Shirley Thiessen

August 17, 2022
Shirley Thiessen is an Author, Grief Coach, and Founder of CornerBend Ministries.
Grief is our common human experience. And yet, we live in a death-denying, grief-avoidant society. Most people don’t know what is helpful to say or do in support of someone who has suffered a great loss.
Shirley Thiessen was one of those people who felt uncertain about how to effectively companion with the broken-hearted.
Then abruptly, grief ambushed Shirley’s family. Twelve days after her son’s wedding, Shirley was thrown into the unimaginable task of planning his funeral. The trauma of child loss threatened to destroy her.
Hope and resiliency gradually emerged with the caring support of courageous, compassionate friends.
Inspired by these “Hope Heroes”, Shirley wrote, “The Little Black Funeral Dress – Five Things I Wish I Had Known About Grief” to pay it forward.
Identifying the need for more education around grief and mourning, Shirley became the founder of CornerBend Ministries.
Shirley offers simple yet effective concepts to fuel connection, build trust and lend hope. No one should feel invisible and alone in their sorrow.
Shirley’s passion is to inspire others to be Hope Heroes so that every grieving soul will experience God’s love and care through them.

Bill Prankard & Jacob Walda

July 28, 2022
BILL PRANKARD is the President of the Bill Prankard Evangelistic Association a healing evangelist with a burning vision for revival. In 1972, while pastoring a small Pentecostal Church in Canada, he had a life-changing encounter with the Holy Spirit in a Kathryn Kuhlman service. That experience launched him into international healing and evangelism ministry. Thousands of people have received outstanding physical miracles and spiritual transformations as he crosses denominational lines and carries the full Gospel message, “in demonstration of the Spirit and power.”
The scripture that has been the driving vision of the BPEA ministry is Canada’s motto, Psalm 72:8 – “He shall have dominion from sea to sea, and from the river to the ends of the earth.” During his more than five decades of evangelistic ministry, Bill has taken Healing and Hope “from sea to sea” in Canada and abroad. He established and led churches, hosted weekly and daily television ministry, and authored several books and publications. At “the ends of the earth,” in both the Canadian and Russian Arctic, he and his teams took the Gospel where the name of Jesus had never been heard, mentored leaders, and spearheaded the funding and establishment of native churches. Bill continues to accept invitations to minister in Hope and Healing services, Conferences, and Christian events.

JACOB WALDA In 2017 Jacob encountered the Lord at Bible college and his life changed forever, from an understanding of salvation to a relationship with Holy Spirit. In early 2020 God gave Jacob visions of Canada in revival, later that year Bill and Jacob connected and their hearts were united under this same vision that God gave Bill 50 years ago. Since then, Jacob has joined Bill as his PA, serving and traveling across Canada and the nations together.

Adam Shepski

July 26, 2022
After coming to Jesus at the age of 18, Adam and his wife Melissa raised their own support as missionaries and began working with Youth for Christ in local, national, and international roles for 15 years. While Adam was developing prayer and evangelism strategies for Youth for Christ globally, he discovered that only 10% of Canadian believers have shared the Gospel once in the past 6 months. Seeing that the Canadian church has wrestled with how to engage and fulfill the Great Commission Adam pulled from his global experience in leadership, fundraising, and innovation with Youth For Christ and helped found Disciple A City. Disciple A City trains churches, organizations, and individuals with simple tools to share the Gospel and disciple new believers. By 2020 the work and team of Disciple A City had grown and was seeing many people transformed by Jesus. This led Adam and his wife Melissa to resign from Youth for Christ and continue to raise their support, as missionaries to direct DAC full time. With the DAC team, Adam founded Every Disciple Sent as a multi-organization initiative to call and train Canadians nationally to ignite mission, share Jesus and multiply hope. He is ordained with Anchor Ministerial Fellowship and believes the future of the Canadian church hinges on the equipping and sending of every believer. Adam, Melissa, and their 3 sons live in Peterborough County.

He pastors a two-point charge with the CBOQ in Flamborough.
Overlooked: The Forgotten Origin Stories of Canadian Christianity – An honest assessment of the spiritual ground we inhabit begins by acknowledging the criticisms many Canadians have about the church are valid. We have to admit Christianity has been used as a tool of oppression. Each generation in this land from the 1500s and on has dealt with the perceived lack of Christian influence over this place. The who, what, when, where, and why are different but the outcomes and responses were noticeably similar. Even in a country as young as Canada, there have always been those who lamented and feared the loss of time-tested Christianity…make no mistake, when it comes to the struggles of declining Christianity, Canada has been here before.

Named by Christianity Today as one of fifty women most shaping culture and the church today, Ann knows unspoken broken, big country skies, and an intimacy with God that touches tender places. Cofounder of ShowUpNow.com, Ann is a passionate advocate for the marginalized and
oppressed around the globe, partnering with Mercy House Global, Compassion International, and
artisans around the world through her fair-trade community, Grace Crafted Home. She and her husband took a leap of faith to restore a 125-year-old stone church into The Village Table, a place where everyone has a seat and belongs.

New York Times bestselling author Ann Voskamp pens an unforgettably vulnerable love story – the story of her marriage that she almost lost, of her daughter she almost didn’t find, and how to find the way forward when there seems to be no way – in her highly anticipated new book, WayMaker: Finding the Way to the Life You’ve Always Dreamed Of
In the midst of breaking her husband’s heart and facing the open-heart surgery of their youngest daughter, Ann Voskamp finds herself hospitalized for her own literal heart failure — only to finally find the way to the actual heart of everything: a sacred way of life, a rule of life, that turns the whole of a life around.
On her journey from witnessing her sister killed, through the hospitalization of her mother in psychiatric wards, through life’s deep disappointments, addictions, and all the messy in-between, internationally renowned teacher, speaker, and four-time New York Times bestselling author, Voskamp asks, “How do you find a way forward in your one and only life when life isn’t turning out the way you dreamed?”Purchase Book

McVicker wrote the SheLoves manifesto, Let Us Be Women Who Love, which has been used by women’s ministries around the world and in Sarah Bessey’s book Jesus Feminist. After training as a journalist in South Africa, she lived in Taiwan, where she wrote for daily newspapers. McVicker moved to Canada in 1999 and lives in Surrey, British Columbia.
As a white Afrikaner woman growing up in South Africa during apartheid, Idelette McVicker was steeped in a community and a church that reinforced white supremacy and shielded her from seeing her neighbours’ oppression. But a series of circumstances led her to begin questioning everything she thought was true about her identity, her country, and her faith.
Recovering Racists shares McVicker’s journey over thirty years and across three continents to shatter the lies of white supremacy embedded deep within her soul. She helps us realize that grappling with the legacy of white supremacy and recovering from racism is lifelong work that requires both inner transformation and societal change. It is for those of us who have hit rock bottom in the human story of race, says McVicker. We must acknowledge our internalized racism, repent of our complicity, and learn new ways of being human.
This book invites us on the long, slow journey of healing the past, making things right, changing old stories, and becoming human together. As we work for the liberation of everyone, we also find liberation for ourselves. Each chapter ends with discussion questions.

Danielle will be sharing with us her third family devotional in the Table Talk series. 

Danielle Macaulay is an author, blogger, podcaster (marriedup.net), speaker and television personality on the marriage television show “A Better Us” (abetterus.tv). She is passionate about her marriage to her husband, recording artist Dan Macaulay (danmacaulay.com), her two young boys, Keaton and Braden, and about helping women grow in their faith (Check out her book and Bible Study, “Why Can’t We All Just Get Along?” and “The Get Along Guide”) and she isn’t afraid to admit she’s also passionate about donuts, Hallmark movies and the spa). She provides nourishment for both your body and soul at her popular blog spot frommilktomeat.com and offers families spiritual nourishment and kid-friendly recipes in her children’s mealtime devotionals, “Table Talk: Family Dinner Devos”. She has just released her third edition in this series!
This is the third (and final) family devotional in the Table Talk series! We have had such wonderful feedback from so many young families about the first and second of these that we wanted to do just one more! Our kids (and some family friends) still unwittingly gave us more great quotes to work with too… In fact, we think this may be the best of the bunch!
If you’re new to Table Talk, each short, fun family devotional starts with a real-life kids quote. Some from our kids, some from friends’ kids. They are often hilarious and ‘get the party started right away! Then, we transition from an aspect of that quote into a thought about God or life and turn it towards a Biblical perspective. Lastly, we get your family talking (if you’re not already by then over the laughter) with some family dialogue starters. Designed for you to take at your family’s age-appropriate level. We take even the craziest kid quotes and get you talking about things that matter. We like to say we can even “turn boogers into Bible” (sometimes literally!) and families love it.

Tim works as the National Youth Director for Alpha Canada and is passionate about empowering youth workers and students to share the good news of Jesus everywhere they go. He has been serving in the ministry for over 15 years. He lives in Langley BC where, along with his family, he seeks to see his neighbourhood transformed with the love of Jesus.

Alpha Canada releases new series to equip students to share life, faith, and Jesus. 

Christian GenZ appears ready to live out their faith – and share it – one personal relationship at a time. But, while they’re willing, Barna research released in 2021 revealed that only 16% of these same Canadian teens felt they had been equipped to share their faith. In response, Alpha Canada is releasing LIFE ON PURPOSE, a brand-new 4-video series that invites students to explore what it means to live life on mission for Jesus.

LIFE ON PURPOSE equips and inspires students to engage in conversations about faith with their friends leveraging their commitments to active listening, mutual understanding and a passion for a living faith. LIFE ON PURPOSE features a range of experts and contributors from across Canada, with each episode guiding youth groups in mission and evangelism.

Shelley Thody

March 22, 2022 

Although Shelley had known and loved Jesus as a child as she grew older she grew away from Jesus and made choices in her life that were not healthy.  During the first part of her interview she shares with us her struggle with depression and Bipolar Disorder and her journey back to Christ.

The truth is that we live in a turbulent world filled with sin, temptation and lies just waiting to pull us under. Things that initially make us feel they would enhance our lives, often lead to consequences such as losing a job, wife, family, self-worth and dignity. She once lived and participated in this longing for worldly things for a large part of her life. It was exhausting and never rewarding. We can never do enough or have enough to be completely satisfied. It leaves a person feeling hopeless and alone.

There is hope in Jesus. That is the difference. God intended for us to live in His truth, love and light. He is our Creator. When we listen to His calling and He grants us His grace, the storms become glassy, calm waters. The temptations and longing change into satisfaction in an amazing relationship with Jesus. He fills our cups. He is the cure. He is the answer.

In Shelley’s book, Miracles Unfolding, you will read some of God’s amazing miracles that happened 2000 years ago when Jesus lived on the earth and you will also read about miracles that have happened recently. Jesus still lives in those who believe through His Holy Spirit. These miracles have happened over the past few years to her family and to close friends. They are incredible.

John and Helen Burns

March 18, 2022 

John Burns graduated from UBC as a dentist in1978 and moved to Williams Lake (in Northern British Columbia) to begin practicing dentistry. At the time he and his wife Helen were living separately. They had two young daughters and Helen was pregnant with their third, and their marriage was broken. John had dealt with fear and had an issue with stuttering. He avoided communication at all costs. Helen was hurt and angry, and their future was uncertain. It was in that season that God changed both of their lives individually, and began empowering them to restore their relationship. When they encountered Jesus, their lives took a dramatic turn. After six years up north they felt called to the Vancouver area, and moved with their three young girls (Angela, Danica and Ashley) to open a new dental practice in the Guildford area in 1984. A home group that they lead in Vancouver began to grow exponentially, and eventually formed the core of our church today.

John and Helen planted the church in 1986. They are warm and dynamic leaders, passionate about equipping the next generation with wisdom for life. John and Helen travel and minister globally, mentoring pastors and sharing their life message with churches and organizations. The strength and longevity of their ministry is seen in the second-generation leadership of Relate Church. Together they host the television program Sex, Love and Relationships on the Hillsong Channel. John and Helen have three grown daughters and take great joy in their eight grandchildren.

Pastors John and Helen Burns have now transitioned into the roles of Founding and Teaching Pastors.

In this exhibit, the Stations are captured through sacred art pieces expressing the dramatic moments of Jesus’ final hours.
