is God’s grace and mercy to all of us who call Him our Lord.


Janet is originally from Cape Town, South Africa and came to Canada in 1997. She has two adult sons and one very precious daughter-in-law.


Lori Berry


Phone: 604.939.6136 ext 104

Lori has been the Worship Director at Coquitlam Presbyterian Church since May 1998. "It's my desire to see people grow in their knowledge of God so that we can worship Him more fully. It's my prayer that Sunday mornings will be a time that people can come and meet with God, experience Him and hear from Him through every part of the service." Lori originally comes from Saskatchewan where she received a BA in Music and BA in Counselling at Briercrest Bible College. She and her husband, Quinn, have two girls: Mikayla and Emma.

Children’s Ministry Director:                                                         
Meghan Adrian


Phone: 604.939.6136


Meghan began as a volunteer in CPC's nursery and Kids Church and was hired as the Director of Children's Ministry in September of 2010. While she loves Bible stories, funny puppets and snack time she is even more passionate about the healthy, Christ-centered relationships that are flourishing between children and their parents and teachers. When children experience unconditional love and acceptance from the adults in their lives, they get a glimpse of what it means to be loved by God. She is committed to surrounding CPC's children with loving Christians who give them a tangible example of the heart of God. Meghan is originally from Illinois. She is married to her High-School sweetheart and has two young sons.


Shane Murphy


Phone: 604.939.6136


Shane Murphy became the youth director at CPC in September of 2018. He has been a part of the CPC family for 20 years and has gone through the youth program himself. He is currently also studying pastoral ministry at Pacific Life Bible College. Shane desires to follow God above all else, and to help the youth at CPC have a vibrant, life-bringing relationship with Jesus Christ.
