Biographical history

In the summer of 1952 Jack and Ruth Blizzard moved from Pangman, SK to Athabasca planning to establish an Apostolic Church of Pentecost. They lived in a small trailer on Ralph and Maud Ball's property near Baptiste Lake, AB. In September 1953 a portable church was set up on 48th Street in Athabasca just south of the current Buy-Low Food Store. In 1956 a new church was built on 47th Avenue. In 1957 the Blizzards and their sons Leslie and Frank, who were born in Athabasca, moved to the USA. The following couples then served as pastors: Mel and Greta Taylor, Frank Nelson and family, Don Metz, Carl and Ruth Nagel, Albin and Alice Liknes, Carl and Ruth Weiler and Conrad Heistad. In 1981 Muriel Olson donated land two miles south of town and a cedar log church was built there. It was officially dedicated on October 24, 1982 as Aspen Ridge Christian Fellowship. Pastors there included Clint and Diane Cornelius, Norman and Sybil Walker, and Harvey and Stephanie Matson.
