Our Speaker

  • Sean Gurnsey

    Sean Gurnsey has a long history with Clearwater Bible College.  He was saved at age 18 at one of the youth retreats and received his BA in Theology there a few short years later.  Outside of working at the college for eight years in various roles, Sean has worked primarily in youth ministry. He served as Program Director for Joe’s Place in Moose Jaw Saskatchewan for five years until he and his wife and four children moved back to Peers, AB, where he has been the Youth Pastor at Carrot Creek Christian Fellowship for the past five years, as well as a voice actor. 


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.
