About Kristy

Kristy Reimers-Loader
Hi! I’m The Rev. Kristy Reimers-Loader. I’m a priest ordained in the Anglican Church of Canada currently working as the Chaplain for Medicine Hat College, and as a civilian Chaplain to the military community at Canadian Forces Base Suffield. My background includes service in the Canadian military in many locations across Canada and in the United States, ending in my honourable release in 2008.

In my everyday life and in my practice of Christian ministry, I believe in giving people the opportunity to speak their truth and tell their story in a safe and confidential space, without fear of judgment or condemnation. This has made it easier for people to share the difficulties they have and continue to experience in their lives. It’s been especially beneficial to those wishing to fulfill Steps 4 and 5 of 12-step addictions programs. I strongly believe in the effectiveness of empathy and compassionate listening for building trust and understanding, and setting the groundwork for healing.

I am affirming of people who identify as cisgender, transgender, and those who embrace life as LGBTQ2S+.
