Guest speakers include Prison Fellowship Canada’s own CEO, Stacey Campbell, an experienced facilitator of the Sycamore Tree program.
Stacey has a deep and abiding faith in Jesus Christ. In addition to her executive duties Stacey continues to work hands-on in the PFC national ministry of reconciliation with ‘the least of these’ and practices a Biblical approach to transformation, justice, restoration and prevention based on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Her current work includes working weekly alongside prisoners, ex-prisoners, and victims.
Author Raymond Mowla will also share his powerful testimony of transformation. When Mr. Mowla turned away from his Islamic roots at a young age, he quickly began to indulge in his impulse to pursue a life of crime. Starting with petty thefts and schoolhouse rebellion at a young age, he landed himself in a federal prison with a two-year sentence by the age of 23 – having almost murdered someone. Upon release, his life once again went on a slippery slope that should have led him back to prison, but instead caused him to fall into the arms of Jesus Christ!
Sometimes the heaviest weight we carry around is the one nobody sees. For some regret is that 1000 lb invisible weight that holds us back. It shouts at us from the inner chambers of our heart, it discourages us from taking that next step. In restorative justice helping people move beyond regret involves Jesus speaking afresh into their lives. Jesus does this powerfully in the life of Peter, he does it at a BBQ which is followed by a Q&A. The result? RESTORATION! Guest speaker Mark Kotchapaw is the Senior Pastor at Bethel Church and has been leading in that role since 2008. Currently, Bethel Church is in the process of partnering with Prison Fellowship on the Bethel House Project, providing housing and support to ex-offenders as they undergo the challenging reintegration back into community.
