Vanessa was born and raised in cold, small-town Labrador. From a young age, she encountered God and He began to nurture her heart towards ministry. She moved to Ontario to pursue a Biblical theology degree, attending colleges in both Ontario and Kenya, Africa.
After college, she moved to Ottawa where she met and married Marco. They served in churches in Ottawa and then in Red Deer, AB. God was gradually moving Vanessa from one coast of Canada to the other when Marco and her moved their family to BC to obediently follow God’s call to the Vancouver area to church plant.
Vanessa is compelled by a deep love for Jesus and to share the treasure of Him and His word with others. Along with her passion for all things organization and decorating, she loves learning and spending time exploring new places with her husband, Marco, and their three kids, Josiah, Khaim, and Nakita
