Stephen Thiessen is someone who has experienced the joys and tensions of servant leadership in Christian ministry with teenagers and young adults. He worked with Torchbearers International for over 15 years, filling various roles from maintenance man to Bible School Principal and Resident Lecturer at Capernwray Harbour Bible Centre. He also provided leadership for over 10 years as the Director at Capernwray Quebec Bible Centre. Steve loves Jesus and has a gift for Bible teaching. His quick wit, often humorous illustrations, and contagious energy help make the teaching accessible for everyone.
Now, in obedience to the Lord Jesus, Steve finds himself the owner and manager of Shiloh Forest Farm (Vancouver Island, BC), where he and his wife, Fiona (and 5 kids: Joshua, Anna, Mary, Timothy and Josiah) are nurturing “happy, healthy, sustainably grown food”. The lessons of servant leadership continue here just the same as they would at any Bible school because Jesus’ calling on our lives is the same in any location.
You can expect to hear great Bible teaching and be challenged to live out your faith with increasing authenticity as you come and share in this weekend with Steve!
