Dave is wholeheartedly involved in a lot of things, both in the Christian world and the secular one. He hosts a men's retreat at RockRidge in Princeton. He does men's conferences and other speaking engagements. Dave is a promoter and a great guy. We are pleased to have him join us.
DeQuin Evans is the quiet type. Oh, he's not at all shy and speaks mightily for the Lord. He is all about building confidence in others, starting with himself. If you were at the BC Lions' Faith and Family Night 2017, then you saw DeQuin's heart for others. He spoke about the reality of Jesus Christ and our need to share His Gospel with our friends, as well as with strangers. DeQuin is a real down-to-earth guy. His testimony is genuine. We are pleased to have DeQuin wrapping up our day together. Thank you, Athletes in Action and Dave Klassen.

We are partnering with NightShift Ministries and their food truck to bring a premium hot lunch to our men's conference. This does increase the price of lunch, and ISI is investing in each lunch sold, but the net profits go to support the excellent work of NightShift as they reach out to support the less advantaged. Your cost for lunch is $12. Tips and donations are encouraged.
