God Uses Ebenezer House to Mobilize Prayer
Posted: September 19, 2019
The vision for Ebenezer House was born when Martin and Marlene Boardman were driving from Brooks to Drumheller, AB and stopped to look at a property for sale with a red and white chapel. They imagined a place where people could pray together, encourage each other, and be led by the Holy Spirit.
It took two years and three attempts to purchase the property and during that time the Boardmans’ faith was stretched. It took time to sell their current property, and they met roadblocks with other financial institutions who slowed down the process and didn’t understand their unique needs.
Christian Credit Union took the opportunity to be part of something that God was building, simplified the approval process, and provided financing in 48 hours. Recently, many prayers were answered by our heavenly Father when the vision for Ebenezer House became a reality.
Martin Boardman is Prayer Mobilizer for Dunamis Fellowship Canada, working with Presbyterian Reformed Ministries International. For more information, visit https://www.dunamisfellowshipcanada.org/

Blue Rein Ranch offers a blend of counselling and animal assisted therapy to help people heal from trauma and abuse, as well as cope with mental health concerns like anxiety, depression, ADHD, or grief. Marvin and Erica VandenHoek were operating the business on their ranch but were restricted by the weather and wanted to provide services year round. Christian Credit Union recognized their vision, passion for the future, and desire to serve more people. We provided financing to build an indoor riding arena and participated in a fundraiser for the Blue Rein Ranch Foundation.
