Dick and Joan are very experienced in ministry, having pastored several large churches in the city of Lethbridge for many years. Under their ministry leadership, Streets Alive, a ministry to the poor and needy of the city, was born and a few years later, they founded the Miracle Channel and led this ministry from 1994 until 2007. Under their leadership, this ministry grew from a local television station to a national and international work that touched many lives.
After a hiatus from the ministry, they felt a call to begin God-centred worship services where Holy Spirit had freedom to move. With much encouragement from those around them and confirmation from Holy Spirit, they started Third Day Worship Centre of Lethbridge, AB.
