Minister Rona Gilbert
Rev. Rona Gilbert is a psalmist and song writer with a passion for authentic worship. Having surrendered her heart to Christ at the tender age of 12, she has dedicated her life to serving Him and His church through the ministry of music. Coming from a musical family, she was always taught to offer God the very best in worship. This fundamental philosophy has been her guiding principle for life. “God comes first” is her motto.
She has co-labored with her husband in pastoral ministry for the past 22 years and has been a strong influence in the lives of her children who themselves are young, talented musicians that have demonstrated an equal passion for worship and music.
Rona, who is also a licensed minister with the Church of God, spent much of her adult life working in the Banking industry, but her calling to serve the Kingdom of God has been her primary vocation. She has served the Church of God in the ministry of Praise and worship and building and equipping the sanctuary choirs of the congregations where she and her family have served.
She has had many years of ministry service in leading congregations in praise and worship as well as performing in mega concerts, in which she has shared the platforms with renowned singers such as Donnie Mc Clurkin, Ce Ce Winans, and Israel Houghton. She has recorded two albums and is in the process of recording her third.
Rev. Rona comes to the Kitchener Church of God with a wealth of experience in working with and mentoring young women into graceful, Godly women that will impact the Kingdom. She also comes with a desire to see the Body of Christ experience God through authentic worship.
