In her professional life, Karen journeys with men, women and young adults through her work as a Registered Psychotherapist. Karen’s joy is found in sharing life with husband Neil where together they are blessed to create memories with six adult children and four grandchildren. Karen spoke on Saturday on “The Realities of Change”
Donna Schultz – Pastor Donna loves to celebrate life with joyous laughter and doses of good cheer along side her husband, adult children and grandchildren. Donna knows of no greater thrill in life then witnessing men and women becoming followers of Christ. As followers of Christ she believes we are to rejoice with one another in the jubilant seasons and to companion one another in the tougher seasons of life. Donna loves time outdoors, walking year round and cross-country skiing in winter. Donna spoke on Friday evening on The Challenge of Change.

After accepting Jesus into her life, she has endeavoured to live the Great Commission in Matthew 28 of making disciples. Boutheina and her husband lived and ministered for 10 years in Tunisia in the ministries of church planting, field leadership and humanitarian aid. Boutheina is so blessed to witness the Lord making himself known among the unreached and she is passionate about training others to help complete the task that remains. Bouteina spoke on Saturday on “The Promise in Change”
