Since March 1982, Dan Marritt has faithfully served in the roll of Lighting Director/Camera Operator at CCCI/YES TV. In addition to his excellent work ethic, Dan also has a powerful testimony about how Jesus has worked in his life. Today he joins us to share his story – a story of pride, repentance, and transformation through a relationship with Jesus Christ!
John Courtney has spent a good portion of his life serving with Youth for Christ, 47 years he served as Executive Director of Youth for Christ Winnipeg and he now fills the role of Development Coach for Youth for Christ International serving YFC National Directors around the world. This is quite remarkable when you consider that, on his Grade 8 Graduation Day, John was told by his elementary school Vice Principal that “he was stupid and would never amount to anything.” These words definitely had an impact and John became a high school dropout. But, his story, God’s story and plan for his life, was nowhere near finished! John shares his remarkable story of a life transformed and called by God to vocational Christian ministry, and later in life he went on to earn two Masters degrees and Honorary Doctorate. Woven throughout John’s journey is a diagnosis with an incurable cancer, and a healing story only possible through God’s power. John’s life has been filled with many answers to prayer, and also God’s amazing provision as he’s served with Youth for Christ – most recently the provision for a $14M building project in the heart of Winnipeg which has allowed the ministry to go from annually reaching 4,300 to 11,000 youth! John’s testimony is evidence that God can work in amazing ways in the lives of those who place their hope and trust in Him. https://yfc.ca/
Keith & Kristyn Getty
Keith Getty joins us to share about the challenges faced by believers around the world in this current moment in history, from literal persecution to just simply meeting together. The Getty’s have found there is a distinct connection between singing, creativity, and hymns which are full of truth and hope, and how these help Christians to persevere through difficult times. Recently, Keith and Kristyn released a version of the classic hymn “It Is Well with My Soul” which is being used as the closing track to a forthcoming movie about Sabina (and Richard) Wurmbrand, the founders of Voice of the Martyrs www.persecution.com The movie deals with persecuted Christians and is particularly poignant in how it relates to the current moment in the Middle East. http://gettymusic.com
