- - Turn - - 

There is so much more to the story of Zacchaeus, Paul, Jonah  and others who went against all odd to follow Jesus. Their life took a steep turn!  There is so much we can learn from these amazing Bible characters - way more then they taught us in Sunday School.  Our theme for the Summit Retreat is TURN - is it time to take a turn in the direction we are going?

  • Speaker: ken white

    "Ken was not raised in a Christian home and became a Christ-follower through a family where he was a foster child. Wanting immediately to give back to God and the church, Ken quickly became involved in the youth and music ministry. Ken was a student to become a teacher, but after a few years of study and working with high risk youth in East Vancouver, he felt the call to pursue ministry. After graduating from Bible university, Ken worked full time in the church in many different roles including lead pastor and youth pastor. Ken has always had a heart for students and the passions and struggles that are common in this ever-changing age group. Ken loves music, playing instruments, volleyball, the movies, and reading fiction."
