Welcome to fourguppies! We are Tim, Gayla, Hope and Autumn Guptill. We live in Canada's oldest mill town - Marysville, NB (Fredericton). Tim is the pastor @ Olivet Wesleyan Church.

Thursday, March 22, 2007


We interviewed, we preached (well, Tim preached), we were voted on, and we accepted. Tim is going to be the new Sr. Pastor of Olivet Wesleyan Church, Fredericton, NB.

You can visit the church at

The church is over 100 years old
It is multi-generational with a great mix of children, youth, young adults, boomers, and seniors (mature adults)
They recently renovated the sanctuary. It is very contemporary yet respectful of the past. It's a mix of very modern elements with some traditional features. The lighting, sound and media equipment is incredible
I know quite a few people in the church. I knew 6 of the 10 board members.
The Youth Pastor, Mark Brewer, is going to stay on staff. He's got an excellent youth ministry happening. He is married (Liz) and they have two little girls, Emily and Abbie
The church has gone through a fair bit of change and transition over the past few years, and they feel as though the time is right to move forward.
There are around 220-240 people there

We are really excited, and we look forward to getting there as soon as possible. Hopefully sometime in June. If anyone wants to buy a hoouse in Indiana, let us know ;-)

    Your first order of business upon arrival:

    1) Tim Horton's run
    2) Give the youth pastor a raise
    3) That's good for now :)

    Hey Heidi,

    We're so stoked we can hardly stand it. Honestly, this is going to be a ride for all of us! We're all ready, we just need the house to sell!

    See you at Beulah or sooner,
    Tim, Gayla, Hope and Autumn
