Speakers & Bands

Jason Ballard

When I was little I wanted to be a country singer like Garth Brooks, so I grew a mullet. Today I live in Aldergrove, BC with my wonderful wife Rachael. My favourite snack is a homemade cookie, but you can never have just one. I did my undergraduate degree in English and Business at Simon Fraser University.

Jason works with Youth Alpha Canada to write the Youth Alpha films and is a part time Assistant Pastor at Christian Life Assembly in Langley, BC. 


Shalom Reimer

Fort Langley’s Shalom Reimer was crowned Miss Teen BC in her home town at this year’s Miss BC Pageant held at Chief Sepass Theatre in July 2015. She is passionate about Jesus and uses her platform of being Ms. Teen BC to be light in the darkness. 

She is currently a grade 12 student at Pacific Academy in Surrey, BC
