Home Church: Emmanuel, Barrie, ON
Tahlia was raised in a Christian home where her parents encouraged her pursuit of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as well as active involvement in the church and surrounding communities. Tahlia accepted Christ at a young age and has continually been seeking Christ throughout her life. God has been working in her heart to trust in Him and His calling for her life.
Tahlia has participated in four short-term mission trips to Poland with her home church, Emmanuel Baptist. She then completed a three-month internship with Josiah Venture in 2014 when she ministered to the youth through evangelistic English camps. These were all unique experiences and helped Tahlia discover her passion for Poland and the direction that God is sending her.
Tahlia studied at Redeemer University College where she was very involved in student leadership. Since graduating, she has been working at an interactive fitness centre for children and she continues to serve in her local church. Through the past year, God has been working to prepare Tahlia for the next phase of life that He has prepared for her.
