About Tracy Chatterton:
Director of Ministry Photography
Tracy is a devoted woman of faith. She claims that God has always been there, through the good, the bad, the suffering, the pain, and the happy times. She did not always follow Christ in fact, she shares that she was so far away from Him it is only through Him that she is here to tell you this. 12 years ago Tracy was at the bottom of her life nowhere to go. Life was very tough and She had many decisions to make. One of them was that she decided to change her life. In that moment she had chosen to walk into a church on a Sunday morning all by herself. (looking back now, she was never alone). A month later she gave her heart to Christ and it has been a whirl wind ever since. Her life has changed so drastically in all good ways, her habits, her time, her thoughts, her actions, started getting easier things made sense, of course this was God’s plan all along. Her journey was just beginning, first She got remarried to a God-fearing man, then met a bunch of wonderful people through small group ministry, than He placed a beautiful Christian woman in her life whom both share the love and passion our their hearts, which is photography. Tracy is a mother of two adult boys, married to a loving Christian man, and surrounded by Christian friends. Here as UYM, She is blessed to take photos with her best friend, Heather.

Director of Editorial
Breanne is an 18 year old missionary who loves Jesus with all her heart. She has almost completed her ECE diploma through St. Lawrence College and is leaving soon for the mission field in Central America. She feels that God has some exciting, though extremely difficult things in store for her but she is confident that He will always bring her through. While she is still here in Canada, she is often found working hard at school assignments, singing to Jesus/leading worship, reminding herself that she is almost done school, or cooking up either some crazy- delicious international foods or equally delicious hippie, rabbit-food snack. Here at UYM, Breanne is excited to take on the role of “Director of the Prayer Team!”

“Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.” ~Ephesians 1:4-5
