Jed McGuire

Lead Pastor

Over the past decade + my experiences and prompting from God have led me to become the Lead Pastor of Canvas Church.

I grew up as a PK (pastor’s kid) in Northern MN, before spending some time in South Central IA after college where I attended North Central University in Minneapolis.

Eventually I moved back to MN in 2014. I have an amazing family including my wife Sheila, and 2 kiddos. Since moving back to MN I completed a M.Ed. in teaching and I have been working with students, the local church and schools.

I am passionate about seeing lives transformed when they encounter and recognize daily what Christ has done for them.

Every day is a gift and I choose to live it to the fullest.

I love Canvas Church and have been a part of this church family for 7 years. I have worked on staff for the past two years and am excited for all the years ahead here at Canvas!
I am passionate about this next generation and having them walk in their giftings and who God has called them to be!

I was born and raised on a farm near Sacred Heart, MN which is about 30 minutes southwest of Willmar. On September 25th, I got engaged to my fiance Josh Kadlec and we will be getting married in October 2023.
