Freedom That Lasts® Canada is an extension of the ministry philosophy of Lighthouse Baptist Church as reflected in its mission statement.

“Cultivating a lifestyle of worship, obedience, and service through Jesus Christ.”

It is the sanctifying work of God in the believer's life which makes him more like Jesus Christ, frees him from his bondage to sin, and equips that believer to fulfill the first and second great commandments of Jesus reflected in the mission statement above.

PASTOR DAVID PRUDEN, Canadian Executive Director

Pastor David was born in a small Northern town in Saskatchewan called Uranium City, where he lived for the first 18 years of his life. His early life revolved around participating in many different types of sporting activities and spending time in the wilderness, which was literally just outside his back door.

In 1989 he married Michelle and over the next two years they welcomed their sons Adam (Anna) and Josh (Stephanie).

In the summer of 1991 both David and Michelle trusted Christ to save them and they were baptized in early 1992.

Very early in his walk with Christ, David felt that God was calling him to the pastorate. For the next 13 years the Prudens lived a life joyfully and thankfully serving Christ as they waited on God’s leading concerning pastoral ministry.

David feels honored to have served as part of the body of Christ at Lighthouse Baptist Church since the spring of 2005 when God very clearly called him to be the senior pastor. Although David still has an appreciation for sports, the passion of his life is to minister through evangelism and the equipping of the saints for their roles in the church.

David was ordained by the church in 2008 and is continually taking seminary classes to help grow in the knowledge of God and His ways. He also sits on the board of Foundation Baptist College and is very burdened to support the College in any way for God to train up young men & women for the work of the ministry.

Lighthouse Baptist Church is the Head Office for Freedom That Lasts® addiction ministry and David is the Canadian Director.
