rob+ Camille parkman
Rob & Camille Parkman launched Thrive Ministries to "help people to reach their God-given potential"! They partner with people who have the same heart to see urgent problems solved, such as next generation leaders being raised up (so they don't settle for a lesser calling), vulnerable children being reached (so they don't become a victim to the narrative of others), and leaders being renewed (so they don't burn out).
Camille came to Christ because of a God-encounter in worship! She is an anointed worship leader that has been compared to Kim Walker-Smith. Her new worship album "At Your Feet" is featured on radio stations around the world, on Spotify and on Stingray Music (satellite TV).
Rob came to Christ because people in is community saw his potential and reached out to him as a child with a vulnerable background! As a speaker, coach, and author (REFUEL on Amazon), he has inspired thousands to follow Christ, to see their value, and to go the next level in their destiny.
Sean's passion is to partner with the Lord of the Harvest to raise up and send out a new wave of witnesses and disciple-makers to the harvest field and to pioneer new works for the glory of God. He has been in ministry for 11 years, working predominantly with youth and young adults while speaking at camps, retreats, conferences, and anywhere else the Body of Christ is being equipped. Together with his wife Melissa, Sean spent 6 years sharing Jesus in Central Asia and is now the President of Eston College.
Hi there, my name is Brian Tysdal and I currently serve as Senior Pastor of Strasbourg Alliance Church as well as CEO of Deeper Life@SBC.
I am blessed to be married to the love of my life (Val) for 33 years; have 3 great kids and 3 grandkids. Life is pretty amazing when you can use the words ‘blessed’, ‘great’ and ‘grand’ to describe your family!
I believe with all my heart that Jesus is stirring hearts in a special and powerful way. I see this happening more and more over the last number of years. We are living in a time in history where God is actively calling people to know Him deeply. This means change, and change is challenging. But the Spirit of God is so lovingly relentless in this pursuit of people and that inspires me!
God has been challenging me to understand that my identity is first and foremost rooted in Jesus Christ, and that this identity gives rise to courage to live in a way that brings His kingdom to bear in real life circumstances. And my hope is that you too will encounter this World Changer and Identity Maker in your own life in a genuinely transformative way.

Ron Baker is Saskatchewan born, bred and retired.
The town of Kindersley first saw Ron on his birthday in 1953. His father was a farmer, having taken over the family farm first homesteaded in 1909 by Ron’s grandfather.
While Ron has a farm heritage, his father became a weather forecaster early in Ron’s life. The life of a meteorologist meant that the family moved to such places as Saskatoon, Moose Jaw, Toronto and Regina.
Upon completing high school in Regina, Ron began his educational career. He completed pastoral studies with a Master of Divinity and library studies with a Master of Library Science. He also served as a registrar at Canadian Theological Seminary in Regina and is currently a librarian at Eston College.
While academics are fun for Ron, his real passion is people. Ron began his vocational ministry back at his birth church of Kindersley Alliance, serving for four years as a youth pastor. Other ministry assignments arose in Prince Albert (Music and Worship Pastor – 11 years) and back again to Kindersley (Senior Pastor – 10 years), where he retired.
Ron currently directs the Canadian Small Church Ministry Centre (), affiliated with Small Church Connections. He is often tapped for renovation efforts by his wife, who is a professional house painter and loves to design living spaces. Six children make up his family and he has four grandchildren.
