CNBC Horizon | 21 October 2021

Johanne Zolc, JD Fasolino and David Pothier complete the National Ministry Leader search team and serve alongside Bo Neal, Patsy Woodard, Shane Spannagel, Erin Evans and Victor Sommers (introduced in previous Horizons).

Johanne Zolc is from Regina, SK.  She and her husband, Don, are members of Calvary Baptist Church in Moose Jaw, SK, and lead two Missional Communities in Regina. She is in her third year as a member of the CNBC National Leadership Board. Professionally, she works as a Senior Sales Associate with Colliers International. She has worked in the commercial real estate industry for 22 years and loves the activity and challenges each day brings. Don and she have been married 42 years. They have four children and 13 grandchildren. Family time is one of God’s blessings that brings her great joy.

JD Fasolino was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela. He and his wife Andreina, with whom he has been married for 16 years, left their home there and moved to Toronto in July 2012. They are the proud parents of two boys, Daniel Isaac (seven years old) and David Andrés (three years old). He serves as church planter/lead pastor at Emmanuel Baptist Church East (EBCE), a multicultural Hispanic church located in Ajax, Ontario that just celebrated its five-year anniversary last April. JD has a bachelor's degree in economics, studied pastoral counseling at the Evangelical Seminary of Caracas, and is pursuing a master´s degree in theological studies at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (MBTS).

He also serves as the director for the church planter´s assessment retreat center in Toronto and as the director of the church planting Hispanic initiative that NAMB just launched last December in 15 different cities in North America, including Toronto. JD has been serving on the CNBC National Leadership Board for the past three years and just recently was appointed as the First Vice President.

David Pothier planted la Chapelle, a French-speaking church in the heart of Montreal in 2013. La Chapelle is a fast-growing church with a weekly attendance of around 1600 people. David's vision is to plant several churches in Montreal, Quebec, and French-speaking European countries in the upcoming years. David also serves in Send Network as the Send City Missionary for Montreal. He is the proud husband of Karine and is the father of four.


National Ministry Leader Search Team Update and Prayer

by Bo Neal

The National Ministry Leader Search Team has been in full swing since we began receiving resumes and applications this summer. As we approach the end of October, the window of accepting resumes is coming to a close. God has been faithful to provide all along the way in the process thus far. We have received several applications and have begun interviews with candidates. The team and the process are on track with the initial timeline set out, and we are excited to enter the next phase of the process.

Our team would like to thank the CNBC family for praying for the candidates, the team, our convention and the leader God is raising up to step into this role. Let’s continue to pray together and seek God’s discernment as we trust He will provide in it all.


Save this link ( ) in your calendar to meet with us on November 8, 2021, 2:00 PM – 2:30 PM CST (1:00 pm MST) for our next prayer time for our next National Ministry Leader. Folusho Hezekiah leads this important prayer time and it is a half-hour well worth your time.

The breaking news is that we are in need of news…from you!

We would love to hear what God has been up to in churches in your area e.g., people that you know that have “God stories” to share, events that have happened (online or otherwise), testimonies of people coming to know the Lord, books that have been written, pastors that have something impactful to share, regional events that are upcoming, stories of evangelism, stories of encouragement, stories of hope, something your church has done to impact your community, stories from new pastors in your area, stories of faith, stories of learning. 

Did that give you any ideas?  I would love to hear from you. Please contact Lynda at the email below.
