Our Pastor and Elders
Matthew Kratz, Pastor
Here at Ajax Alliance, Pastor Matthew Kratz continues the faithful leadership of our recently retired pastor, Randy Mann over the past 17 years. Pastor Kratz grew up in Toronto and has lived in Guelph, Brantford, Paris, and now Ajax Ontario. Matthew married Lisa and worked together in the financial services sector until attending Heritage Theological Seminary in Cambridge. He has pastored churches in Paris, Hamilton, Everton, and Ajax. Believing scripture to be the final authority for all things of faith and practice, he truly believes that God has called undershepherds to equip the saints for the work of ministry. With a son who is an engineer in Vaughan and another taking HVAC and playing baseball in Windsor, Matthew enjoys jazz, baseball, training Muay Thai kickboxing, and enjoying the wonderful waterfront of where he lives with Lisa in south Ajax.
