Marie is a worship leader at heart, but the Lord has been stretching her in her teaching, writing and speaking over the past few years. Through God's word and her own personal testimony of God’s faithfulness, Marie will share her heart's desire for herself and other women and that desire is to be rooted in a deeper love and understanding of our Lord and to walk in freedom that is found in His word ( Galatians 5:1)
Marie lives with her husband, Dan, in Caledonia, Ontario, and they attend Mission City Bible Church. They are so very thankful to call Wesley Acres home away from home since 2016
The Lord has blessed them with two lovely daughters, wonderful son-in-laws and they are blessed beyond measure to be the grandparents of Matthew and Miriam.

Child of God, Husband and father of 3,(one on the way) Leader of kids ministry and youth at Desert Stream Christian Fellowship.
I believe that the God of the bible is an exciting God. I believe we can have as much of Him as we’re willing to go after. I am eager to see young people connect to a God that loves them unfathomably. That they would find out just how tangibly real He can be in their life as they learn to walk with Him.

I have been involved with Wesley Acres for several years. I have always had a passion for children's ministry at camp as that is where as a young child I gave my heart to the Lord. During the school year teach music part-time. I live north of Kingston on a farm where we raise cattle, make maple syrup and have a variety of other small endeavours.
