East founded Metro Community, a Kelowna-based church, and for the past 12 years, building and developing the work among our community’s vulnerable population has been his passion.
“This is a new chapter for both myself and the organization,” said East. “The COF has an incredible legacy and my hope is to help lead it into ever greater things as we strive to ensure that our community is a more generous, just and equitable place to live.”
