For 26 years, Tammy has taught and trained children and youth in various settings and has worked with these groups and their families at PTC since 2010. When asked to describe a ministry highlight she said, “There are many, but the one that stands out is directing and leading the Stix ’n’ Stuff youth drama team in Three Hills. What an exciting time—we presented the gospel to many who may not have otherwise heard of Jesus’ love.” You don’t have to be around Tammy for long to realize she is passionate about helping lead young people to serve and love Jesus wholeheartedly.
With a twinkle in her eye, Tammy says she has shared and enjoyed 36 years with her best friend and husband Jerry; they have five children and just recently welcomed their second grandchild. In addition to camping, reading, and long pleasant rides with Jerry, Tammy loves spending time with friends and family.
Gaylene could honestly say she has spent most of her life in school. BSc, BEd from Brandon University, BRE and MA in Christian Counselling from Briercrest Bible College and Seminary, teaching high school and Bible college for twenty years, and forty-nine years in God’s school of learning. Her spiritual gifts are in encouragement, teaching, and faith. Thus in her “spare time”, she has invested a multitude of hours in coaching, mentoring, and camp ministry. The most recent years have seen the challenge and reward of initiating the ministry of Rehoboth Christian Ministries in Three Hills and seeing the individuals who are supported flourish in their lives and relationships.
