Our Team

Pastor  Jimmy & Ginger Ntagabo

Lead Pastors


Jimmy Ntagabo, originally from Burundi (Africa) started his journey at Peace Tower Church in 2006. After Pastor John Mark Raymer (founding pastor), spoke a word of knowledge over him, Jimmy experienced what he calls “a deluge of God’s unconditional love”. This supernatural moment changed his life forever. Jimmy has served in many areas at PTC over the years, as a Youth Pastor, Prayer ministry, Deacon’s board, Young Professional Pastor, Connect groups/Assistant Pastor. 

Jimmy holds a bachelor’s degree of Economics from Sherbrooke University, and a BRE – Pastoral Ministry from Master’s College & Seminary. He is credentialed as a Licensed Minister under the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada. Jimmy officially stepped into his role as lead pastor by the leading of Holy Spirit, that was later confirmed by a strong congregational vote.

Jimmy & Ginger met at Peace Tower Church in 2014 and tied the knot the following year! Ginger received Ministerial and Biblical Doctrine Diplomas through the Ottawa School of the Bible at the Life Centre in 2015. She has a strong passion for healing and restoration ministry; her desire is to help those who have experienced deep woods (such as wounds and trauma from abortion) in receiving complete healing through Jesus Christ. Ginger launched Embrace Grace Ottawa in 2022 which supports single & pregnant women facing an unplanned pregnancy.
