Title on Board: Chair
Family: Married to Jan Stuckey for 55+ years
Home Church: The Gathering Church
Occupation: presently semiretired, my life has been about teaching and pastoring – Interim Exec Dir of BGC Canada, Assoc Pastor of The Gathering, adjunct teaching with ACTS Seminaries and interim president of Canadian Baptist Seminary, pastor of Ellerslie Road Baptist Church, and pastor of Grace Bible Church in Dauphin, MB. Before that, I was a history teacher in London, ON.
Past Experience with LPC: Along the way, I have been actively involved with two Christian camps – Dauphin Bible Camp (5 years as Board member, chair, and director of Family Camp), and Lone Prairie (23 years as pastor of a supporting church, then 10 more with other BGC ministries). I hugely value the work of LPC through the years, and recognize its enduring contribution to a host of young, but maturing lives. This is clearly a new and challenging era for Christian camping with a host of new issues to process.

Occupation: I work as a maintenance engineer for Imperial Oil at Strathcona Refinery
Past Experience with LPC: I attended LPC as a camper for many years, later transitioning into LPC’s Leadership Training (CLT) program. After completing the CLT program, I was a cabin leader at camp the following summer. Camp has had an incredible impact on my life and my relationship with God. I have seen similar impacts in the lives of many youth that I have mentored at my church and I’m excited to see how God will continue to use LPC to mature and grow his disciples.

From 2009-2016 I have the incredible opportunity of volunteering as summer staff, in varying capacities at Halkirk Circle Square Ranch, with one year spent in full-time camp ministry as program staff. Additionally, I have been involved in summer camp missions work in Eastern Europe. Camp ministry has been so formative in my walk with Jesus and in helping me to discover my calling in youth ministry. It is a joy to be able to pour into the future of camp ministry and continue to help provide for youth people to encounter God and become committed followers of Jesus.
Past Experience on the LPC Board (if any): This is my first year serving on the LPC board.

Occupation: I work part-time as a Public Health Nurse for AHS and I volunteer with the Pregnancy Care Center Edmonton, with Young Life Capernaum, with CHiLD (Community Health, International Learning & Development) & in our neighbourhood.
Past Experience with LPC: Like many on the board I’m a firm believer in the benefits of camp. I grew up going to 4-H and Rural Education and Development camps. When I was at Augustana for University I was exposed to Christian community and God’s word. After making a personal decision of faith I was able to work the following two summers at Wilderness Ranch, a Christian summer camp in southern Alberta. From there during nursing school I started volunteering and later worked on staff for Young Life. YL is a parachurch youth ministry with a large camping component. All of this time in summer camping has been hugely foundational to who I am today. It was actually my husband that had the first LPC experience as camper in elementary school. More recently our kids have all gotten involved through friends. It has been very encouraging seeing them grow and mature in their walks of faith and leadership abilities. Over the last couple years I have enjoyed the opportunity to help in the kitchen for a couple weeks of camp. I’m so very grateful for LPS’s commitment to discipleship training; challenging the next generation of youth to take on the adventure of living life for God in very tangible ways.
Past Experience on the LPC Board (if any): This is my second year serving on the LPC board.
