Chris and Karyn BALL
Chris grew up in southern Ontario as a pastor’s kid, and accepted Christ at the age of 8. In high school, Chris was on an overseas mission trip where God called him into ministry. Following high school, he attended Heritage Bible College where he completed a one-year certificate in Bible. During this time he also received flight training at the Waterloo Airport. He realized this was his passion and a practical way to serve God. Chris continued his studies at Prairie School of Mission Aviation in Three Hills, AB, and continued on as a flight instructor after graduation.
Karyn also grew up in Ontario as a pastor’s kid. She accepted Christ at the age of 5 and dedicated herself to following Him through camp and youth ministries. After completing a one year certificate program at Heritage Bible College, she went on a mission trip to Kenya and felt God calling her to missions. She studied biology at York University in Toronto, ON, and then completed teachers college. She taught in an inner city school, furthering her passion for reaching those in need.
Chris and Karyn met during their time at Heritage Bible College. They were married in the summer of 2011, with the dream of entering the mission field together. For the past few years Chris and Karyn have been living in Northern Ontario where Chris gained experience as a pilot serving remote communities. Chris and Karyn are proud parents of a son, William, and daughter, Addy.
