Special Guest Speakers
We are honoured to have Peter and Luba Illyn with us as our special speakers this year.
Peter John Iliyn was born in Paraguay, South America as the oldest son of John & Sofia Iliyn in 1954 and was raised in San Francisco, CA. He earned his B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Material Science at the University of California, Berkeley. Peters parents came from Russia and raised him to speak the Russian language. He is fluent in Russian, having studied Russian grammar and literature for nine years in a church sponsored school.
He joined Youth With A Mission in the fall of 1976, serving at the Los Angeles base. One of his first assignments was to help start the first Slavic Training School in YWAM. For the next two years, he helped train scores of missionaries to serve in Russia and Eastern Europe. In 1978, Peter became the leader of this school and moved it up to Salem, Oregon YWAM base. During the summer of 1980, he lead a large group of missionaries into Russia where they did evangelism before and after the Olympic Games.
Peter married Luba in November, 1980 and they became the Salem YWAM base leaders in 1982. As of today, they have traveled to over 80 countries of the world. In 1994, Peter became the North American Director for Youth With A Mission. Both Peter and Luba teach extensively in many University of the Nations courses around the world.
Why Rendezvous? A Short History...
“Rendezvous” is a French word which means “a meeting at an appointed place and time”. In the early 1800’s, the First Nations people along with the French (voyageurs) and Scottish fur trappers met around current day Thunder Bay, Ontario which was their “Rendezvous”. The purpose for their meeting was to trade goods and furs and to talk business. But, it was so much more than that. As they assembled together, this diverse group shared stories about the land they were living in, danced, played competitive games, and simply enjoyed one another’s company.
Today, YWAM Canada’s “Rendezvous” is very much like those gatherings hundreds of years ago. The first “Rendezvous” for YWAM Canada was a North American Staff Conference held October 9-12, 2003 in Ottawa, Ontario. The gathering was a culmination of year-long activities throughout Canada that began with “The Goad” in Vancouver (October 2002) and “The Wake Tour” (April-June 2003). That first Canadian Thanksgiving weekend had a profound effect on YWAM Canada and therefore, we have called all future YWAM Canada biennial staff gatherings a “Rendezvous”.
Why do we continue to meet? We believe, as a YWAM Canada family, that it is important for us to have a “Rendezvous” every two years in order to gather together as one body. We come together to connect. We come together to remember who we are. We come together to remember why we do what we do. And, as we come together, we are able to receive fresh inspiration from God who longs to give us His heart for the people of Canada and beyond! Won’t you join us at the Rendezvous in August?
