2017 Schedule and workshop information

Keynote Speaker: Rick Thiessen

RickThiessenRick grew up as the third of four – a farmer’s son, in the Canadian mid-west, in a very churched upbringing, now an unending source of sermon material. His first real surrender to Christ as forgiver and leader came at a camp when he was 15, which lead to a passion for getting this good news out to as many as possible.

Rick met is lovely wife, Johnna at Canadian Bible College (now Ambrose University). They moved to Johnna’s home state to serve in youth ministry and creative arts at a church in Arlington, WA. When that church went through a series of transitions, the irresistible pull to start a church in Marysville that was crazy about people who don’t go to church was planted in their hearts. So in 1995, with their two children, Joren and Jadan who were ages 3 and 1 at the time, and 15 courageous souls, AC3 was born.

Rick has been married to Johnna for nearly 30 years. Their two sons are now married – Joren (Rebecca) and Jadan (Ariel) – and are both actively involved in creative teams, music, acting and writing for the church. Rick and Johnna also have two adopted daughters, Marley (8) and Laila (7), and have fostered many other children since 2010.
