Sarah and Michael Bumstead

Volunteer Advocates - Alberta

We are so excited to be a part of this ministry. Awana has been an important part of our lives for many years. Both of us started Awana in elementary school and continued in the program until graduation in grade 12. We met through Awana at the Prairies Scholarship Camp and took part in an Awana MIT (Missionary-in-Training) trip to Ukraine in 2002. We were married in 2006 and graduated from university in 2008: Michael as an Engineer and myself as High School teacher. We always knew that we wanted to have our own children in Awana. Our church home and Awana ministry are at Centre Street Church where Sarah is the Ministry Director for Awana. Throughout our lives, Awana has always provided a firm foundation in God’s word and relationships that have stood the test of time. Now we have the opportunity to be more involved as volunteer Advocates. We want to see the Kingdom of God grow and we want to support the Awana ministry here in Calgary. We look forward to getting to know local Ministry Directors, families, and young people through our current roles.
