We have many gifted men and women who teach at Mile Two who have various church experience and come from all walks of life. Each of our teachers meets these two requirements:

  1. They are gifted communicators who teach the truths of Scripture in an understandable and meaningful way.
  2. They are living a life of discipleship.  They follow Jesus with all their hearts and live a life worth imitating.

The following are a sample of some of the instructors teaching at Mile Two.

Counsellor, Youth for Christ Portage

Carla grew up in a Plymouth Brethren church as a child but later moved in Charismatic, Catholic, Pentecostal, Mennonite and Christian Missionary Alliance Church settings. She has taught Sunday School to youth for many years and loves teaching youth and young adults especially because they face important choice points that can change the trajectory of their lives and because there is often a flexibility of heart and mind that hungers for change and authenticity that is refreshing.

Carla works part time with Youth for Christ in Portage where she counsels and mentors youth and also on a First Nations reserve with junior high kids in the school as well as with other community members.
