Our Staff

Francis Douville

Lead Pastor

Francis Douville and his wife, Tina, joined Really Living (then Living Word) in December of 2009. Prior to coming to Hamilton, Francis served as an Associate Pastor at the Aldergrove Adventist Church (Church in the Valley) in British Columbia for six years.

Before becoming a minister, Francis worked for seven years as an athletic therapist in Montreal. In the summer of 2000 he began to feel that God was leading him to a different purpose, and so he made the decision to attend Canadian University College (now Burman University) where he completed his undergraduate degree in Religious Studies. Since becoming a pastor, Francis earned a Master of Arts in Pastoral Ministry from Andrews University.

In his spare time Francis enjoys golf, strategy board games, and watching the occasional Montreal Canadiens hockey game.
