Ethan & Chelsea Fenton
Ethan & Chelsea Fenton are a husband and wife Christian music duo, based out of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, who are passionate about creating authentic worship music for the Church! Supported by the Rootsdeepdown worship collective, Ethan & Chelsea recorded their first full-length album in 2018, entitled Live at Selah. The album was recorded live-off-the-floor, with sixty of their closest friends singing along, and features seven original worship songs (plus a modern take on the classic hymn "It Is Well With My Soul"). Together, Ethan and Chelsea have three wonderful children and they continue to lead worship at their local church. http://rootsdeepdown.com/ethanandchelseafenton
Michelle grew up in an alcoholic home, the oldest with 4 siblings. Her mother was married 3x. There was always upheaval and disfunction, and it wasn’t until much later in her life that she accepted Christ, was baptised, and her family relationships were restored. As a fan of comic books, she was inspired to find out more about Christ after seeing a tract in the form of a comic book. She asked a pastor’s daughter to explain it and was invited to church. From there she accepted Christ and made her way to Bible College. It was there that she met her husband and together they were called to Missions. They spent time in various places across Canada but ended up in Nova Scotia. In 2000, they founded Souls Harbour RESCUE Mission in Regina, Saskatchewan. It became the largest service provider for the homeless in the province, feeding over 100,000 meals each year, and sleeping 90 people each night. A decade later, they once again responded to the call. Ken and Michelle sold all their possessions, packed a few mementos into the back of their Matrix, and drove 4000 km across Canada, strangers in their new home of Halifax. 9 months later, Souls Harbour RESCUE Mission was born. But Ken and Michelle didn’t stop there. They also worked for free - full time - for the first 2 years, in order to give the Mission a head start in becoming established. The Porters have 25 years of experience in the field of addictions recovery. They have assisted over 100 men, women and families off our Canadian streets and into a new life. http://shrm.ca
