Meet the Leader
Randy Parizeau is the founder of YWAM Vancouver and is currently serving as our Training Director. He has been serving with YWAM for over 31 years and brings his experience in leadership of starting a couple of YWAM ministry operating locations and leading numerous training schools. The SOMLD came out of a 1 year Internship program that he and Tanya Lyons started in 2010 with their desire to equip and prepare those who were interested in learning more about ministry & leadership in a practical hands on learning environment. In 2013 they turned that Internship into what is now the SOMLD.My desire is to see those coming to this school to get every opportunity to deepen their relationship with God, discover their purpose and place in His Kingdom and to give them the opportunity to walk that out in a practical way.Randy is married to Rita and they have 4 adult children.
