Ian and Elaine Gillngham
The Gillinghams, established in intercession and the prophetic, bring spiritual depth and wisdom to The War College. Experience in congregational leadership, personal ministry, and reconciliation efforts enables them to offer excellent training from a perspective on the edge of what God is doing in these days. They will also share their burden for the more fragile in our world, and specifically, in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside.

Adjunct Faculty:

Major Jamie Braund
Majors Jamie & Ann Braund (with their 3 children) are the Corps Officers at Cariboo Hill Temple (formerly Vancouver Temple) in British Columbia.

In the last 3 years, there has been a deliberate effort to be more mission-focused and evangelistic. A new street outreach ministry has taken members of the congregation back to the original location of the Corps now called Vancouver's downtown eastside - known as the poorest district in Canada.

Michael Collins
Michael is a throw-back, a greatheart, a passionate, zealous warrior. This larger-than-life soldier puts the fear of God into the enemy. He leads the war on several fronts out of the Cariboo Hill Temple. His spirit will stir up and overflow from the students into their worlds.
