Our Staff

Directory & Profiles

All staff members at Mount Carmel are involved in discipleship with students, and they spend regular time each week in ministry with the students. In the context of learning, service and community, they live and model their faith with the goal of helping students put faith into action. 

Wayne Tomalty

Wayne serves as President of Mount Carmel, and he is passionate about helping shape how people think about life and living the way of Jesus. Wayne takes responsibility for the schoolʼs direction, program and the leadership of the staff. He also teaches Old Testament Survey and leads growth groups, but, more than anything, he likes spending time talking and being with students. Wayneʼs goal in serving at Mount Carmel is to help "students and alumni to live lives that are purposefully other-centered, that consistently demonstrate Jesusʼ call to put others before ourselves."

Wayne and his wife Shauna have three grown and/or growing children. He enjoys running and most sports (volleyball is not a sport), listens to more indie music than a man his age should, and doesn’t listen to as much old rock as he would like to. Wayneʼs been at Mount Carmel since 1994, and has a Masters of Divinity from Providence Seminary in Manitoba.

Mike Pedde

Mike is the New Testament instructor at Mount Carmel. He also teaches growth group discipleship and keeps his hand in a number of other projects.

He loves the interactions and discussions with students--everyone has a different story, background, and perspective, but we all follow the same God.

Ty Gurnett

Ty likes Mount Carmel because it keeps him young and pursing God in relevant ways. He likes to keep learning and he has a lot of fun with the students. God is up to something new every year at Mount Carmel and Ty loves being a part of it along with seeing the continued growth in students from earlier years. Ty has been at Mount Carmel for eight years and is currently teaching Christian Life and heading up the Impact Program.

Ty is married to Lori and they have four children, Grace, Samuel, Emma, and Rebekah. He says that he has yet to learn a real respect for gravity. He likes to climb just about anything that looks interesting—trees, roofs, mountains, etc. He has good intentions of attempting a triathalon next year, and dreams of one day finishing the work on their home. In the summers he keeps busy with a small construction and renovation company.

Ty is a Mount Carmel grad and he is currently working on a degree in religion at Kingʼs University College.
