Fiona originally attended CHBC as a student and served on our Summer Support Staff. It was here she met Steve and together they obeyed the call to serve the Lord in Quebec and now on Thetis Island. With four beautiful kids to care for, you will find her busy honing her skills as a home teacher but always ready to give you her time to listen & chat over a cup of tea.
Lauren has made an easy transition from a student & Support Staff member to the full time Staff Team. Her role will involve providing additional care & nurturing to the growing number of staff kids on site. Lauren will be utilizing her lifeguarding & outdoor skills during the summer months to share Christ with the varied guest groups we host. Lauren is Canadian with British Columbia being her home province.

Sarah is excited to be stretched & challenged in her new roles in student ministries & seasonal conferencing.

Bible School 2012/13:
Bible School is off to a great start. This year's class appears to be focused on learning what it means to know and to be known by the Lord Jesus Christ.
Besides their attentiveness in the classroom this is evidenced in their daily duties, workday assignments and even in their thoughtful preparedness for the Venture weekends.
It is a joy to watch so many young (and some more mature) people come to a knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and to come alive to the hope of all that He has called each one too, which are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and to the surpassing greatness of His power toward those who believe (Eph. 1:17-19). What an incredible blessing to be in fellowship with Christ and this body of believers for the next 8 months.
Many also have sacrificed much to set aside these next months studying God's Word. Some of which are in financial need. We, as a staff body, are trusting with them for the balance of their fees. If you are interested in aiding one or more of the students with their finances please contact our office or donate through: www.canadahelps.org
