Stephen Thiessen

Trained at Capernwray Harbour Bible School for two years, Stephen sought to discover the “truth” -Jesus Christ Himself, the God of the Bible and Eternity. This training began a life-changing journey of learning, growing and serving effectively in the Torchbearer ministry in Canada for nearly 20 years in various roles.

God continues to effectively use, equip, and keep Stephen as he trusts in the Lord, however small or big the task at hand. Stephen operates a sustainably grown food farm on Vancouver Island with his wife and five children while pastoring a growing church congregation on Gabriola Island. Stephen’s journey continues to be that of a servant seeing God bring hope to the hopeless, healing to the sick and wholeness to broken lives as the Gospel is lived out and proclaimed.



From the beginning, everything God said, He did, and the quality of what He did was always “Good”. But when God made man and woman in His own image, it was not just “good”, He declared it “very good”. Nevertheless, when Adam and Eve sinned, it was not they who sought after God, but rather a faithful Creator who came seeking after them. From that moment on, God would begin His promised plan to restore a fallen creation to His Good Glory. Genesis is a look back at history (His Story) and the men & women God used to bring the SEED of LIFE into the world; and how He changed their lives along the way. We will also see how this same SEED continues to work today, changing and transforming lives as He restores us into the image of His Righteousness.
