iParent Comments

diane“What an amazing weekend my husband and I had in your iParent course. You are such a blessing to those who get to share in your ministry. We left challenged, refreshed, and most of all ‘Armed and ready’ to tackle the next 10+ years of this crazy thing called parenting!”
Diane

ryan“iParent opened my eyes, opened my heart, and gave me hope as a Dad for the future of our family!”
Ryan

rossi“iParent really helped prepare me for some of the trickier stuff in parenting and inspired me to be more intentional in my relationship with my kids. I learned so much about how to really be there for them and how to connect with them as they are getting older. iParent has been invaluable to me!”

Deanna

“It was great to meet Dr. Dave tonight. It just reminds me that when we pray, Jesus is there and listening. iParent is an answer to my prayer as a Dad as I prayed for answers only last Sunday.”

sarrah“If you want to learn how to build a healthy, lifelong connection with your children, iParent is the series you need.”
Sarrah

“i-Parent is the best investment of time that we have made as a parents. Kids don’t come with manuals but i-Parent is the next best thing!

I love the personal stories; Dr. Dave is so honest, relatable and passionate, it’s so easy to listen. Life gets so busy with many distractions, but i-Parent gave us the opportunity to focus on our role as parents and become a stronger team.”
Tracey

dan“We have attended many i-Parent seminars and continue to learn new things every time. We can’t get enough.   If you have a chance to go, do it!  These seminars are such a gift to parents.

As parents, we have good intentions but Dr. Dave gives us the tools and encouragement to be both intentional and practical about what’s really important in raising kids.”

Pastor’s Comments

“The impact of having Dr. Dave and Donalyn Currie to RockPointe Church for a marriage event has been significant and on-going.  In several conversations with various couples who attended Fusion 2.1, not only did they express their heartfelt gratitude for the event, but each one shared how they have been applying some of the lessons they learned.  In short, hearts were softened, lives were changed, and God was honoured.”
Dave Mohr | Pastor | RockPointe Church-Bearspaw

“We saw God move in powerful ways through DFR – beyond our prayers and expectations. The prayer response at the end of the Sunday service was tremendous and spirit led. I truly believe there were many breakthroughs this weekend. Hurting people responded and healthy marriages were made stronger.”
Bruce Enns | Lead Pastor | Forest Grove Community Church

david-chiu“We at OnTrack have found it a real privilege and honour to work with Dr. Currie. Both he and his messages are well received by the Chinese community here in Canada and in Hong Kong. Those of us who have worked closed with him have learned to appreciate his Kingdom values, evangelistic zeal, cultural sensitivity-adaptability, as well as his empowering spirit. On top of that he is well received by our people because of his genuine and transparent life.”
Dr. David Chiu | President | OnTrack Leadership Institute

“Probably the most important thing I learned from the Doing Family Right weekend, was from watching Dave and Donalyn interact. As they lead and taught the Fusion material together, I saw love come out in its various forms; through hearing and seeing kindness towards each other, through playfulness, and even a rebuke to stay on track. While the material was great, watching their relationship unfold showed me and all our couples a great picture of love.”
Ron Hunka | Associate Pastor | Brentwood Church, Burnaby

“Much of the impact through DFR we will never know but we saw much evidence of God at work. I’ve already used the weekend as a follow-up in a number of settings including our Young Marrieds ministry.”
Bruce Enns | Lead Pastor | Forest Grove Community Church

“David Currie came into the life of our church over a period of 2 months to teach on family, parenting, and marriage as our Senior Pastor was on Sabbatical. Not only did he align with the vision and culture of our church, he supported the community be providing counselling for families and couples while he was here. Dr. Currie is a team player with a creative and innovative approach to communicating. He brought incredible lift to our church and he served with humility and innovation.”
Jeremiah Raible | Community Ministries Pastor | Mill Woods Assembly

darrell-derksen“It truly was the best one-day marriage builder I have been a part of. The sessions were relevant, fast paced and impactful. Many couples were encouraged and for some it provided an opportunity to take major steps in rebuilding. The workbook is a real gift and provides the practical next steps that people are looking for. It truly was a unique relationship-building weekend. We received very positive feedback from all age groups.
Darrell Derksen | Lead Pastor | Salem Church, Waldheim, SK

kevin-thiessen“Dr. Dave and Donalyn were a blessing to our congregation as they shared their experiences and learnings about marriage and family with clarity and appropriate vulnerability. We valued their openness and humor. In a time when families and marriages are breaking at the seams inside and outside the church, it was a lift to have the Curries join us and invest in the health, restoration and growth of our marriages and families.”
Kevin Thiessen | Pastor of Missions & Outreach | Victoria Central Baptist Church

“DFR is great value!! Time and money very well spent!”
Bruce Enns | Lead Pastor | Forest Grove Community Church

steve-savage“The greatest benefit of the DFR Ministry was that it got our people talking about spiritual things with their families like never before. The most heard comment “Please invite them back!” Our people loved it! We will do it again!”
Steve Savage | Lead Pastor | Port Rowan MB Church

“People haven’t stopped talking about the impact of the DFR weekend. We are having them back.”
James Layzell | Senior Pastor | City Life Church – Chilliwack

“The greatest benefit of the DFR Ministry was seeing marriages transformed. Watching couples talk and prayer together in very intimate ways, hearing the ‘buzz’ that followed events, and especially the great response to Sunday’s message, all make us truly thank God.”
Bruce Enns | Lead Pastor | Forest Grove Community Church

“Thanks for helping invest in our marriages & families. . . keep up the good work!”
Mike Penniga | Lead Pastor | Kelowna Gospel Fellowship

“The greatest benefit of the DFR Ministry was to get people to start thinking how to integrate their faith in their home through iParent and how to work through issues with their spouse through Fusion.”
David Tsai | Senior Pastor | Fujian Evangelical Church

“We were so privileged to have Dave speak in our community and equip parents to have effective relationships with their children. His engagement with the parents while speaking with stories and question answering allowed the audience to see the real Dr. Dave Currie as a fellow parent who has fought in the trenches with us. His insights astounded many as he managed complicated parenting matters into simple solutions with goals for parents that were applicable for today’s parent.”
Steve Roukema | Youth Pastor | Mountain Park Community Church

“I have confidence in recommending DFR without question or hesitation to other churches or ministries who want to see marriages and families transformed by God.”
Bruce Enns | Lead Pastor | Forest Grove Community Church


Board Comments

dave-jacki-miller“I think the best way for us to describe Dr. Dave, Donalyn and the DFR team is ‘genuine and heartfelt’. It doesn’t take long to see that this ministry is straight from their heart and they TRULY do care. They will laugh with you, cry with you (literally) and pray with and for you. Integrity – these are people that are really living out what they are teaching.”
Dave & Jacki Miller

mark-lynn-dumerton“Dr. Dave, together with his team, is committed to supporting families and reinforcing how God intended families to live. We believe if we “Do Family Right” it sets us up for success in relationships even beyond the family. We’ve been supporting DFR from its beginning as we see the Currie’s living out their passion in their own family which gives great credibility as they encourage others to “Do Family Right.”
Mark & Lynn Dumerton

brad-donna-willems“Over the last 15 years, we have watched, supported and experienced the effective training, counselling and workshops that Dr. Dave and Donalyn and the DFR team have delivered. In a world with so many broken relationships, DFR stands firmly in the gap, providing Biblical resources and ongoing support to maximize all your family relationships. We heartily endorse DFR’s expertise.”
Brad & Donna Willems
