Don practiced law many moons ago. Called into ministry as a second career, Don has now been in ministry much longer than practicing law. It has been the people whom he has met through working in the church that has brought him joy in ministry.
Don appreciates building relationships among all age groups and bringing our best to God.
Don’s passions are music and theatre. Above all he enjoys making a joyful noise, be it at home or while leading worship.
Ministers Elaine Hall & Don Willmer
Don and Elaine bring almost 30 years of experience in team ministry and have been serving the Port Perry and Prince Albert United Churches (now Port Perry United Church) since Fall 2011. Both grew up in East York, in the east end of Toronto. They were married in 1992. Ordained in 1994, for the next 7 years they served together in a five-point charge in Cape Breton; this stirred in them a love of rural and small-town life. They then moved to Perth, in eastern Ontario, and spent 10 happy years working half-time each at a two-point charge in Lanark County and raising their young family. Don and Elaine have 3 children, and live in Port Perry.
