Janet Lammers, Board Chair for DFC since 2016. She has been involved with Dunamis and PRMI since the early 90’s. She has been in leadership roles in Dunamis events both in Canada and the US, and involved in the Prayer Endeavor in Israel. She is also an apprentice teacher. Dunamis has had a powerful effect on Janet both personally; in deepening her relationship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit but also in helping to clearly identify her gifting and calling; learning/experiencing how to fully engage in them. Most notable is her call to intercession (as a participant) teaching others how to pray, create teams and bring intercession into the local congregation. Janet has been married to Peter Lammers since 1984. They have 4 grown children and 2 grandchildren. Janet’s hobbies include photography (which she calls her happy place) she also enjoys walking in all seasons, snowshoeing, golfing and camping.
Rev. Victor Laarman is a child of God, a husband to Chelsea, a father of five beautiful children, and a pastor of a small Christian Reformed church in Collingwood ON. Convinced that success in ministry would not come through his own ingenuity or through finding the ‘right program’, Victor was looking for a better way to pastor a church and reach his neighbours for Christ. When a brochure for Growing the Church in the Power of the Holy Spirit arrived in the mail shortly after starting his pastoral ministry in 2016, he knew he had to attend. Since then, Victor, along with Chelsea, have been learning what it means to join in God’s mission in the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit. He currently serves as vice-chair of the DFC Board of Directors.
