Senior Pastors of Burning Hearts Church
Jana Sawchuk is the Senior Pastor and Co-Founder of Burning Hearts Church. At the young age of 19, Jana headed to Fiji for her first mission work. She witnessed lives changed forever by the Power of Jesus just like she had read in Acts growing up. Marked by the events she witnessed, Jana continued to serve in the United States, Russia and Ukraine. She became an elementary teacher and taught in the Fargo Public Schools. She met and married her husband, Ted Sawchuk, MD in 1993. After starting a family and working as an Elementary Teacher, Jana felt called back to ministry and became an ordained pastor. She and her husband Ted live in Fargo and have 3 grown children.
Above all, Jana lives to see people finding their identity in Jesus Christ, growing in their knowledge of the Bible, and being discipled to then go and lead others to Christ. In between, you can find her spending time with family, enjoying sunny days, and laughing often. Dr. Ted currently serves on BH’s Board of Directors.
