During high school Pete and his family moved to Brandon to be close to family and serve at our sending church, Calvary Chapel Brandon.

Pete served at Calvary Chapel Brandon for eleven years, six of those years being the Youth Pastor/Assistant Pastor and Media Director. The last five years that Pastor Pete served in Brandon, he felt called and had a burden to plant a church in Edmonton.

Kendra Randall was born and raised in Sarasota, Florida. From a young age she was heavily involved in worship ministry. During junior high, her parents made the decision to find a new church, amongst the Calvary Chapel movement, forever changing and deepening Kendra's walk with the Lord. In her sophomore year of high school, she met Pete and they were married two and a half years later, when she was just nineteen. Over the course of their marriage, Kendra has continued to serve alongside Pete in many areas of ministry. Kendra's heart is to equip women to be students of the Word, for children to be bright lights and bold witnesses, for for people to have a heart of worship, both in song and in service.
