Meet Jalene Elsa & Adam Foster

This is for those of you that want to pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee, and get to know us better. How we wish we could sit down and get to know you too!


Hello! I am Jalene Elsa. (The “Elsa” in ‘Elsa & Foster’) I managed to snag the heart of the guy below when we were 15 years old and we began the adventure of marriage at 19 years young. Now a decade later, we have also been given the privilege of raising our sweet little girl, Elisabeth Grace. What a joy!

Version 2I am a lover of words and melodies and when I have a guitar or pen in my hand the world gets quiet and I can see everything a bit more clearly.

I’m on a journey.  In this past season of my life, I have learned to walk in both the refreshment of the mountaintop and in the difficulty of the valley.  My deepest passion is to inspire the hearts of others to know God, others, and themselves in ever deepening ways and to delight in the wonder that is all around us no matter the season we walk through.

In between staying home with our daughter, writing, and playing music,  I also have the privilege of working  in the psychology field. I love working with people and my experiences working with families, women, and  now delving into the world of assessment has continued to spur my love for ministering to others by understanding more deeply who God made us to be as people in His image, and journeying alongside others as we journey closer to Him!

I delight in early mornings, lattes, puns, magazines, wide open prairies, mountain air, surprises, and knee to knee conversations.


 

Hey! I’m Adam. Husband, Father, Pastor, & Carpenter.  Jalene and I have always loved engaging God and people through music, whether leading worship or sharing our own songs in a concert setting. Sometimes music has a way of hitting the heart in a way that simply speaking just can’t. We love the way that music can tear down the walls that we put up, teach us, and draw people together. 

Version 2

I am currently pastoring at Terwillegar Community Church in Edmonton AB.
I love talking theology, teaching, and communicating to people the love of God and their place in His ever unfolding story. I desire to equip others to discover the ways that God’s unfolding story intersects with their passions and to invite them to deepen their love for Christ and His church though music, preaching, and training.

When I’m not pastoring or working on music,  you can find me at home hanging out with my wife and daughter, studying, or putting my carpentry skills to use working on some kind of project.

I take great pleasure in coffee, wool socks, reading, running, playing basketball, and enjoying rainy days.
