Senior Pastor: Carter Krahn
Carter was born in 1977 in Edmonton AB and raised by his parents in Edson AB. Through his
dads job they moved continually through out his growing up years living mainly in Alberta
and Manitoba. Growing up in the church he had always felt the presence on God in his
life and he asked God to lead his life in the summer of 1987.

from God. He went through a very large challenge in his life where he faced a life and death
situation and was pulled into a closer walk with God. Since 2003 he has served the Lord
in full time ministry focused mainly on youth ministry. In 2009 he graduated from
Providence College with a B.A. In Youth Leadership Studies.

Youth Director: Aaron Murray
Aaron was born in Newmarket Ontario in 1991 to loving parents who raised him to know the scriptures. However with all the knowledge Aaron gleaned in his early years he had no relationship with Christ. He moved away to university in 2010 without knowing the power of the gospel. Aaron earned a B.A Degree in Child Health from Brock University. It was during the third year of his degree that God intervened and grabbed a hold of Aaron’s heart and life. Aaron’s desire became to serve God in ministry. By God’s providence Aaron and his wife Melissa were married and moved to Sioux Lookout in the fall of 2015.
