Mitchell Diesen was born and raised in small-town Shell Lake Saskatchewan. He lived on his families acreage until the age of 18 where he moved to the “big city” of Saskatoon to attend post-secondary education. After attending one year at the University of Saskatchewan, Mitchell felt a call to attend Bible college to learn more about God and His Word. Mitchell attended Bethany College in Hepburn Saskatchewan. Unfortunately, this was Bethany’s last year. At the end of the school year, Bethany College closed its doors and Mitchell was school-less. Still knowing that God called him to attend Bible college, Mitchell felt God call him to Horizon College and Seminary in Saskatoon. Mitchell is currently enrolled in his final year of the Bachelor of Arts in Pastoral Leadership and plans to graduate in the spring of 2019.
Mitchell came to faith from a combination of circumstances. Mitchell’s faith began at Redberry Bible Camp where he first met and experienced Jesus Christ’s grace and redemptive power. Mitchell began to work at and take leadership roles at Redberry Bible Camp where he is still involved with the great ministry they have. Mitchell attended the local Lutheran Church for several years until he was invited to attend the Evangelical Free church 10 minutes east of Shell Lake in Mont Nebo, which had a youth program. Mitchell’s faith took its largest leap during his time at the University of Saskatchewan where he felt the call to Bible college.
Mitchell’s connection with Youth For Christ began during his time at the University of Saskatchewan. His friend and former cabin leader from Redberry, re-connected with and invited him to be involved with this floor hockey ministry that he was apart of. Mitchell was reluctant but agreed. Little did he know that decision would impact the trajectory of his life in a significant way. Mitchell has been involved in the Youth For Christ Hockey League since 2013 and has fallen in love with the ministry and the kids involved with it.
Mitchell began his internship process in the Fall of 2018. He is extremely excited to see where God will take him on this new season of life.
