Adrian & Carolyn Crowder

Shortly after being married by none other than Pastor Robin, we packed up our little Honda Civic and made the drive to the west coast with no jobs or place to call home. God has blessed us exceedingly in this move and shown us again how he goes before us to prepare the way. Within 24 hours of arriving to BC, Carolyn had a job offer and we had found an apartment! After finishing his master’s degree in civil engineering with a focus on seismic design in 2016, Adrian has been working with a structural engineering firm in downtown Vancouver. Carolyn, having completed a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2014, has found work at BC Women’s Hospital in their labour and delivery unit. When we are not working, we have been exploring Vancouver’s many restaurants and hikes, and hope to conquer the Grouse Grind in the summer.

We have become involved with a relatively new church plant called CityLights where we have already felt so welcomed and challenged. Vancouver is one of the most unreached and under-churched cities in Canada, and we are excited to be a part of this mission of building God’s church in this beautiful city. We miss our LIFT family, but are so encouraged by the work that God is doing through you. We are praying for you, that you would have boldness and confidence in your work for the Lord.
