Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson
Inspirational and comedic speaker, Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson, is the co-host for the national daily show, The 700 Club Canada. God called her to the media miraculously one night in 1999. In her television career, she has been privileged to speak on camera with many great men and women of faith like Josh McDowell, Tony Campolo, Patsy Clairmont, Bill Hybels, Dr. Gary Smalley, Liz Curtis Higgs, Dr. Gary Chapman, Pat Robertson, Kay Arthur and Thelma Wells. She has been on stage as a special guest with the Women of Faith. Over 90 of her personal interviews have aired on The BIOGRAPHY Channel Canada. Laura-Lynn's success simply stands as a testimony to her life’s passion for serving God and people with all her heart.
As a multi award winning Playwright, Director, Composer & Filmmaker, Cheryl Nembhard continues to make her mark in the entertainment industry. Cheryl has become known as one of the premier storytellers in Toronto, presenting her art in creative, cutting edge, and bold ways.
Cheryl’s impact is felt far beyond the stage as she has dedicated most of her life to community service and helping those in need. For many years, she has been involved in the rehabilitation of troubled youth, former gang members, ex drug addicts, rape victims and teenage mothers. She has focused her life to working and establishing creative spaces for them to discover themselves and find healing.
Cheryl is a powerful and inspiring Speaker/Host who motivates women and youth to walk boldly in their Divine Purpose & live their fullest and best lives.
Tara Lalonde is a registered psychotherapist in Ontario, author, and speaker who has been helping people find life transforming change for over a decade. She has a Masters of Divinity from Tyndale Seminary and a PhD in Professional Counseling from Liberty University, which allow her to not only address therapeutic issues, but also equip her with a keen understanding of how the Christian faith integrates with and infiltrates all of our lives. Her deep compassion and heart for people help her to connect with her clients, readers, and audiences to provide them with hope and grace. She combines this with her wisdom and her unwavering commitment to walk with people to a place of healing. Through her counseling, writing, and speaking she helps individuals and couples find hope, peace, and joy, even when life circumstances do not always change around them.
Troyce Roe was fortunate to be born into a family with a strong Christian heritage. However, she learned early that her own personal experience with Christ was of utmost importance and she gave her heart to Jesus at a very young age. She has a heart after God and loves to be involved in helping people to become more passionately related to Him. She has contributed to the life of the church in varying capacities over the years, including twelve years with Aglow International Canada in leadership roles on a local and area board level.
Bookkeeping has been her work career for over 40 years, 24 of which were spent with one firm. When it downsized, life took an unexpected turn which eventually led her to start her own business. For Troyce, life is ministry.
Her journey has been one of learning to face life’s many challenges in the strength and rest of the LORD. She looks for ways to gain perspective and wisdom, as well as welcoming opportunities to bless others with what she has gleaned in the process. She is known to be approachable and interruptible. She loves life and maintains a deep faith in God and His Word.
She and Ian were married in 1979 and live in North York. They have three children. The first two await her in heaven. Jonathan, with his wife, Tanya, both live in the Toronto area and are actively involved in their church.
C4 Church is known for a mix of cut-through-the-noise expository Bible teaching and creative worship experiences where God’s presence is felt powerfully and people sing their hearts out.
C4 is seeing lives transformed, marriages restored, prodigals return, young people engaged, and miraculous signs and wonders.
The songs C4 Worship sings, writes, and records in this season are an outpouring of praise to God for what he is doing amongst us in a season of revival. We pray that C4 Worship would minister to Christ and to his Church as we give Him the glory and pray for His Kingdom come.
Lorie Hartshorn is the Pastor of Adult Ministries at C4 Church. She is also a national speaker, author and Bible teacher with a love for God’s Word and the hope and power that its truth brings to others! She is a co-journeyer with you and shares candidly with authenticity and conviction how the Lord has met her in seasons of pain and plenty.
Nicole Crisp hails from a small farm town in Saskatchewan, is married to Mat, and adventured out to Ontario to serve in ministry with their 2 young kids. Nicole is a talented worship leader and award winning songwriter and artist with her husband Mat Crisp. Growing up in the church, they both have seen the polarizing sides of what a healthy church and what an unhealthy church can look like. There have been incredible stories of hope, life-change, resiliency but also tragic stories of pain and disappointment. But through it all, they know that Christ remains the centre and foundation of it all; all for His glory and fame. They believe in the church and it’s ability to reach our world as well as its importance in everyone’s lives. Thus, they have committed themselves to growing and investing in it. Today Nicole lives in Bowmanville and her family calls C4 Church home.
Joanna La Fleur
After completing an undergrad in Communications and Business, Joanna began her career in the world of high tech marketing and PR, before learning that she didn’t care so much for the “big black boxes” she was selling. She began to make some shifts towards using her skill set for church communications- something she continues to be passionate about and now works in full time. Recently she finished her Masters in Theology at University of Toronto, with a thesis focus in how to use the latest digital communication tools for evangelism and discipleship. She believes that the Church has the most important message in the world, so she’s trying to help churches be the best communicators in the world. For Joanna, the primary focus of this work is as Creative Communications Director at C4 Church. Joanna brings authenticity, passion, and intelligence to the work of communicating things that matter. Whether in speaking, writing, or Instagram, she uses every platform as an opportunity to invite more people into meaningful conversations with just enough cheekiness to put audiences at ease. She is a proud aunt to 11 nieces and nephews, co-host on the “See Hear Love” women’s webshow, a Board Member with InterServe Canada, a delegate of Canada’s Millennial Think Tank, and an advisor to the Institute of Evangelism at Wycliffe College. At a party, you’ll find her close to the guacamole and people who smile.
