OUR SENIOR PASTORS
Leon & Sally Fontaine are senior pastors at Springs Church. With a significant love for people, they have devoted themselves to building a Spirit Contemporary church that empowers people to live fully alive with God’s power, yet be completely relevant in their day-to-day lives. Since becoming senior pastors at Springs Church Winnipeg in 1994, Leon & Sally Fontaine have taken the church through unprecedented growth.
Leon & Sally are a dynamic team and a great example of unity. They believe both the home and the church should be thriving places filled with laughter and joy. Along with their family, (4 daughters, 1 son, 4 son-in-laws, 1 daughter-in-law, and 3 grandchildren) they live life to the full as they build Jesus’ church together!

How would your world change if you regularly experienced the miraculous? And what if this happened everywhere you went—in a way that attracted people to Jesus? It wouldn’t just make a difference in your world…it would make the world different.
It might sound too good to be true…but that’s the Spirit Contemporary life.
L.A.F. That’s the heart of Springs!
At Springs, we think of our church as a family, and we love to laugh and enjoy life together. We spell laugh differently (LAF) to help us remember these three things:
L stands for love.
As a church we strive to love one another the way that God loves us. His love is unconditional and is best described in
1 Corinthians 13 (The Message): Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self. Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have. Love doesn’t strut, doesn’t have a swelled head, doesn’t force itself on others, isn’t always “me first,” doesn’t fly off the handle, doesn’t keep score of the sins of others, doesn’t revel when others grovel, takes pleasure in the flowering of truth, puts up with anything, trusts God always, always looks for the best, never looks back, but keeps going to the end.
A stands for accept.
No one is perfect and we are all at different places in our walk with God. When we choose to accept each other where we are, we allow God to change us and help us grow.
F stands for forgive.
Will someone at Springs say or do something to hurt or offend you? Probably. Just like life, church is filled with imperfect people. Because we all make mistakes, we all need to learn to forgive. Jesus taught us to forgive because when you forgive others, you actually free yourself.
We’ve noticed that some of the happiest people are the ones that love, accept and forgive quickly. So join us at Springs and learn to LAF along with us!

In all things, SCA guides students toward Christ.
