Moderator of the 145th General Assembly

The Rev. Amanda Currie, B.A.Sc., M.Div.

The Rev. Amanda CurrieAmanda Currie grew up in Ottawa at St. Giles Church. Gracefield Camp, PYPS, and participation in the congregation and choir all contributed to her faith formation and call to ministry. She graduated from Knox College in 2003 and served St. Andrew’s in Saskatoon from 2003–2017. In August 2017, she was called to First Church in Regina. Amanda is a pastor with a passion for preaching, teaching and pastoral care. She loves to sing and to share in ministries of music that include diverse styles that help us to sing our prayers and proclaim the good news with joy.

Amanda is committed to both denominational service and ecumenical dialogue and cooperation. She has served as clerk of the Presbytery of Northern Saskatchewan, Presbyterian representative for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s National Event in Saskatoon, small group leader at Canada Youth, adult advisor for Saskatchewan Presbyterian Youth, chaplain at Camp Christopher, member of the Assembly Council, and convenor of the Ecumenical and Interfaith Relations Committee.

Ecumenically, she has served on the boards of Interchurch Health Ministries Saskatchewan and the Prairie Centre for Ecumenism. She has also been a chaplain and instructor in the Prairie Centre for Ecumenism’s Program in Ecumenical Studies and Formation, and she was on the writing team for the 2014 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity international resources. Amanda is currently the Moderator of the Synod of Saskatchewan and Convenor of the Camp Christopher Committee. She also serves as a Presbyterian representative to the Governing Board of the Canadian Council of Churches.

Living in Saskatchewan for the last 15 years, Amanda is well aware of the legacy of the Residential School System and the need for Presbyterians to be engaged with our neighbours in the work of reconciliation and responding to the TRC Calls to Action.

Amanda is married to Nicholas Jesson, a Roman Catholic theologian who is currently serving as the Ecumenical Office for the Archdiocese of Regina. Her personal experience of being in an interchurch marriage contributes to her desire for the unity of the church and her conviction that unity with diversity is possible through the love of God in Christ. Amanda is working on a Doctor of Ministry degree through the Toronto School of Theology on the topic of interchurch families.
