Breakout Session:  Insights into personal prayer

Born and raised in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, Kaitlyn came to know Christ in new depths and heights at her first Ignite – during the summer following grade 11 - and hasn’t looked back since. Now an active volunteer in the FacetoFace mission for the last 6 years, Kaitlyn has & continues to grow with the Lord through the witness of those she encounters in her role within relational ministry. She has loved calling Saskatoon home & is forever changed by her students and work kiddos (ask her about them sometime!) whose lives have been such a gift to be apart of.
