daniel fewster

Daniel Fewster is on the leadership team at Maranatha Church in Niverville, Manitoba. He has an itinerant ministry where he travels and teaches the gospel, evangelism and living out Christianity in everyday life. He attended Capernwray Bible School in Carnforth, England, as well as the School of Biblical Studies offered through Youth With A Mission in Turner Valley, Alberta. Both offered amazing experiences through which he gained knowledge about the Bible. 

In Daniel’s own words, “They seem now like steppingstones leading to and undergirding what would happen years later. After much, much studying and acquiring knowledge, the gospel finally came alive to me when Jesus illuminated the Truth of Himself to me in my heart. All of the scriptures started really making sense to me after I encountered the real Jesus. The Bible was meant to reveal Jesus. We are meant to reveal Jesus. Jesus is teaching me to reveal Him to the world through not only my words, but through the life I live. And I desire to help others accomplish the same.”  

Daniel is currently involved in building a discipleship program geared towards walking out the gospel in power. He is also committed to helping people develop and experience “hands-on” kingdom living. He lives with his wife and 3 children in Niverville, MB. 

mickey dietz

Hey there, my name is Mickey Dietz and I have the privilege of being able to lead musical worship at the Clearwater College Youth Retreat November 4-6. Let me tell you a little about myself. 

I have 3 amazing kids, Jacob, Hannah and Caitlin. I currently work in Oilfield Sales and run a couple of side businesses. In addition to those things I'm on the leadership team at Living Branches Community Church in Rocky Mtn. House, AB and I'm also the head of the Music Ministry there. I've been leading musical worship for over 30 years in children, youth and church settings, and it's something I deeply love doing. Oh I almost forgot to mention I'm also an Alumni of Clearwater College (Living Faith Bible College) from which I graduated way back in the 1900's. 

I can't wait to worship together with all of you in November. See you then.

clearwater youth encounter Mission

What would it look like if you were face to face with God? If you were to encounter God in that way, would you stay the same? What would change? These are some of the questions we ask every time we begin planning a Clearwater Encounter event. 

Our aim is to give young people the opportunity to experience God in a real way, to present the Gospel of Christ, and to extend the Kingdom of God through the equipping of young believers for ministry through the power of the Holy Spirit.
