Minister to sign copies of new book

Vern Heidebrecht of Abbotsford will be on hand at the House of James on Saturday, Oct. 6.

Abbotsford pastor Vern Heidebrecht has released his latest book.

An Abbotsford minister will be signing copies of his new book during a session on Saturday, Oct. 6 at the House of James Bookstore (2743 Emerson St.)

The Best is Yet to Be chronicles Vern Heidebrecht’s life as a Christian minister for more than 40 years in Canada and the United States. He recently retired from Abbotsford’s Northview Community Church, which he helped grow into one of the largest churches in Canada.

The book also details his struggles, including his battle with Parkinson’s disease.

This is Heidebrecht’s second book. His first, Hearing God’s Voice, was published in 2007.

The Best is Yet to Be is the first publication of the newly formed Mill Lake Books, the brainchild of James R. Coggins, a longtime editor and writer based in Abbotsford.

The book signing runs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information, call 604-853-5583.
