Steven shares Bill Prankard’s vision for spiritual revival in Canada and has the same heart for Canada’s Indigenous people. Under the mentorship of Bill Prankard, Steven has become a dynamic minister of the Gospel across Canada and in communities throughout the Canadian Arctic. His powerful story of God’s miraculous healing power in his life after suffering the trauma of sexual abuse, along with his Inuit heritage, resonates with the youth of Canada’s Arctic. He spearheads the Arctic Hope Project, which is a Spirit-empowered ministry designed to address the epidemic of youth suicide and social crisis in the Arctic, to bring healing and hope to those who are broken, and to prepare Inuit youth to become effective future leaders. Steven’s wife Becky is an integral part of the ministry. They live in Ottawa, Ontario and are parents to five beautiful little girls. http://bpea.com

Marvin Netmaker Jr.
Marvin shares his heart on issues facing First Nation communities and how vitally important it is to break the stereotypes.
Steve was born in the northern Quebec community of Waskaganish. At 5 years of age, he was forced on a sea plane to attend residential school miles from his family home. He endured many things in the schools, and this is where he developed a deep seeded anger towards the missionaries and his parents. The pain in his heart drove him to drugs and alcohol abuse. At 47 years of age, he had a massive heart attack and almost lost his life. While in the hospital he told his wife he was tired of living this way and committed his life to Christ. God has restored everything.
