Interior B.C. - Falkland, BC
Conan and Julana Arndt
Conan grew up in Melfort SK in a loving Christian home. Camp was always a big part of his life and it was where he gave his life to the Lord when he was 14 through a work crew program. Conan also met Julana while on work crew at camp! Conan and Julana were married in 2015 and now have two beautiful girls, Scarlett and Claire.
Julana was born in Melfort SK into a loving Christian family and gave her life to the Lord at a young age. Julana's parents one day moved the family in God’s leading to Vernon, BC. It was shortly after that big move where Julana’s parents, Kevin and Janice Evans, joined The Faith Mission.
Conan and Julana had been working at the Faith Mission Camp Centre in Falkland, BC, for three summers prior to joining The Faith Mission, which is where they felt the call to join the mission. Camp and ministry has been a huge part of their lives and they both desire to see children and adults alike give their lives over to Christ!

Kevin & Janice were born and raised in wonderful Christian families in Saskatchewan. Both accepted Jesus as Saviour at a young age. They met while working at summer Bible Camp, attended Nipawin Bible Institute, and later married, joining the Evans family farm. They were very involved in their local church where Janice led children’s ministries and Kevin was involved in youth and men’s ministries. Together they led many discipleship Bible studies. Sensing God’s call to full-time ministry, they left the farm after 20 years of marriage, and accepted a call to a church in Vernon, BC.Two years later, as that church merged with another, Kevin & Janice were introduced to The Faith Mission and God made His clear call on their lives. On November 1, 2007, the Evans joined The Faith Mission (in Canada) first as Area Workers responsible for the Greater Kamloops area and then as managers of the Falkland Centre.God has blessed Kevin & Janice with five children and four grandchildren.
Jeff and Jani Goudy and their six children – Annah, Caleb, Matthew, Lizzy, Keziah and Micah are grateful for the opportunity to serve with The Faith Mission in Red Deer Alberta. Jeff felt clearly called into full-time ministry almost 20 years ago. Shortly after that, he married Jani and they moved to Winnipeg where he began training with Pastor Bill McLeod. Jeff had the privilege of pastoring for 13 years. Since being saved, Jeff and Jani have shared a burden for prayer, evangelism and revival. During the winter of 2008, God began to lay on their hearts the work of The Faith Mission. After much prayer, they felt a clear calling to the Mission and are amazed at how perfectly God has worked all things out. He is definitely at work in the hearts of men, women, young people and children.God blessed their ministry in Saskatchewan. We praise God for people who were converted and for Christians who have grown in their faith.Jeff and Jani appreciate your continued prayer support. If you wish to contact Jeff and Jani they would love to hear from you!

Myron and Janet were both raised in Christian homes and came to know the Lord as children but didn’t fully surrender their lives and truly walk with Christ until they were young adults.
They both grew up and lived in York Region and served in their home church through music ministry, bible study, compassionate ministries and prayer as well as both children and youth work. They were-and are-committed to serve God in every way He leads- through their working lives and the relationships that evolved, to several short-term service trips to serve as youth and child resource persons for their denomination’s Latin American Missionaries Retreats. This was a great delight and blessing!
Before joining the work of the Faith Mission, Myron had his own Renovation business and Janet had her own house cleaning business. They were involved with the Faith Mission for many years, often helping out with cooking when there was a need. Myron served on the Faith Mission Board for a time as well.
In 2013 God called them to join the work of the Faith Mission in Canada and they answered His call to serve there. They now use their God-given skills and gifts as they manage the Faith Mission Camp Centre in Campbellville, ON.
They have been married since 1986 and have 3 children- 2 grown and married and 1 still living at home

Mark and April met at Heritage College in Cambridge, Ontario. After graduation they were married and began ministering together in the Ottawa Valley.

Laura-Anne grew up on a farm in North Eastern Ontario. She was raised in a Christian home and gave her life to the Lord at a young age. When she was a teenager she spent a few summers with The Faith Mission in Ontario doing camps and VBS’s. After high school she went to Nipawin Bible College in Saskatchewan. Later, she returned home and sought God’s will for her life. While she waited on God, Laura-Anne worked and served God in her home church. In the summer of 2010 she again joined The Faith Mission in Ontario as a summer worker and joined the work full-time in 2011.
Debra was raised in a Christian home in Northern Ontario and was saved at a young age at a VBS led by the Faith Mission. She served with the Faith Mission for a few summers, until she completed high school. Debra went on to attend Briercrest Bible College in Saskatchewan and, upon her return home, served the Lord in her local church. During the summer of 2007, as she continued to seek God’s direction, God clearly led Debra to The Faith Mission and to the work in Québec.
Robin was born and raised in a small French-Catholic town in Northern Ontario and spent thirty years of his life knowing about God, but not knowing who God really was according to His Word. He was first introduced to the message of salvation in university through one of God’s faithful servants and zealously accepted Jesus as his Saviour. Following university, Robin pursued his career dreams until God changed his heart and gave him the desire to serve full-time in ministry. Although he was willing to leave everything to serve Him, God asked him to wait until the proper time. It wasn’t until about a year later that He brought Debra into his life. Debra and Robin were married in the fall of 2014 and now serve the Lord together with The Faith Mission in the province of Québec.
Sam - I was raised in a Christian home by a mother of vibrant faith.
Though God's hand was upon my life from birth, I did not come to a personal saving faith in Christ until I was 20 years old. From the age of 12 to 20, I lived in darkness and aimlessly went about life. I became a drug addict and immoral. I found myself homeless and lost. Though I can see now God was drawing me all along the way, it wasn’t until I was invited to church that God touched my heart. God provided me with a job and He sovereignly led a lady to pursue me with the gospel. Shortly after I gave my life to Christ. The drug addiction was immediately broken and I knew that I was forgiven and loved by God. I loved Jesus, the Bible and the local church. The direction of my life was changed. True hope and purpose now marked me in Christ.
Nicholette - I was born in Jamaica and with that came a cultural familiarity with Christianity. We attended church regularly but genuine Christian witness in reality was absent from our home. Upon coming to Canada, I found myself in the foster care system. Along with the tough life changes, I found myself inoculating my pain and loss of worth with fleshly desires, the world, and all that’s in it. I thought I had respect for God by not directly taking his name in vain but in reality my life did just that. I became overcome with the fear of the dark and night terrors. When I saw a cross or dark clouds in the sky, I would think about the coming of Christ and the judgement. I knew my soul wasn't right to meet God. Not long after, my memory of the gospel returned. Upon believing in Christ, God delivered me. He saved me from my darkness and fears. The trajectory of my life changed as I followed my Saviour and found a home among the family of God.
