Ab Boogerman


Arie, known to everyone as Ab, lives with his wife, Faye, on a trout farm just south of Durham.  He has five grown children and two grandchildren.  He has been attending HMC for ten years.

Ab is semi-retired from the trout farming business though he remains involved in a consulting capacity.  He has started a small hobby farm and is currently raising pygmy goats and he makes a very good housekeeper on the days his wife is working. 

On a spare afternoon he would turn off the cell phone and television and devote his time to being with Faye.  He also enjoys walking the dogs, reading, and his daily devotions but his favorite thing is a well earned nap.

Ab hopes to bring common sense, a focused point of view and a practical business outlook to his role on Ministry Council.

Ron De Visser



Ron lives on a farm southwest of Chesley with Ingrid, his wife of 32 years.  They have four children; Dan and his wife Emily and their two daughters,  Olivia and Daphne; Greg, a cabinetmaker who lives four miles from them; Adam and his wife Alicia both work with them on the farm and have a daughter named Savannah; and Megan who has completed her second year at the University of Saskatchewan for her Masters in Animal Nutrition.

Ron has been attending HMC for about eight years.  Though farming utilizes most of his time through the week, when he finds himself with some freedom he enjoys reading, going for walks at the beach, watching a sunset, or visiting a neighbor.

Ron hopes to bring his own unique perspective in seeking God’s will for HMC, both today and in the years to come.

Paul lives in Chesley with his wife, Alison.  Together they have four daughters: Brooke, Melissa, Ashley, and Brittney.  They have been attending HMC for nine years.

Paul’s days are full with running a business but when he finds some time he likes to work in the garden, go for walks with his wife, or snowmobile in the winter.

Ken Toman

Ken is married to Karen, and has three sons, Nicolas, Jeremy, and Ryan. They are blessed to have two grandchildren as well.

Ken works at Hallman Motors as a detailer and has farmed most of his life. They sold their farm three years ago and purchased seventeen acres of God’s creation and built their dream home. In his free time he can be found maintaining the property, including making wood for heat and exercise, going for walks and observing the birds and wildlife. His goal is to work less, read the newspaper, relax more, travel and be more involved in the community.
