Hometown: Edmonton, AB
Occupation: Children’s Pastor
Faith felt called since the age of thirteen to be a minister in the Christian Church. Growing up in small-town Caledonia, Ontario she has always dreamed of going all over the world to be able to learn and work in diverse environments. Thankful for her family’s support, she knows that no matter how far she goes, her family will always be her “number one fan”. At the age of fifteen she went to El Salvador to minister to children through children’s programs, and then again at sixteen for two months. Then at eighteen, she ministered and taught English in China, Thailand, and Hong Kong. Having traveled to thirteen countries altogether, in her youth Faith also gained a multitude of experiences serving in Canada. She served doing homeless ministry in Vancouver, cleaning churches in NWT, and leading worship and youth in her local church. Faith currently attends Vanguard College in Edmonton, Alberta working towards completing her Bachelor’s degree in Theology (Intercultural Studies). She is also currently serving as a Children’s Pastor at an Ethiopian church and has a passion to end the prejudice around women in ministry. She endeavours to encourage every woman, young or old, to pursue their God-given dreams, including being a lead pastor! She wants to influence everyone that ministry is not just a male-dominated job, but it is for all people who have the heart and passion to see the world transformed by the love of God.
Creativity has also been a big part of Faith’s life. She started dancing when she was three, moving to a competitive level at the age of twelve and continued for seven years. She performed jazz, hip hop, lyrical, contemporary, ballet and pointe. Faith’s love for performing also led her to take modelling lessons for a short time as well. Growing up Faith took interest in songwriting, singing and playing the piano which led her to releasing a song called “Trust” in June 2019. She is also currently working towards her first Album.
