Our Field Director Team

One Hope Canada’s field directors provide essential support to our 48 ministry points as they encourage, direct, and equip our missionaries to fulfill One Hope Canada’s purpose and vision.

Terry Kerr - Saskatchewan Field Director

Bonnie and I became involved in camp ministry in the mid 90s as volunteers for Kenosee Lake Bible Camp in southeast Saskatchewan. After a few years, I joined the camp board, eventually becoming the board chair. In 2011, I started full-time as the Saskatchewan field director for One Hope Canada. Before joining the mission full-time I worked four years for a major oil company and 17 years before that as a police officer. Married for 31 years, we have three children, two of whom are married. Bonnie works with special needs children in the public school system and travels with me during the summer, playing a major role in our ministry.

After graduating from Ontario Bible College with a bachelor of theology in pastoral ministry, Stephen spent 13 years in business, 10 years as a lead solo pastor, ordained with the Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches, and five years as a director with Focus on the Family Canada. Stephen and Beverly, married for 38 years, have four adult children and three grandchildren. When not travelling to ministry points, Stephan pastors a house church. Stephen and Bev enjoy being empty nesters but are blessed with frequent visits by their children.

 

Carole Richard Murphy - Quebec Field Director

Carole has been involved in One Hope Canada (CSSM) since she was seven. From being a camper, to kitchen helper, to cabin leader, she has experienced most aspects of camp ministry. She served on the board of Camp Livingstone and the National Board for four years before joining the mission full time. She has worked with her husband Brian, the director of Camp Livingstone, since June 2006.

 

Ryan Skaling - Atlantic Field Director

Ryan joined One Hope Canada in the fall of 2015 after pastoring for three-and-a-half years in Ontario and 11 years in New Brunswick. He, Joanna, and their four daughters joined the mission to restart the Truth for Youth Bible Camp as Blomidon Bible Camp in his native Nova Scotia. Ryan’s years of leading church ministry motivated him to create a space where believers could grow in Jesus and invite their community to know Him too. After watching God do a good work in that first summer at Blomidon Bible Camp, Ryan became the Atlantic field director in February 2017. Ryan loves to work at the camp with his family, while having the privilege of helping other ministry points in his field bring the hope of knowing Jesus to Atlantic Canada.
