Alumni Profile: Mark DuBois

I was a member of Lift Church back in its early days of formation. I valued it so much because people, Adrienne Paulsen/Martens in particular, were so intentional about making you feel welcome and wanted. I know that this is still one of the great aspects at Lift Church today. Robin and I went out […]

Alumni Profile: Ellie Ramirez

My name is Ellie Ramirez and it has been a little over a year since I graduated from McMaster University with a degree in Psychology. Hamilton became my home after living and studying there for four years. I thought there was no other place I would rather live but here, especially after having been renewed […]

It was an awesome opportunity to see how God could use my life experiences to share my faith and encourage and challenge other student athletes in their […]

Jonathan Taylor

I graduated from Kinesiology at Mac in 2011. Six years ago! Hard to believe. I finished and didn’t have a clear understanding of my next steps. It was a little daunting because while in university, when people asked me what I did, I told them I was a student and each conversation went fairly similarly; […]

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 […]
