Pastors in Exile (PiE) is an Anabaptist-rooted movement that is passionate about connecting young people in Waterloo Region with vibrant faith experiences outside and inside of church walls.
PiE is a registered charitable organization made up of two community based pastors working alongside volunteers and supported by a board of directors. Visit “our team” to learn more about the people of PiE.
The work of PiE includes facilitating groups, hosting retreats, providing pastoral care for young adults in our community, engaging in intergenerational dialogue, and supporting young adults to find a spiritual home. To learn more about PiE’s current activities go to “what’s happening?”.
PiE is a community of people living within the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg, and Haudenosaunee peoples. We acknowledge that when European settlers first came to this land, they entered into a sacred treaty, the Two Row Wampum, with the Indigenous nations of this land. This treaty has been, and continues to be, violated, by European/Canadian colonial practices.
As a community committed to sacred justice, we seek to continue learning about the ongoing impact of colonization, to participate in disrupting oppressive systems, and to humbly seek a new way of relationship with the Indigenous nations in this place.
