They have two terrific adult children: Charissa and son-in-law Ryan, Jonas and daughter in-law Erica.

His favourite food is pie, as long as they don’t have raisins.
Raised in a Christian home but made a full dedication to God in my early teens. This hunger after God lead me to go on several missions trips with my youth group – downtown Toronto, England twice and to Spain. I also love to worship God as it allows me to draw closer to Him. Started singing on my youth worship team and haven’t stopped since. It’s a privilege and honour to worship The Almighty God. I have 3 wonderful children who are the joy of my life.
Born and raised in the Greater Toronto Area, Pastor Isaac Marmelo has been credentialed with the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada (PAOC) since 2013. He and Diana were married in 2004 and have one son, Caleb, who is 5. Pastor Isaac enjoys worshiping (playing and listening), sports (all of them, but baseball if he has to pick one) and movies (when it comes to superhero movies...he’s Team Marvel all the way!). His heart for Awaken Your Movement is that it gives youth a solid foundation for and prepares them for the hard questions they or their friends may have about their faith.
Born in sunny Portugal, Diana moved to Canada at the age of 5. She is the oldest of 3 girls, which explains her nurturing instinct. She accepted Jesus at the age of 14 and this has helped shape her view that our kids are not the church of tomorrow but of today. She believes that investing in children today by helping them know who they are in Christ, will make a big impact as they grow. We couldn’t end this off without mentioning that Diana is the wife of our Student Ministries Pastor (Isaac) and Caleb’s mom. Apart from enjoying those two roles, she loves to read, play board games and believes that chocolate is one of greatest creations of mankind.

Tricia has an infectious enthusiasm for Jesus, people, pretty things, and clever words. Oh…and good food too. She was once referred to as ‘the gatherer of people around a table’ because of her love of cooking and sharing meals with others. In addition, to her creative role on staff, she and Robert, her husband, lead The Living Room, our young adult community at AC. They have two teenage sons, Isaiah and Noah and a family dog Duke. Tricia sees creativity as just another one of God’s gifts that He entrusts us with to build His Kingdom. She’s always asking herself, ‘What is in my hand that I can use?’.
