A big Happy Father's Day to the loving, honest and caring fathers who work so hard to care for their families! May our Lord continue to bless and use you to lead your children and grandchildren in the good and right ways of God and the Holy Bible. - Pastor Max Solbrekken

 Norwegian immigrants Ingvar and Anne Solbrekken raised a large family on a Saskatchewan farm. As  a former soldier, mechanic and businessman, my Dad quickly adapted to farming with a team of horses and some cattle in 1927, and provided well even through the 'dirty thirties'. After receiving the  Holy Spirit Baptism and a miracle healing of his gall bladder through the Radio ministry of Oral Roberts, he became a human dynamo and spiritual leader in our family. If God had not visited my Dad in such an outstanding way, I do not believe that I would have returned to my covenant with God in my Lutheran Catechism at 15, or be in Christ's Holy Ministry today. I give glory to God and thanks to my mother and  father for their superb examples of genuine born again, Spirit filled Christianity!
