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 and Ginger met at PTC in 2014 and were married the following year! Ginger’s journey of faith began as a young adult when she experienced the love of Christ for the first time (2002). She has been on a healing journey of restoration, and now leads others to healing from past wounds such as the trauma/regret of abortion (SaveOne) and through Prayers that Heal the Heart. Ginger has Ellel Ministries training and completed a 3-year Diplomas in Biblical Doctrines and Ministry from Life Centre’s Ottawa School of the Bible (2015). Ginger launched Embrace Grace at PTC in 2022, a pro-love initiative for the church to come alongside single women facing unplanned pregnancies. She is passionate to ignite hearts with faith, to bind up the broken-hearted and set captives free through the finished work of Jesus Christ! 

Pastor Sonaz Kabuya

Associate Pastor


My journey at Peace Tower Church began January 2017 as the Children and Family Ministry Director. I graduated From Master’s April 2016 and began ministry shortly after. I am married to my bestie, JD Kabuya and May 2022 we welcomed our first baby girl, Azalia. We are so excited to see where God takes us this season as we transition into the role of Associate Pastor.

Other than loving spending every moment with my little family, I enjoy teaching, encouraging, and walking alongside people in their journey. Partnering with God has been the most exciting and rewarding for me! I cannot imagine life without Him. His goodness is unending!

Alyssa Harvim

Children & Youth Pastor


From a very early age, Alyssa grew up as a pastor's kid in the Ottawa Valley. But at the age of 18, she went off to Thailand to serve on the mission field.

She devoted 5 years of her life helping the local communities, training up leaders, and planting churches.

In March 2020, she returned to Canada in the middle of a pandemic with no home church. When she came to Peace Tower Church with her family, she felt like she belonged. Immediately afterward, she began volunteering in the media team.

Now, she's been serving at the church on staff since 2021. It's been a privilege and a joy to be apart of this family and ministry!
