Jamie Paterson – Area Director

I have been involved with Young Life since 2016. I started by establishing our work at Burnaby South, then in 2018 I stepped into a role of overseeing Young Life across Burnaby and New Westminster. I am excited to meet and engage with others in our community that want teens to know who Jesus is and have good, strong relationships with adult role models. In my free time I like to spend time with my wife and daughter. I also enjoy long distance running and squash!

As the newest addition to Young Life Burnaby and New West, I hope to build a community of leaders and high school students in North Burnaby to share fun memories and the joy of knowing who God is. Before going to a seminary, I studied Fashion Design, and the love for colours and textiles led me to the world of natural dyeing. I still admire crafts of all sorts and enjoy stories in books, movies, and people’s lives.
